Tarifa foil boards - worth to try?

Postby Thomas1kite » Tue Jan 16, 2018 1:17 pm

Hi all. I'm planning to start competing this year at international level and getting all race equipment right now.
Next few months will be training in south of Spain and was thinking to order foil board from some local brand/shapers. Came across Tarifa foil boards in Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/tarifafoilboards/) , which looks very promising, but does anyone actually tried these boards and have some feedback? I don’t see any riders sponsored or riding this boards at international level so far.

Hello, Thomas.
I'm Denis Taradin one of the founders of this brand and a pro-rider.
I am also an international athlete. I finished 5th at the Europeans 2017 (Stambul) and 10th at the worlds 2017 (Oman).

We started developing this boards back at the beginning of 2017. My goal was to develope the best boards on the market primarily for me to use in the competition. However, since many riders liked the boards, we've started the commercial sale.

Currently, we have the highest quality and leading design. We will bring couple boards to the first HFPT stop in Mexico for people to see. Also if you are planning to train in the south of Spain (I assume Tarifa). You can check the boards out at the place, and possibly test them.

If you have any questions, I am happy to help. PM me on facebook https://www.facebook.com/TaradinDenis

Havent ridden one myself, but after looking at one up close, they are really nice. I've heard good things. I dont think you'd be disappointed!

HI Thomas,

a friend of mine is selling a brand new Tarifa Foilboard together with a brand new Chubanga V2 Foil. He lives in Berlin. When you are interested then send me a private mail.

Cheers!
