NEWS: THE 2024 WING BOARD ARE AVAILABLE!

A new range that announces a paradigm shift and an ever wider range of programs.

 

 

The emergence of a new product line is always thrilling. The developmental priorities draw inspiration from the World Tour, where cutting-edge equipment has elevated wing foiling to unprecedented heights. Across various global spots, we witness the growing popularity of new maneuvers, accompanied by a remarkable expansion of wind ranges.

The 2024 wings have nothing in common with the wings that won world titles in 2022 or even 2023. The shapes of the 2024 boards are evolving simultaneously towards more glide to take advantage of the efficiency gains of the wings, particularly in terms of power. More than an evolution of shapes, it is a paradigm shift that redefines the entire gear range the conditions that will make you fly.

This new range also illustrates an adjustment of programs to the wing foiling of tomorrow:

  • Increased accessibility to disciplines considered very exclusive, such as intense wave riding and freestyle.
  • Pure speed and Race runs thanks to new wing designs reminiscent of the glory days of windsurfing.
  • Conquering ultra-light wind conditions with the new Cruzaders.
  • The growing role of boards capable of scoring SUP foil sessions.
  • And more broadly, the extreme versatility of practices using compact boards thanks to the wide range of use of modern foils and the adjustments they allow.

The direction of the evolutions is clear: more flight time, more performance, more sensations, while retaining the essence of wing foiling—a transversal accessibility: skill levels, experiences, spots, conditions, disciplines, … In 2024, you can display your ambitions on the water without any hesitation!

The ongoing paradigm shift

The new shapes of the 2024 range reveal the direction the sport is heading in. We are riding on increasingly smaller foils and venturing into wind ranges where we couldn’t imagine flying before. A spectacular evolution supported by successive developments in wings and foils. We observe an average reduction of foil surfaces ranging from 200cm2 to 500cm2 between 2021 and 2023/24. The goal now is to glide before flying, reflected in the 2024 shapes that are made more planing with a highly tensioned tail rocker and sharp rails.

So, this paradigm shift necessitates a change in the design of shapes, transitioning from ‘we release the board from the water as quickly as possible by pumping onto the foil’ to ‘we plane before flying (allowing the use of a smaller foil)’. This trend is visible at high level with the scoring of repops and combos. In 2022 only 1 trick was scored per tack: only 1! In 2023, the introduction of combos, where two moves are seamlessly linked together, earned a perfect score of 10 points at the Leucate event. A total change.
