The Flying V is Jimmy’s latest foil SUP. Featuring max volume and blocky rails for maximum stability and paddling, the Flying V allows the rider to ride a much shorter board than usual for the ultimate in foiling performance. The beveled chine rails provide easy lift-off and touch-down, and the tail lift keeps the tail clear when pumping.
These short lengths allow for much better performance, maneuverability, and glide once on foil and the extra width through the full outline of the board, especially the tail, gives you incredible stability, paddling and tracking for these short boards.
The rocker line was also designed with stability, tracking, and paddle speed in mind but also to not “stick” in the nose when coming down from the foil. The tail rocker is also very important in giving you that initial “pop” and water release to effortlessly get up on foil. We were very lucky to work with Alex Aguera from Go Foil who helped us with the testing/development of these boards and gave us expert knowledge on optimum Tuttle box placement as well as ideal stance and foot placement.
Generally a lighter board will allow you to glide longer on foil which makes our Signature Sandwich constructions the perfect match for these boards to keep them very light weight while giving maximum strength and reinforcement for the Tuttle box. The deck pad has a center line as well as two horizontal lines for riders to get an accurate and quick visual reference for foot placement for riding without straps. Board has 5 different insert options for foot strap location and comes with foot straps.
The boards feature both a Tuttle box and a plate attachment for maximum flexibility.
