Wingsurfing & Foil Boards

The Wingfoil will free you from constraints, both on land and at sea. This new water sports will offer you sensations of freedom that are unique in the world of sailing, unknown to the general public and until now reserved for state-of-the-art boats with huge budgets such as those used in the Vendée Globe. It’s now accessible with a simple wing board adapted to foiling!

Wingfoiling is one of the latest board sports. The system of a wing carried by the arms was tested in 1984 on windsurfers. This technique did not provide any advantage over the traditional board, so the practice fell into oblivion, until the Hawaiian waterman, Kai Lenny, brought it up to date by using it on his SUP Foil board, then on his wing foil board.

Wingsurfing is the “5th element” of all board sports: a mix of Kitesurfing, Surf foil, Windsurfing and Stand-Up Paddle.

The combination of elements of each of these activities has created a new sport: Wing Foiling. What does it involve? Positioned on a small wingfoil board (or SUPfoil, or Surf foiling) connected to a foil underwater, the rider holds a wing in his hand (the Wing), which generates power with the wind grip. This “underwater aircraft” is represented by two fins (front and rear) parallel to the board and connected by a mast. By gaining speed with the kite, the rider moves forward on the surface of the water and, from a certain speed, the hydrofoil generates a lifting force. This force will sustain the rider, while making the board take off from the water. To find out more about how it works, we invite you to go to this article, in the News & Tutorials section.

The Wingfoil allows you to go upwind, surf the waves or the wind swell. This way, you can get rid of having waves to surf (like in SurfFoil). Wingsurfing will multiply the number of sessions and sensations depending on the conditions. You will no longer need to practice on a surf spot, because all bodies of water become exploitable (especially inland bodies of water such as lakes, rivers, etc.).

FAQ

It is a device that often has the shape of an airplane. It is placed in the water, on the hull of a boat, to allow it to rise above the water thanks to the lift that the foil generates. The foil works like an underwater airplane wing and provides incredible gliding sensations. It was Tabarly who popularized the concept in the 80s. It can now be found in all board sports.

You can do everything with a foil, from offshore racing with the Vendée Globe for example to light sailing. All traditional board sports have turned to foiling in recent years. You can practice surf foil, sup foil, windsurf foil, kite foil, wake foil… Or wing foil, a unique mix of these sports and increasingly popular.

  • Activities such as SUP, kitesurfing, windsurfing and surfing require you to master the support before taking up foiling. The best thing to do is to start with foiling derived from your original sport (if you come from surfing, start with surf foil). Wing foil remains accessible without water sports experience, even if it is easier to progress quickly if you have prior knowledge.

Sroka foils consist of several elements. We have the plate that connects the board to the foil. Then, the mast that fits into the turntable. At the end of the mast is what is called the plane; a front wing and stabilizer that are connected by a fuselage. On the S-Foil, the frame, mast and fuselage are made of aluminium while the front wing and stabilizer are made of carbon. The Kite Foil offers an all-carbon option.

The S-Foil is supplied with its protective case, protective covers for fins, gel tef and screws.

Yes. Like all the products on the site, Sroka foils are covered by a two-year warranty!

It usually takes one business day to prepare your order and then one to three business days for delivery.

There are several ways to adjust your foil to increase or decrease lift. You can change the position of the foil in the US rails. The further forward it is, the more lift you gain. You can also adjust the angle of incidence of the stabilizer (it’s easier than adjusting the angle of the front wing or the entire foil) with adjustment shims. The more you increase the angle at the back, the more glide you gain.

We have a dedicated article on how foils work here.

To start, it’s best to choose a neutral setting in the double US rail, well in the middle. With experience, you can play with the settings and increase the lift by moving the foil forward in the case. We also increase the maneuverability of the foil by moving it forward in the case, which can be useful when surfing.

It should be chosen according to its level, size and practice. For surf foil, we offer a 4’6 board that is easy to paddle. For the SUP Foil, we will go for boards between 5’8 and 7’8 with a minimum volume of 100L to start standing up. For wing foil, anything is possible. If you prefer to start with boards like the Sky Rider 5’5 (90L, for 70Kg and under), 5’8 (105L for 70 to 80Kg) and 6’3 (for 80Kg and more), experienced riders can choose the 5’2 (77L) and 4’8 (68L) for freestyle and a versatile and high-performance practice, or go down to the Fast Flyer (38L).

Those who want to kitesurf, dock start and wakefoil will find what they are looking for with the convertible Pocket Board (17L). Finally, windfoil boards require volume and width, such as the 6’3 or 7’8 depending on the size. Feel free to check out our detailed guides to choosing your foil boards.

If you want to be even more, there are the Giant XL and XXL paddles that can accommodate between 4 and 8 people. On the other hand, a paddle board with a size of 10′ is designed for one person only.

If you don’t know which paddle to choose, we explain everything HERE.

It all depends on the discipline and its size. In general, don’t overestimate yourself. Foil requires a new learning curve even if it’s worth it. For wing foil and SUP foil, we choose front wings between 1500 and 2000cm2. For surf foil and wake foil, more like between 1200 and 1500. The Wind and the kite foil, we will choose foils between 800 and 1250cm2.

As a first step, use the gel provided to grease your screws and connections. There’s no need to refill as long as there’s left. Don’t put too much at the risk of creating a deposit at the bottom of the threads. Rinse your foil with clean water after an outing and disassemble it before storing it in the protective covers provided. Be careful not to get sand in the threads. If you have a full carbon foil, you don’t need to disassemble it every time, oxidation takes place between the aluminum and carbon parts.
