Choose the board that suits you best.
Just like when you practice wakefoil, windfoil or wing foil, the choice of foil is fundamental to guarantee the best sensations. Thus, it is essential to take into account the area of the front wing and the height of the mast. To start in sup foil, a mast between 60 and 70 cm is ideal. As for the wing, the larger its surface area, the more lift it generates to allow the practitioner to get up easily. As for the weight and materials of the foil, there are fibreglass, carbon and aluminium foils. Carbon foils are the lightest and ensure exceptional performance.
The board will vary according to the weight and level of the rider. The beginner will turn to a SUP FOIL board with more volume (weight + 35-40 liters) for stability. An experienced rider will be able to take a smaller board right away.
The paddle is an important element when practicing Stand Up Paddle. It is also used to practice sup foil. To guarantee the best sensations and to facilitate the start in sup foil, fiberglass paddles are the most popular. They allow to easily absorb the efforts and bring the necessary strength to start on the wave. As for the aluminum paddles, they don’t have enough response to accelerate.
Please note that depending on the construction, the housings for mounting a foil may vary. We can find DEEP TUTTLE, DOUBLE PLATINUM or TUTTLE boxes. It is therefore necessary to make sure that the foil board and housing are compatible.
The foil is finding followers all over the world. It allows you to discover new riding sensations but also gives birth to many disciplines that are revolutionizing the world of sliding sports. The wing foil is the logical continuation of the sup foil. In particular, it is almost identical to the wing that comes with the wing. Wing foil can be practiced with your Sup board and your foil but there are also specific boards for this discipline.
