Our foil ranges

Wakefoil is a water sport that consists of adding a foil to a wakesurfing board. The foil is like an underwater plane. The speed of movement generates lift and allows the practitioner to fly. Wakefoil is ideal for getting into  foiling, but it still takes some learning time to master the technique and become a real foiler.

The wakefoil is an extension of a wakesurf board with the addition of a foil. Unlike classic wakeboarding, which can be done towed by a cable such as a ski lift or by a boat, it is preferable to launch as a wakefoil rather than behind a boat. However, there are some ski lifts that allow you to do wake foil initiations.  The advantage of the boat is to keep a constant speed and a straight trajectory, which is not the case on the ski lift. You will therefore be able to focus solely on your sensations and the control of your foil.

Wakefoil brings a new dimension to foiling. It allows you to surf just about anywhere a wave or uplift can occur in the water, such as a wave from a boat, ferry, or jet ski. Although there is a bit of a learning curve, wakefoil doesn’t require a lot of speed once mastered. We fly around 10-12 km/h. Skilled wakefoilers can even continue riding long after they’ve left the wake by pumping on the board and taking turns. Wakefoil has a lot of advantages:  you don’t need to have big weather conditions: a body of water and a small boat. Different types of foils can be used depending on your practice. Foils with a lot of manoeuvrability (with little aspect ratio) Foils with a lot of aspect ratio to fly for a long time with less effort. By changing only the front fin of the foil, you can adapt the foil to your needs and configurations of the body of water or boat.

Wake foil is a water activity that consists of gliding on the water using a board equipped with a foil and a boat, a jet-ski or even pulled by a person (yes yes it works). The foil creates lift that lifts the board out of the water, providing a smooth and quiet gliding experience.

We also talk about wake foil to express the practice of surfing foil on the wave of a boat. You’d have to use the term “wake surf foil” to be accurate. On our website, we mainly talk about wake surf foil. Here is a demonstration of wake surf foil in Annecy with the Pocket foilboard and the S-foil 1190 Lift.

To start wake foiling, it is advisable to have some knowledge of wakeboarding. You need to be confident and able to control and direction the board. Then you can equip your board with a foil specifically designed for wake foiling. Choose a flat body of water to start, and agree with the boat’s pilot to have a stable speed, about 10 / 15 km/h to start. Start by practicing small take-offs: glide slowly across the water and when you reach enough speed, push on your legs to lift the board out of the water. Keep your knees slightly bent and keep your eyes fixed on the horizon to maintain your balance. Then, familiarize yourself with the sensations of flight and persevere until you master your balance.

To do wake surf foil, use a shorter rudder or move closer to the boat by going up with the strength of your arms. Place yourself in the trough of the wave and find the best position to surf the wave of the boat.

The operation of the wake foil is based on the principle of lift. The foil is composed of a vertical mast and a horizontal wing. As the board glides across the water, the foil creates lift that lifts the board out of the water. As the speed increases, the lift increases and the more the board is lifted. A foil is often compared to an airplane, which flies in water instead of in air.

Yes, you will be able to wake foil with most SROKA foils. We design our foils in such a way that they can be used perfectly in 3 different disciplines, so that we don’t have to buy a fin for every type of sport. Be careful, however, with kites such as the 950 HA or Classic and 1190 HA Speed which will be too fast for small boat waves. Everything else in the range will be compatible with wakefoil.

The 80 mast is the most versatile.

The 62cm fuselage is the perfect compromise for maneuverability but if you are new to foiling, take the 68cm fuselage (standard) to sail in complete stability. The ultra-short 56cm fuselage will appeal to riders who want maximum maneuverability and pumping efficiency. All fuselages here.

You don’t need a special wake boat to wakefoil. If you want to do wake surf foil, a simple semi-rigid that produces waves of 30 to 70 cm will be sufficient, as long as you have a suitable foil.

To start wake foiling, choose a foil that carries enough for your size. If you want to wake surf foil on the wave of the boat, we recommend our S-foil High Aspect 1190 Lift (85kg < size) or 1350 Lift (85kg size > ). These fins will allow you to glide on the waves of boats endlessly, and will be perfect in other sports such as wing foil, surf foil or dockstart.

A SROKA foil for wake foil costs between 900 and 1050 euros on average. An adapted board like the Pocket Foilboard 2023 costs €799 excluding promotions.

Like all foiling sports, wake foil can be dangerous if you don’t take precautions. Wear a helmet and impact vest to protect yourself as much as possible.

We recommend that you equip yourself with a protective helmet and an impact vest.
