XL 1750 cm2 Front Wing
The front wing XL 1750 cm2 is designed for various practices : Downwind SUP Foil and Wing foil in medium to strong conditions, Surf and SUP Foil in small waves, and Wake Foil on a small wake. Our French hydrodynamic engineer worked hard to find the best possible wing profile. We developed a foil that is very easy and stable to use while having excellent speed and carving abilities.
The size of the front wing will determine your practice. To understand how hydrofoils work, we can compare the front wing of a foil with an airplane. An Airbus A380 (2000 cm2 wing) will have a lot of lift to fly the aircraft at low speed with a maximum load (many passengers), but it will have a lower speed and maniability. On the other hand, a Rafale will need more power at the start (big wave) but will go faster and be super reactive (1250 cm2 wing).
Practical advices :
The surface of the front wing, the wing profile, its thickness and outline have a particular importance on the foil’s performance. The larger the surface with thickness in the profile, the more tolerant and faster the surf foil will be and will lift, but the foil will saturate faster in speed. On the other hand, the smaller the wing, the faster and more manageable the foil, but the use is more technical for the beginner in small waves. For beginners it is advisable to choose a L 1500cm2 front wing and then, after progression, choose a larger or smaller wing to increase its range of use.
We recommend to choose the wing accordingly to your weight for foil surfing : for +95 kg people a 1750 cm2 front wing is perfect but for people around or less than 80 kgs a 1250 cm2 or a 1500 cm2 Front wing is better.
For the downwind, this XL 1750 cm2 Front Wing will be perfect for light paddlers or for medium paddlers in strong conditions.

The foil is not made to go looking for powerful waves that break quickly. It is a way to discover new spots, to go on relatively soft waves that do not break and that will allow you to fully exploit the swell train with your foil. Getting in line up with all surfers is totally inadvisable and really doesn’t make sense.
The practice of foiling can become dangerous for you and others if you do not respect certain common sense instructions. Poor control or use on an overcrowded spot can result in cuts or serious injuries.
It is therefore necessary to take all the precautions of use in surfing, sup, wing foil. In this practice, we should not overestimate ourselves.
Start in small conditions with soft waves (-70 cm) and especially do not go in conditions of hollow and powerful waves.
It is important to stay away from surfers, swimmers and obstacles during your sessions.
We recommend the use of a helmet, a protective jacket and a full neoprene suit.
SROKA declines all responsibility in the event of an accident involving a SROKA foil. The practice of foiling is the sole responsibility of the user.
