The Flint FSP Pro is the versatile solution to enjoy both wing and SUP foiling flight sensations. Its performance oriented shape is not ideal for beginners but perfect for moving up a gear after starting out on a more accessible board, as Anthony explains on our forum.
“I share with you my feelings with the Flint 5’6 of 95 l, both in wing and in SUP foiling.
I didn’t take the time to write about it earlier so now I’ve had it for over a year since I switched from the Zuma 6’0.
I have mostly ridden it in wing foiling, I inflate my wing as soon as there is the slightest puf of air. I only do SUP foiling when it’s not suitable for wing foiling.
In wing foiling
The board is very stable, it reminded me of the sensations I had on my windfoil board. Healthy, easy and fluid gliding. Its shape easily generates speed and allows it to absorb small errors in pumping.
The Flint has a more tapered shape to optimize the take off, it allowed me to progress in learning the maneuvers because when you are not yet 100% successful, you have to do a take off again each time you touch down for good. As a result, its glide and its stability make each loss of flight much less punitive which optimizes progress, it’s great!
In addition the Flint is the only board with the boxes more centered on the board, so we gain both in take off by lightening the nose to take off earlier but also and above all more maneuverability in flight and in maneuvers by advancing the pivot point, so easier to learn jibes and tacks.
Strapless, V-strap or centered in Goofy or Regular, we have all the options, so it’s great in terms of versatility. According to the program of the day, we do what we want!

It’s a board that takes off early on the wave, as the box is advanced, the tail lifts you on the wave to help gain speed. Once in flight, the board is super light and super maneuverable, a treat!! In pumping, lightness is just great for moving on with less energy.
I recommend it to all those who want to progress in wing foiling while maintaining versatility with a board that is at the top in SUP foiling.”
