AFS - 1

Innovation, pure performance, sensations, balance, magic...

Strong words : still they can’t describe the rider’s  feelings when he flies, well above water, close to 3 times faster than  the wind, from 7 knots of wind speed upwards. Years of test and tweaking  now allow us to present a progressive board which will allow you to  learn and live unique sensations !

What is Hydrofoil Windsurfing?

This is a different way of expressing oneself

on the water. This is  sailing well above the sea, with different references, a different feet  stance and totally different toy. It’s a game of concentration and  balance.

Who’s that for?

The AFS-1 can be mastered by any experienced windsurfer who knows how  to get a standard board on a fast plane and jibe it (mastering all  funboard techniques). Still, they must accept to take the time to learn «  foiling » step by step.

How?

The AFS-1 board is a” progressive” concept. Its 112 liters volume is  average, and allows getting quickly onto a plane. When flying, there is  very little pull from the rig into the arms. Concentration, anticipation  and balance between both feet positions are the keys to exhilaration.
