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.
Race-ready and made to face the competitors. The V107 1000 is designed in collaboration with World Champion Luuc Van Opzeeland and is built to be the highest performing windsurf race foil. Every part of this foil is designed to reduce drag and produce the best possible hydrodynamic performance. Each detail is precisely tuned to maximize the highest ratio speed/angle while avoiding ventilation. Providing superior stability and control even at the highest speed.
A racing specific design, geometry, and construction. The Vento 107-1000 is all about the top average speed around the course on all angles of sail. Its stability will permit you to focus on speed and tactics while racing. The W1000 front wing, with its 1,100 cm² area, adds lightwind performance keeping full control in higher wind. This is advanced racing performance, low drag and exceptional upwind ability combined with a stable and precise ride. Comes with choice of mast and 400 tail

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.
