PACK KITE FOIL HIPE RISE EVOLUTION
Accessible and performing Kite foil. A large spare parts offer enables evolution.
The KITE FOIL HIPE RISE EVOLUTION pack is your ideal ally to start and follow your evolution in kite foil.
You have two front wings at your disposal : one for your getting started and a second one for progression. You gain performance and top speed quickly. 100% compatible with all the front wings and stabs of our range, this pack is a “must have” that will allow you to modulate your set-up to infinity.
A complete pack includes:
- a board GONG SUP INFLATABLE HIPE of the size of your choice.
- a foil GONG KITE FOIL ALLVATOR FREERIDE of the colour of your choice (red or green).
- a fuselage GONG FOIL ALLVATOR FUSELAGE SURF/SUP.
- a Front Wing Rise M of the colour of your choice (red or green).
The HIPE is a revolution in the foil approach.
This revolution is not just about inflatable qualities, but to the unequalled performances that the HIPE delivers. It will be almost impossible for you to find a significant difference with a rigid board. Its patented concept is so efficient.
L’Ours’s team has designed a carbon plate that takes all the foil strength. Glued strongly under the inflatable structure, this piece, made of 2.4kg of pure prepreg carbon and two foam stringers, is a jewel of composite expertise. By its design it provides precisely what is needed in terms of mechanics to be as rigid as a classic board, without adding a lot to the total weight.
You have both feet firmly placed on an inflexible carbon support, via the inflatable chamber. The feeling is clearly the one of a rigid board with a comfortable pad. No more, no less. It’s really great.
Tested by the team in all conditions, it has never shown any weakness even in 45 knots. In the light wind, we love its glide on water which is specific to inflatable boards. The round rails and the thick tail boost the start. You take off easily, at least as fast as with a rigid.
Advantages are numerous:
- Ease of use, on land but also in the water.
- Transport of course.
- Solidity because the inflatable is not sensitive to shocks.
- Safety if you damage your board.
- Performances of a rigid board.
In kite, the two smaller sizes will give you the ideal compromise between comfort and performance. A real revolution.

The foil Freeride:
The largest part of the work done on this Foil was intended to leave you with fully stable ensemble at low speeds and which conserves the right aptitudes at higher speeds and proper navigation with stronger winds.
The spec sheet is fully respected, this Foil makes it incredibly easy to get into the sport for beginners, it is reassuring, its behavior precise and easy to anticipate.
It is also an interesting choice for an experienced rider who wants a Foil with the right lift in lower speeds allowing them to work the kite high without having to constantly work in opposition to the Foil.. Its upwind performance is excellent, and her max speed isn’t hindered, and much higher than what most of the other Foils on the market offer which are more focused on lift at low speeds.
It is available today with a 65cm (712 cm2) Wing and a 45cm (272 cm2) Stab, a configuration that permits the exploitation of the slightest breeze as much as the strongest winds. It is completely dismountable and the customization choices are many, cost effective and our spare parts catalog well stacked.

The Front Wing M:
These front wings are dedicated to progression. Generous but without excess, they fly at very low speed. The low ratio increases maneuverability, which combined with the thickness tolerance quickly gives you the feeling of control that will reassure you.
All our wings have soft “tips”. Their tips are rounded and voluminous to limit the danger. We invite you to be very careful in spite of everything. Also, the trailing edges are blunt so as not to be sharp.
The wings are made of carbon and glass on high density PU foam. With a very high number of layers and compression at very high pressure and temperature, our wings are almost indestructible.
The M has a wingspan of 70 cm for a (projected) area of 1258cm2 (1453cm2 developed), and its volume is 2,0L. The surface area is large with a very tolerant profile of 3,0cm thick.
Note: These front wings are not compatible with our Allvator kite fuselage.

This pack is composed of a second fuselage (one kite fuselage and one surf fuselage), which allows you 100% compatibility with all the wings and stabs of our range.

Innovation is at the core of our products
ICS TECHNOLOGY – Inflatable & Carbon Synthesis
Advantages of the inflatable.
- Drop Stitch technology double layer welded.
- Air pressure: 15 to 20 psi.
- Compact, the board fits in a bag.
- Practical: inflates in 2 minutes.
- Aesthetics: The result is very beautiful.
- Strong: great resistance to abuse.
- Durable: 100% repairable.
Our wings are made of 90% Prepreg 3K carbon, with more than 15 layers of carbon fiber in total. High stress points such as the joints and connections are reinforced with Kevlar to resist tearing and glass for tolerance. Moulded at high pressure and high temperature on a foam core, our wings are practically indestructible. Both rigid and floating, they are the perfect balance between contained weight and infinite durability.
This technology has been tested and proven for over two years without any breakage on 10,000 ALLVATOR foil wings. In the event of a violent impact on a rock, you can easily repair them and they will be as good as new.
You will never see a GONG wing open on a leading edge because our unique draping technique crosses the layers of fibres. So there is no line of joint on our wings. The entire outline has overlapping gaps, just like the rails on your top of the range boards.
Masts, deck and fuselage are made of aluminium for a contained price. We use high quality aluminium, extruded for the mast and CNC cut for the other parts.
This foil is completely dismountable to adapt to all sports at a lower cost and give you the possibility to replace a damaged part. A complete spare parts catalogue is available, to allow you to make it compatible with multiple supports (surf/SUP/kite), and to explore the full range of use of the foil in every sport and at every level.
Please note that GONG is at the forefront of foil development. We have been at the forefront of the creation of the largest foil factory that produces the major brands today. 18 months of intense work and dozens of tools developed. So don’t imagine that our foils are made in a gloomy garage. We develop all our products according to the rules of the art, with state-of-the-art 3D software, countless tests, with a Team at the highest level. This is one of the reasons why we can offer low prices and clean products: we know what we are doing from A to Z.
Whether you’re a beginner, or just looking for a coooool ride, this is the carefree go-to board ! It is soft and easy, while remaining very effective.
Its role is to make your life easier. So a pro will surely find it too mild but it will make the happiness of thousands of practitioners in search of simplicity, security, without compromising performance.
The HIPE is the ultimate board to progress without complicating your life. The HIPE can handle a few hits, ideal for initiating your friends or for practicing wake foiling behind a boat.
You can start smoothly with this foil. Everything is simpler and safer. And in case of damage you have all the spare parts for a ridiculous price.
This is the foil for beginners, but also for progression. It’s not just a school foil that will limit you at your fifth sesh.
In surfing it’s ultra simple, soft and easy to handle. Really easy to get flying, difficult to stall, it is a model of tolerance based on proven profiles in the world of military aviation.
When pumping, you have lift. It’s not a fast foil, but our many videos testify to its qualities. You pump quietly, more on the legs than on the cardio. And above all without error, because the most exhausting thing in pumping are errors.
The set is ultra compact, so very easy to take in your suitcases for a weekend trip or to the other side of the world.
Positioning of the foil ?
For the GONG foils, place the top plate at the rear third of the US rails.
The more you move it forward, the more it makes the board pitch up. The further you move it backwards, the more the nose of the board dives.
Be careful not to move it too far forward. We often tend to forget to use the back foot, especially when we have a kitefoil background. However, moving the foil back a little forces you to put more weight on the back foot and gives a more harmonious attitude and reduces effort.
Good to Know:
Never leave your board in the sun, even less an inflatable board, and even less a black carbon plate that will heat up very quickly. You might see it peeling off!!!
Don’t screw further than the bottom of the box, otherwise you’ll get into the skin of the inflatable. We deliver US squares with no opening, but be careful.
Never let your foil board get mistreated in the waves, especially close to the shore. You must protect it from major forces. A wave that carries your board away and rolls it away can do a lot of damages.

PACK KITE FOIL HIPE RISE EVOLUTION: 854€
- 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 Foil in a surfshop, it would cost 1709€ (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 😉
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 our contact form to help you.

When you practice Foil you expose yoursef to possible serious Risks. A poor mastering of a Foil can expose you to Cuts and/or Serious Bodily Harm, even Death for youself and possibley others around you.
Foiling should be practiced, in all circumstances, by taking precautions and taking into cosideration all that is involved and associated with SURF/SUP sports. Remember that a Foil is long and has an edge that could cause slicing and is capable of reaching very high speeds. Getting hit by a Foil, or hitting another, can incrue dramatic and highly unwanted consequences.
Always Foil far from others, and in waters that are secure and without obstacle.
Always wear a helmet and protective vest that assures Floatability. Always wear a full body Neoprane Wetsuit.
When handling and manipulating a Foil be careful not to cut yourself along its edges.
GONG does Not Accept and Declines any and all responsability in case of accident that implicates a GONG Foil. The practicing of this sport and the use of our equipment makes the user fully resposable for his/her actions while being a Foil User.
