Board dedicated to Kitefoil from freeride to freestyle.
The Catch FSP 2X have been developed in conjunction with our latest generation Allvator Foils to perform in the widest possible range of Kitefoil.
It’s a compact shape that will be able to approach “race” performance and give the best in the waves, while going through freestyle. What could be better than a Board capable of very high speeds, jumping, surfing and tricks in a 100m x 100m square?!
This new FSP 2X range offers a wide choice of volumes in dimensions under 5′. At the same time, wide at the tips and very short, this “square” outline carries a lot for its size. Never bulky, always sufficient, it offers an incredible feeling of lightness and freedom. For those to whom the word no-nose speaks, we’re all in!
Relatively thick in the middle for early gliding and volume. But also, ultra-thin rails to make the touchdowns totally painless. You can maneuver the chop upwind without any braking. It’s great.
The nose is wide for lift before flying, with a hull worked for a very soft water feel and to avoid falling forward. A wide central flat zone is present all over the hull to improve the glide at low speed. And its pronounced kick tail helps you to get out of the water. The Board is fine-tuned and honed for action.
With its countless adjustment possibilities, the Catch is suitable for all levels from beginner to Pro; but also for all Foils with a Top Plate.
Strapped or strapless, it’s up to you: it will be ultra performant strapped and very pleasant with its top-of-the-range strapless pad.
The Catch Foil works perfectly in Surf Foil, but it is not its only use. Its job is to kill it in Kitefoil.
These Boards are equipped with an innovative technology called FSP 2X for the best compromise weight / strength / performance on the market. The gain is significant since the entire Board is made of PVC sandwich. This hydrophobic material is 3 times stronger than traditional foam. It creates an ultra-resistant waterproof shell. The US Boxes are also placed in a high-density PVC block. On top of the Sandwich, the addition of a Biaxial Fiber greatly strengthens the Board: an exemplary resistance to bending and shocks. We then work with tinted resins to avoid as much as possible the paint which loads the Board unnecessarily. When resin tinted, your Board gains in nobility and durability.
The Catch Foil FSP 2X are equipped with top-of-the-range pads that provide maximum grip. These Boards are fitted with two US Boxes (the standard Box for Top Plate Foils on the market, 9cm between centers). So, you can mount all the Top Plate Foils in the world according to your wishes and your style. The multiple strap inserts allow all adjustments from beginner to Pro. It has a leash plug at the back to fix your leash for Surf Foil sessions. Nothing is missing.
Rocker : flat on the back half with a big kick to take off early, then nose up to soften the touches, and avoid pearling.
Rails : very thin and not very voluminous thanks to the chines : big angle grip without any touches.
Volume : relatively important especially on the largest sizes to keep a great accessibility.
Outline : difficult to make more compact 😉 the lines of the noses have been reworked to make the whole harmonious.
Tail : large diamond cut for immediate glide and control in the chop without losing speed in case of a touchdown.
Nose : diamond nose with a very marked V underneath, it makes it easier to manage the touchdowns in the chop even with a lot of angle.
Deck : Flat deck for control and precision steering.
Bottom : chined hull to limit the touchdowns.
Innovation is at the core of our Boards
Technology FSP 2X :
3D Shape on modeling software.
Preshape by the numerical control for total reliability.
Shape control by traditional templates, finishing of the last mm 100% by hand.
100% Epoxy Board and EPS Blank Foam: solid and lightweight.
Deck, hull and rails in PVC Vacuumed Sandwich: incomparable strength and incredible dynamism.
Deck: integral PVC/Fiberglass Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC foam core and 2 layers of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz Biaxial fiberglass, fiberglass reinforcements on sensitive areas.
Hull: integral PVC/Fiberglass Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC foam core and 2 layers of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz Biaxial fiberglass, fiberglass reinforcements on the sensitive areas.
Specific Foil reinforcements: high-density PVC block housing the two US Rail Boxes. Three layers of carbon cover the Boxes. Laminated PVC slats connect the reinforcement to the deck for maximum durability.
Rails: the PVC Sandwich structure completely covers the rails: increased structural strength, very good shock resistance.
Hot Coat integrated Tinted Resin: nobility of the process, weight reduction and solidity of the finish.
Matt custom finish, hand-made, for weight reduction and better glide.
The FSP 2X technology is easily repairable when new in case of a Ding. The PVC foam of the sandwich is waterproof and prevents water from entering on everyday shocks.
This technology offers, at an affordable price, the incomparable strength/lightness ratio of full Vacuum PVC Sandwich.

La 4’8 est aussi polyvalente, mais avec plus de confort.
La 5’0 est super confortable pour débuter, pour les costauds et pour le lightwind.
Dans tous les cas ce sont des shapes très compacts avec des réactivités proches.
Quel est le kite idéal ?
La Catch Foil FSP 2X est fabuleuse avec une Strutless pour performer dans les vents inférieurs à 20nds. Cette aile est proche d’une aile de race dans ses aptitudes, mais avec la sécurité du boudin. Elle vole dans rien et cape de folie, tout en restant maniable. Idéale
Mais la Catch est aussi très copine avec la Unik qui apportera beaucoup de maniabilité pour enchainer les courbes par exemple.
Quel est le foil idéal ?
La Catch est top avec nos foils Allvator.
Le Freestyle, le Freewave et le Freeride selon la dominante de vos envies de navigation.
Le must est d’upgrader ce foil avec un mat Pro monobloc carbone 100cm.
Et pour les débutants, un mat plus court est facilitant. 65cm par exemple.
Quelles copines de quiver ?
La Catch Foil FSP 2X a été testée de 4nds jusqu’à plus de 60nds de vent avec succès. Autant dire qu’elle n’a pas de limite. Mais le programme optimum du foil est de 6nds à 20nds pour la plupart de gens.
Le plus courant est de la compléter avec une planche de surf kite pour la plage 20nds et plus.
Evidemment, elle adore surfer en retirant les straps et lui montant un foil de surf. Et qui dit surf foil, dit surf tout court quand les vagues sont creuses. Vous n’aurez que l’embarras du choix.
Quels réglages ?
Les possibilités étendues de réglages des positions de footstraps sur la planche et du foil dans les rails US permettent d’accompagner les débutants dans leur progression en ridant très en avant du foil pour calmer le comportement de la planche au départ et de progressivement rapprocher ces deux points (appuis du foiler, et centre de poussée du foil) pour arriver au parfait équilibre de vol et performer une fois atteint le niveau technique suffisant.
Un débutant va avancer les straps à fond et reculer le foil à fond.
Et un Pro sera à fond derrière pour le strap arrière et au milieu devant. Tandis que son foil sera entre le centre et le tiers arrière des box.
From Beginner to Pro, the Catch is for all levels.
Light or strong, ditto : The Catch range offers all the solutions.
What’s it for?
Almost everything you love on a Foil is great on the Catch Foil FSP 2X.
If you want to go fast : it loves it.
You want to fly early : it has high volumes.
You want to jump : it’s got a full PVC sandwich.
You want to surf : its shape is perfect.
You want to pull tricks : it’s made for it.
You want to start out in Foil : it will be ideal and will accompany you for a long time.
The 4’4 is the ultimate: light or race only.
The 4’6 is super versatile and 100% performance.
The 4’8 is also versatile, but with more comfort.
The 5’0 is super comfortable for beginners, for the strong and for the lightwind.
In all cases, they are very compact shapes with similar reactivity.
What is the ideal Kite?
The Catch Foil FSP 2X is fabulous with a Strutless to perform in winds below 20 knots. This Kite is close to a pedigree Kite in its abilities, but with the safety of the strut. It flies in nothing and has crazy upwind, yet still manageable. Ideal.
But the Catch is also very friendly with the Unik which will bring a lot of maneuverability to link curves for example.
What is the ideal Foil?
The Catch is great with our Allvator Foils.
Freestyle, Freewave and Freeride according to your navigating wishes.
The best is to upgrade this Foil with a 100cm Carbon Monobloc Pro Mast.
And for beginners, a shorter Mast is easier. 65cm for example.
Quiver Partners ?
The Catch Foil FSP 2X has been successfully tested from 4 knots up to 60 knots of wind. That means it has no limits. But the optimum range of the Foil is 6 to 20 knots for most people.
The most common is to complete it with a Kite Surfboard for the 20kts range and more.
Of course, she loves to surf by removing the straps and mounting a Surf Foil. And when we say Surf Foil, we mean real surfing when the waves are hollow. You’ll be spoiled for choice.
The wide range of adjustment possibilities of the footstrap positions on the Board and the Foil in the US Rails allow you to accompany beginners in their progression by riding very much in front of the Foil to calm the Board’s behavior at the start and to progressively bring these two points (Foiler stance and foil center of the pressure zones) closer together to achieve the perfect balance of flight and to perform once you have reached a sufficient technical level.
A beginner will move the straps all the way forward and the Foill all the way back.
And a Pro will be full back for the back strap and in the middle front. While his foil will be between the center and the back third of the boxes.
3 footstraps light GONG (screws included).
Deck Pad 5 mm grooved for adherance and comfort and integrated tail kicker pad for perfect foot placement while in strapless. All Factory installed.
Inserts, multiple for optimizing possible footstraps position choices.
2 Us Boxes for foil mounting with a 4 screw top plate.
GONG FOILBOARD CATCH FSP 2X: 549 €
We make quality products. We are not “low cost”.
We sell simply without an intermediary thanks to the internet : direct from shaper to surfer.
If we sold this board in a surfshop, it would cost 1049€ (taking into account traditional margins that we should offer to distributers and stores).
The dates of availability of all our products are written on each product page, in the size and colour of the product concerned.
These dates are valid at the moment you consult the site and/or place an order. It is possible that this product may be ordered a few seconds after your consultation. It then becomes unavailable. If you have placed an order, this change does not concern you: the product you order is still available on the date indicated at the time of your order.
We sell several thousand products per week. The stocks are therefore very evolutionary. But our management always shows you the real availability live.
If it’s available online: it’s available 😉
Some articles are proposed in pre-order during their routing to our premises. You can buy this article which will arrive at our place in a few weeks. This method avoids the fair to grab upon receipt of the lot and the disappointed ones who would not order within the hour.
Upon receipt, we will ship it to you as a regular order.
The times indicated on the pre-orders are 95% reliable. First of all, because we only pre-sell finished products that are arriving to us after Customs, and therefore shipped right after. And also, because we add decent margins with concern to the dates announced by the shipping companies or railways.
However, a Worker Strike, a breakdown, an overbooking, can unfortunately happen. In the case of a delay, you will be notified by email (check your spam). It is generally less than a week and totally independent of our good will.
As soon as we receive the container in La Baule, we ship your order within three working days. Then the carrier takes over: delivery time and tracking numbers are under their responsibility.
It is possible that the date displayed on the online for the pre-order of the item you have ordered and paid for may change for two reasons:
All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
The container is late and we have to shift the date by a few days. (Strikes, breakdowns, overbooking, can unfortunately happen). You will be notified by email.
We never change the delivery dates of a container without notifying customers.
The dates that we announce are shipping deadlines, which GONG has in stock and available here physically.
We usually give a shipping time within 3 days, but in most cases, we ship within 24/48 hours. Normally morning orders leave in the afternoon for example.
Then the transport service takes over. The variables are then important between the customer being delivered to France (very fast) or Bulgaria (a good week) or to a forwarding agent or to Asia or the USA… You understand that each location has its own type of delay.
We work with serious and well-known carriers. They do their utmost to make you happy even if a snafu can happen. In any case, we are there to make things easier and to arrange our customers.
Contrary to others, we do not hide shipping costs in the price of our products. At GONG everyone knows exactly what he pays. The transport is charged at its strictest value, and the person who comes to pick up his products does not pay hidden transport fees.
Shipping costs are calculated according to the weight and volume of each package, and your delivery address. To this is added a labour time of order preparation.
The invoicing of the shipping costs is identical in continental France and in the bordering European countries. A surcharge is automatically invoiced for deliveries to the most distant European countries and all European islands.
For a shipment in French overseas departments and territories or outside Europe, our logistics department will contact you before the payment stage to give you an estimate of the shipping costs. You will be able to accept this estimate and pay your order, or refuse it and cancel your order.
We answer you within 24 hours by email. But 95% of your questions are answered on the site. Try to use our contact form which will guide you to all these answers.
Don’t forget to read the Forum, where thousands of users exchange information and experiences.
In any case, don’t panic. If you don’t get an answer during the weekend, it’s normal: the team is resting 😉
We are passionate and professional in our job. Our only goal is to make you happy, as much as possible 😉
Preserving the environment is a top priority. That’s why we are doing everything possible to reduce our environmental footprint.
The first thing is to sell quality products that will last, be repairable and will please you for a long time.
The second thing is to sell for less. Most of the pollution coming from a Board is in its use (the km driven to use it) and in the countless environmental damages you have to do to pay for it. Each euro spent is a sum of damage related to your life quite simply: eating, working hard etc… By reducing the price of our products, we significantly reduce your ecological footprint on this item.
For our shipments we use:
Flexi-Hex: ecological packaging of very high resistance.
Paper Craft Scotch Tape.
Final packaging made of high-end cardboard.
All this for:
Reusable and recyclable packaging.
An almost total reduction of single-use plastic.
Maximum protection and impact resistance thanks to the innovative design of Flexi-Hex honeycomb (35mm thick).
Tracking of your parcels :
The tracking of deliveries is directly ensured by the carriers to whom we have entrusted your parcels. They will contact you by email or SMS to allow you to choose the delivery methods and to follow the route of your package.
If you ask us for this tracking, we will have to do as you do: we will go see on the carrier’s app because they are the ones who manage and are responsible for this job.
We collaborate with the best transport providers to deliver you everywhere in Europe and in the world in very short delays.
We have chosen them for their quality of service and their respect of deadlines. 80% of your orders reach their destination in less than 48 hours of processing in metropolitan and continental France.
For Europe, the delays vary from 3 to 6 days depending on the country of destination.
For the rest of the world, delays can be up to 15 days.
Please note that the transport time is added to the preparation/shipping time. Two companies work on your order (GONG and the carrier). Each one controls its activity and commits itself to optimize its delays so that you are delivered as soon as possible, in good condition and at a reasonable price.
Reception of your Board:
Upon delivery, simply open and inspect the condition of your Board in the presence of the carrier. A complete email explaining the procedure to follow will be sent to you when your order is shipped.
In spite of our requirements and all the care we take in packaging and protecting your Board, transportation hazards may occur. Even if it concerns less than 2% of everything we ship around the world, a Board can suffer a more or less important transportation shock.
But in any case, don’t worry, just refuse it, and a new Board will be shipped back to you.
You can choose to return your products if:
You are not satisfied (14 days right of retraction).
You want to change an item.
You have refused your package.
For each situation, contact us by email to help you.
