FOIL WING FOILS

Wingsurf hydrofoil GUIDE

Foils are created from the mast, fuselage, the front wing, and rear wing. Once we understand your board length, weight, and wind velocity to your using spot, we are able to suggest the proper length foil. You will need initially a mast period of about 75cm so your foil does now no longer breach out of the water.


Mast duration and construction – for novices we advise 75cm. Aluminium does the trick however in case you need to spend the extra € to keep on weight, carbon is lighter. Aluminum has a higher danger of corrosion, so make sure to rinse your mast and use tef-gel for the foil screws and foil mount screws to your foil plate. You want an extended sufficient mast so save you your foil from breaching from the water. You additionally need to save you the rails of your board from coming down and touching the water. A shorter mast could make it less complicated to examine on as it`s greater stable. A longer mast could make the foil greater maneuverable on tight turns (waves) and additionally work higher over huge chop and swell.


Front wing / back wing compatibility - When you go together with a huge front wing, you'll get greater balance with a bigger again wing as well. But in case you don`t want as lots lift in windier conditions, a smaller again wing will create much less lift. Some foils let you modify the pitch of the back / rear wing which may be a pleasant manner to modify how much lift you get from your foil.


Wing surface area - Wings are measured in square centimeters. We advise novices go together with a pleasant large strong wing to start. That can also additionally variety from 1600-2400 square centimeters (common length 2000cm) and we modify that length advice relying in your weight. As you progress, you can need to move down in wing surface area.
