Foilboard - Holy Grail

Postby irwe » Wed Aug 04, 2021 10:20 am

Is there a Foilboard out there that would allow you to do

1. KiteFoil (8 - 15 kts)
2. WingFoil (> 15 kts)
3. ProneFoil (no wind or Offshore)

< 5'4" for easy Air travel

Assume 75 kg Intermediate - Expert Foiler at all 3 disiplines

I understand that there will be compromises when designing a board for all 3 sports.

If you can handle between 30 and 40L for winging then I would recommend these.

These will work for all 3 sports.

I think Gunnar is right (of course he would be), a ~35L wing/prone board that you can use for kiting is probably the best option.
