Description

Function

Board dedicated to kite foil from freeride to freestyle.

Introduction

The Catch FSP 2X have been developed to perform in the widest possible range of Kite Foil.

It’s a compact shape that will be able to approach “race” performance and give the best in the waves and 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 is even more compact and racy. It offers a wide choice of volumes in dimensions from 4’0 to 4’8. 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!

The volume is invisible with the new S rails. These S turned towards the hull make for ultra fine rails. As a result the touchdowns are totally painless. You can maneuver the chop upwind without any braking. It’s great. They also act as stiffeners, which further energizes the board.

The nose is wide for lift before flying, with a hull worked for a very soft feel on touchdowns and to avoid falling forward. A wide central flat zone is present in front of the foil to improve the glide at low speed. And its hollowed out 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, in wing and for dock starts but it’s not its only use. Its job is to kill it in kite foil.

5 boards from 4’0 to 4’8 for all sizes. With the Catch Foil FSP 2X, you foil with a board at the forefront of modernity, solid, dynamic, of high quality, and all this without breaking the bank thanks to our online sales system (direct from the shaper to the foiler, without intermediary).

  • The small 4’0 x 20L and 4’2 x 21L allow those with a high technical level or a small build to have maximum performance and freedom.
  • The 4’4 x 25L and the 4’6 x 30L are more generous in lift and are aimed at beginner to intermediate levels, or heavier riders of a confirmed level in search of comfort.
  • The 4’8 x 37L is very generous for kiting and is aimed at beginner levels, or riders of strong build who want ease in transitions.

Shape

A “rectangular” and short board, with a thick tail but a volume hidden by the S rails, the top to reduce inertia and pump to infinity 😉

This new hull shape is radical with a double concave nose that dampens the touchdowns by dissipating energy and guiding the water before take off. The Catch Foil is supple and stiff.

The flat deck maximizes control and the feel is in direct contact with the action.

 

 

Equipments

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 foil top plates on the market, 9cm between centers). So, you can mount all the foil top plates in the world according to your wishes and your style. The multiple strap inserts allow all adjustments from beginner to Pro. Nothing is missing.

Construction

These boards are equipped with an innovative technology called FSP 2X for the best weight / strength / performance compromise on the market. The gain is significant since on average 15% lighter than the 2019 FSPs.

The addition of a biaxial fibre reinforces the board enormously, therefore no concession has been made on the exemplary solidity of FSPs, on the contrary.

The PVC forms a 3mm hydrophobic shell over the entire board. This PVC sandwich offers the best dynamism while preserving strength, at an incredible weight.

It is by designing a new finishing technique, as close as possible to our prototypes made in our French factory, that we have succeeded in saving weight. We work with tinted resins to avoid as much as possible the paint that loads the board unnecessarily. Paint integrated into the resin, your board is enhanced with nobility and durability.

At GONG our boards are the highest quality. Our low prices can only be explained by our direct sales. If by misfortune you break them, they can be repaired from A to Z with the components we keep in stock for your favourite repairer.

 

Your benefits are clear:

1. An efficient shape created by one of the leaders in the world of surf foil.
2. A design at the cutting edge of R&D and ahead of its time.
3. Proven construction on thousands of boards.
4. Full Options finishing at a great price.
5. A light and solid board with one of the best technos on the market!!!
6. An incredible price that can only be explained by our direct relationship with you.
7. Simple maintenance and easy repairs because we have all components in stock.

Shape

  • Rocker: flat on the back half with a nose up to soften the touchdowns and avoid pearling.
  • Rails: very thin and not very voluminous thanks to the S shape : 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: hull with S rails to limit the touchdowns.

Instructions

Innovation is at the core of our products

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. The EPS foam blank does not deteriorate because it is really protected from water. And the repairs have a much larger support to stick on and blend seamlessly with the surrounding material.

This technology offers, at an affordable price, the incomparable strength/lightness ratio of full vacuum PVC Sandwich.

Buying guide

For whom?

From beginner to pro, the Catch Foil is for all levels.

Light or strong, ditto : The Catch Foil 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 in foil: it will be ideal and will accompany you for a very long time.

What size?

  • The small 4’0 x 20L and 4’2 x 21L allow those with a high technical level or a small build to have maximum performance and freedom.
  • The 4’4 x 25L and the 4’6 x 30L are more generous in lift and are aimed at beginner to intermediate levels, or heavier riders of a confirmed level in search of comfort.
  • The 4’8 x 37L is very generous for kiting and is aimed at beginners, or heavy riders who want ease in transitions.

In all cases, they are very compact shapes with a great dynamism.

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 race 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 GONG 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 choice is to complete it with a kitesurf board for the 20kts range and more.
Of course, it 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.

What settings?

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 foil 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.

Strapped or strapless?

Riding strapless is sexy because you feel free. But quite honestly, performances will be lower. So it’s up to you to see if the feeling prevails over the performances.

With straps you will have a lot more control and a lot less risk of hitting the foil that flips under your feet. You can recover from crazy situations just by pulling on the feet. You can go faster, jump and push for tricks.

Put your straps in the central position (3rd hole) for the fronts, and the same goes for the rear strap if you are still riding in the straps.

If you want to be able to remove the back foot for pumping, place the rear strap at the first or second hole.

Included equipments

  • ​1 x footstrap light GONG and 1 x footstrap in V light GONG (screws included).
  • Deck Pad 5 mm grooved for a total adherence and comfort. All Factory installed.
  • 5 x inserts, for footstraps and 5 holes to optimise position choices.
  • 2 Us boxes for foil mounting with a 4 screw top plate.
  • Automatic depressurization screw.

Pricing

GONG KITE CATCH FOIL FSP 2X: 549 €

  • We make quality products. We are not “low cost”.

Shipping

Availability:

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 😉

 

Pre-order:

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:

  1. All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
  2. 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.

 

Delays:

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.

 

Shipping Fees: 

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.

 

Any questions:

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 😉

 

Eco-responsible packaging:

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.

 

Delivery:

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.

 

Returns:

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 our contact form to help you.

  1. Hugues T. (verified owner)

    Cette planche est top, légère et solide !!! En strapless pour le light ou les vagues ou une simple promenade, on trouve rapidement et facilement sa position … Puis hop, on s’assoit sur la board !! Trop trop bon, un tapis volant ! Pour envoyer des sauts et surtout pour la vitesse, je montes mes straps et GO ! La multitude de choix pour les straps, c’est trop pratique et on trouve son stance idéal pour une position RACE digne des champions !! MERCI !!

  2. Cyril (verified owner)

    Je vous partage mon retour de nombreux essais des planches en 4’0 et 4’4. Kitefoiler niveau avancé, ride strapless et 78/80 kg :mrgreen:

    Tout d’abord la 4’4, la taille passe partout! Très facile au waterstart, elle se cale très bien dans l’eau et lors des premiers mètres. Le nose reste calé et ne pointe pas downwind à la première seconde, évitant les gamelles en avant. Elle permet de sortir facilement de l’eau en prenant de suite de la vitesse.

    En nav c’est un régale, elle est déjà bien maniable sans être “extreme” comme la 4’0. Les touchettes passent facilement, sa longueur et le gros double concave évitent d’enfourner ou de donner un gros coup de frein à main. En vague et carving les rails super fins évitent d’accrocher, on sent à peine si on frotte dans les courbes et on n’est surtout pas déstabiliser!

    La 4’0 est bien entendu plus perf, un vrai skate sous les pieds! Hyper maniable, sensation de ne rien avoir sous les pieds et être connecté au foil en direct 8)
    les touchettes sont moins facile qu’avec la 4’4 mais encore un coup, dans 80% des cas le concave fait son taf et vous ressort de l’eau très rapidement. Même si elle est courte, ce n’est pas une board uniquement pour les Pros! Avec une pelle avant assez puissance comme une Curve voir Fluid M, vous passez très peu de temps sur l’eau. Généralement, vous envoyez le kite et la planche est déjà en l’air! Du coup avoir une planche très joueuse mais qui reste tolérante comme la Catch n’est pas trop compliqué 😉

    Globalement peu importe la taille elles sont très joueuse. La compacité du shape permet vraiment de joué avec le foil , il y aura toujours assez peu d’inertie ce qui facilite les manoeuvres tel que les jibes ou tacks.

    Pour les débutants complets en quête de facilité ou le vent mega light, préférez tout de même les 4’6 et 4’8 qui vous aideront avec la glisse au départ et garderont du volume sur l’avant qui limitera de planter le nose lors du marsouinage des débuts!

    Bonne sessions à tous 😉

  3. Fabien

    J’adore cette board, construction solide, légère et parfaite en kitefoil. Les rail US et les réglages de straps sont en vrai plus pour trouver l’équilibre parfait.
