Thinking of riding some waves of consequence? These three boards will get you out and into whatever size waves you’d like to challenge yourself with. Semi-gun and gun outlines/rockers taken from tried and true big wave surfboard designs have been applied to these stand up designs. Flat bottom going to “V” in the tail. These are the boards Keali’i Mamala uses in XXL waves and has been riding these PRODUCTION boards at Jaws, Mavericks and Nazare.
4+1 fin box set up.
Comes with quad fin set – Front 4 3/4″ Back 4″.
This board has the classic 60’s rocker which is a lower, straighter entry rocker that allows the nose to plane up rather than getting sucked down and pearling. A smooth rocker curve going into a pronounced tail kick which holds the tail down in the wave, coupled with the 50/50 rails which also holds the board in the face of the wave to allow sustained nose rides. The outline is a classic 60’s style parallel railed template with some hips in the tail for those smooth rolling turns and cutbacks. The board comes in a flat bottom nose for more speedy nose rides or a concave nose for “lifting” nose rides.
Single fin box set up.
Comes with John’s 11″ B&B fin.
The AXIS Foils S-Series Complete Surf Foils are by far the best performer on the market today. The engineering, the stiffness on each connection point and the strength of the design, outperforms any other surf/sup/downwind/pump/wake/wind/kite foil on the market.
The S-Series front wings, rear wings and components are interchangeable. You can keep on adding different size masts, front wings, rear wings or fuselages as your style and skill level evolve. The modularity of the design, stiffness of each component and overall engineering make the AXIS S-Series the ultimate foil for any style of riding.
The price is for the foil pictured with a 920 all around front wing and aluminum mast. Higher aspect wings are available as well as carbon masts.
The AXIS Foils S-Series package includes the following:
With exceptional glide, speed control and maneuverability, the PROFOIL foil has been designed to be the most efficient downwind foil on the market!
Designed by Foil Master Laurent BORGNA in New Caledonia, LOL FOILS are a game-changing evolution in the foiling world !
Amazingly easy to operate and super stable, the LOL FOIL is the ultimate performance and user-friendly hydrofoil available.
This foil is made for very fast take-offs and the best gliding flight you'll find. Adding winglets allow the wings to be more efficient at creating lift and reducing drag.
The LOL comes in three sizes with in either full carbon or aluminum/carbon where the mast and fuselage are aluminum and the wings carbon:

For years, the RPM was fine-tuned to load, pop and go slack in the air before re-engaging. We had the tuning down to a science, and it helped give multiple freestyle world champions their gold medals. Our mission with the 2019 RPM was to change that - not to eliminate anything - but to shift the kite’s tuning to where we see the sport shifting.
FROM THE FIRST PROTOTYPES TO THE FINAL PRODUCTION MODEL, DEVELOPING THE A-WING HAS BEEN A TOTAL BLAST!
Each step of the development process we were searching for the ideal balance between power and feel while reducing leading edge flex to a minimum.
The A Wing is powerful! This is primarily because the aerofoil section has been carefully developed so meter for meter the A-Wing is one of the most powerful wings on the market.
The solid airframe of the A-Wing is the second ingredient to power and performance.
We refined the A-Wing design to be well balanced in a wide range of conditions. It is strong in terms of construction and durability but as light as possible in design for that perfect balance.
The A-Wing comes complete with Carry Bag, Wrist Leash, Repair kit, Manual and in three optimized sizes, 3.5m 4.5m and 5.5m.
ENSIS Wings are for surfers who want to push boundaries in wing surfing. Your own and that of physics.
ENSIS Wings perform exactly the same in minimum winds and storms: with perfect flight stability, lots of power and maximum propulsion.
ENSIS Wings are simply fun - whether on the SUP board or with the hydrofoil. Thanks to their easy handling, even during assembly.
You will get on the water faster, have longer fun, learn easier and do better wingsurfing.
The WASP is a Kite Wing that crosses easily from water, land or snow. It offers easy power for anything that rolls, slides, planes or glides. Use it with your Skateboard, Mountain Board, Skis, Snowboard, SUP, Windsurf or Foil board. Simple, quick and a whole load of fun!
We concentrated on making the WASP easy to fly and handle. The large size Leading Edge creates stability and reduces flex, it also helps develop power at low speeds to get you moving sooner. The enlarged strut provides direct angle of attack control, as flex is minimal offering a solid and controlled feeling.
We kept the aspect ratio low to have a wing that has grunt and to keep the tips from catching the water. The wing tips have a layer of scuff protection for riding on snow or land, although it is best to keep the wing off the ground!
Multiple Power Handles on the Leading Edge and Strut have been positioned to cover many options, providing maximum control and comfort while riding. The streamline De-Power Handle at the front of the Leading Edge completely de-powers the wing for total control when carving downwind in swell or when carrying the wing.
On the water the WASP has been developed riding SUP, Windsurf and Foil boards. The simple nature of the wing makes it suitable for riding any board that has enough volume to support your weight on the water. In strong wind conditions and with developed skills it is also possible to ride with smaller volume hydrofoil boards.
On the land or snow minimal wind is required to harness the natural energy to enjoy a different feeling of propulsion.
Wingsurfing has exploded as a discipline over the last year and Slingshot has been taking notes. The all new SlingWing V2 has an ultra-light weight construction; half the weight of the V1 original. A light-weight build provides for effortless wrist control and oscillation cancellation while luffing the wing and leaving the power behind you. Beginners will benefit from reduced arm fatigue in light air conditions, while advanced riders will find it dramatically easier to get the wing flying for deep water starts on tiny boards.
Other features include 5 soft, comfortable handles which help you get just the right angle for that perfect, endless ride. A Cambered Dihedral shape gives you stability and lets you harmonize the wind, body and board into speed and control. Lastly, the SlingWing V2 is made of extra tough D4 canopy material that is matched with double leading-edge bladder seams allowing for higher PSI inflation and more added tension across the wing. That means NO FLAPPING.
The attention to detail extends past the wing itself. At Slingshot we understand how fun it is to take the SlingWing into the waves, and that getting rinsed is part of the game.
An incredible new way to fly and experience new feelings on the water, once you try it, you’ll be addicted.
The all-new Swing from F-ONE, a light, compact and totally safe handheld kite you can launch anywhere. Using our extensive kite design techniques, we have created the Swing to be stable, fun to use, and most importantly, easy to learn.
There are no lines to get tangled, no danger of getting dragged, and there is genuinely 100% depower, get ready for a totally new way to enjoy the wind.
Takuma makes it a point of always being one step ahead to provide you with innovative, high performing products allowing you to ride even more intensely.
In 2019 Takuma & Wing Ride, under the spotlight, launched the Wing Ride I. The past few months were full of adjustment and incredible discoveries of new performance. We are now proud to present you the Wing Ride III. This new Wing Ride is the most balanced model on the market.
The Wing Ride model III will take you from your first wing riding moments to most advanced rides, like wave riding, downwinding, jumping, speeding and more, thanks to its amazing stability and forward drive. Our design process has been focused on stability and ease of use, paired with a stiffness allowing for comfortable and efficient rides.
The arc had been specifically designed for improved efficiency. Flat enough to maximize power, and flaring out enough to let the air flow through the whole wing and let you accelerate, it makes you go upwind easily and enhances the forward drive at the start.
The canopy is naturally tensioned for a perfect profile definition at all times. This creates a very direct response to input, with no flutter when sheeting out and an unmatched stability when neutrally flown, like when riding a wave for example.
Our unique long reinforced handles are designed to greatly improve your control of the wing while also letting you easily move your hands back and forth without having to let go of a handle to grasp the next one over.
Your Wing Ride III will live a lot: reinforcement on all leading edge seams and kevlar protection on ears (aramid) protect the Wing from friction and most practice related hazards for better long life sustainability.
A special attention has been paid to making this Wing Ride as light as possible by only incorporating needed reinforcements, selected after hours of testing in all conditions. Wings of 2,6m to 4m come with 2 riding handles and 1 leading edge. Sizes 5 and 6 come with 3 riding handles and 1 leading edge.
The leading edge diameter has been totally reworked with a whole new taper. It increases in the center to give a stiffer platform, allowing for more efficient pumping, better support in jumps, and amazing low end power. The diameter decreases closer to the wing tips, letting the area twist slightly to adjust to the airflow and provide the most efficiency and forward drive ever on a wing. You’ll appreciate the easy deflation of the strut, thanks to our double leading edge to strut connection and its big diameter.
Takuma introduces the new Kujira foil, inspired by humpback whales.
Kujira is Japanese for whale. Takuma has some japanese roots, not only with the name of the brand, part of R&D is actually located in Japan. There is an element of biomimicry in the innovation and engineering process on the Kujira foil, as it is fully inspired by humpback whales. So after two years of analysis, research and tests, Takuma are finally ready and excited to release our foil evolution : the Kujira line.
The Kujira foil was designed by Laurent Borgna, well known for having already shaken things up in the foiling world with his work on the LOL Profoil range, and Cyril Coste, Takuma founder. It is inspired by the pectoral fin of humpback whales, who are known for their agility, power and efficiency.
The efficiency of humpback whales is due, amongst other things, to their pectoral fins. The mechanics of it is basically to create lift by generating swirls. This also creates velocity while maintaining control, which is specific to this type of whale. This is what Takuma wanted to implement into this foil, and managed to do it by reproducing and adding whale-like bumps to the design. After a number of prototypes, modifications and adjustments of the shape and profile of the bumps, computer simulations, and hours of testing in all conditions, there was a clear, big improvement in terms of glide, lift and comfort in our foils.
The signature LOL upturned winglets are also found on the Kujira. It is really the same concept as in aeronautics: it feels more comfortable and reassuring to navigate, and it saves on kerosene. Using winglets on a hydrofoil will make it more efficient in terms of glide, lift and will give extra comfort while foiling.
You can immediately feel the benefits of the Kujira foil, even non professional foilers.
The Kujira is a very well rounded foils in surf and wing foiling, but it’s also used for lighter and more advanced foil in downwind.
The Kujira comes in 3 sizes 980, 1210 and 1440. The 980 and 1210 come with a 220 tail. The 1440 comes with a 240 tail. The complete foil package includes a full carbon fuselage and 75cm mast. Prices start at $1,722 for the 980 package.
