What size wing foil board should I choose?
You have to choose it according to your level, your size and your practice. 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 over), experienced riders can choose the 5’2 (77L) and 4’8 (68L) for freestyle and versatile performance, or go down to the Fast Flyer (38L)
The 6′ and 6’4 (144 and 155L) inflatable boards are ideal for beginners. Those who want a high performance board to take with them on their travels should look at the 5’3 (120L).

How to choose a wing foil board?
You have to choose a board adapted to your size and your level. Especially when you are a beginner, you should not overestimate yourself at the risk of not being able to progress. You should not go below the Sky Rider 5’5 and its 90L to start. The Sky Rider 5’8 (105L), 6’3 (120L) and the Air 6′ and 6’4 inflatable models will be perfect for beginners of most sizes, from 70Kg and up. Another criterion in choosing a board is the quality of the construction and materials. The quality of the construction determines whether or not your board will last more than one season and whether it will perform well. We build our boards in full sandwich PVC carbon or fiberglass, it’s the best there is. Check out our video on how to build a wingfoil board here.
