Our experience of riding foils on stand up paddle boards for the past two years has allowed us to design the best possible board to stand up foil.
Being able to control the take-off from a stand up position really makes things easier and this is why Stand up foiling is fantastic. It’s not only an easier step at the begining and it also lets you charge steeper waves as you progress. The other key aspect is that on foil you’re flying far and coming back paddling on a stand up isa lot more comfortable than on a surf board.
The challenge when designing a stand up foil board is to keep all the volume you need to paddle, keep the stability and take off ability while taking away all volume you don’t need while flying.
The ROCKET is the result of all our experience in various waves and wind conditions from the Mediterranean waves to perfect reef break.
Short and narrow but still very stable thanks to the parallel outline, the Rockets will let you take off from your usual stand up paddle position and be supermaneuverable on the waves. Coming down under the 7’0 length is a fantastic step when foiling and brings you closer to the surf foil feeling.
To choose your size in this new discipline if you don’t have experience is easy, just look at the volume of your actual board and not the size.
For example if you’re using a 90 liter boards you should choose the 6’6 ROCKET with its 92 liters.
The foil mast adds a lot of stability so you can use a board which is narrower than usual.
