Wingfoil Board Sky Rider 4’8 and 5’2

We have developed this range of small foil boards to allow you to continue to progress and improve yourself. Until now, we offered boards with a volume beyond 90 L. But with the general level of riders progressing, we meet your expectations with shorter boards, perfect for jumping, to go faster, to have more maneuverability in the waves or freestyle. The Sky Rider 4’8 and 5’2 were created in this logic.

Our product has been designed to last. We have found that too often, boards have problems with case fragility, delimitation and bridge sinking when riders require a minimum of performance from their foil board. That’s why we’ve stayed true to our philosophy: to create sustainable, high-performance products while eliminating 99.9% of after-sales service. Out of the question that your board breaks after 15 sessions or a few jumps.

The Sky Rider 4’8 or 5’2 wingfoil board is perfect for having fun in freestyle, race or waves. With a good board width, stability is at the rendezvous especially at the start. These super versatile boards are intended for intermediate and experienced riders to take it to the next level.

They talk about us : tests and opinions of the 4'8 and 5'2 Sky Rider boards

This board has been tested and approved by Foiling Magazine and Wingsurferjournal!

« It is the perfect flat water board for freeride, racing and entry freestyle »  ( Foiling magazine)

« The Sroka brand clearly shows its will to offer products with a very good manufacturing quality. And we really liked this board, for its shape and solid feel, even after passing through our hands, it didn’t seem to move. There are a lot of competing boards in this range for the advanced mid-size sailor and this Sky Rider deserves to be among the best of them.»     (

The best possible construction for your wingfoil boards

We don’t build disposable products. We developed this board almost a year ago. We could have released it immediately, but in that time we have tested the strength and durability of this construction by putting it through everything our testers could throw at it.

Our Sky Rider 4’8 and 5’2 are among the only ones on the market that are made entirely of a full sandwich of PVC carbon (or full sandwich of PVC fibreglass, as you wish). This case contains a dense polystyrene block. Also, all potential weak points have been reinforced as much as possible with reinforcements. From the strap inserts to the leash plug to the carrying handle, all these connections are glued into a PVC block and reinforced for maximum durability.

The two US rails are not just glued to the surface like most brands, but in a large PVC block that runs through the entire board. This construction is not only a guarantee of durability, it is a prerequisite for performance. In contrast to lesser constructions, you get the full feel of the foil thanks to the impressive overall rigidity.

This construction has a direct influence on the longevity of your material. Saving natural resources through the production of durable materials is becoming increasingly important.

Please note that unlike other Sky Rider boards, these boards are currently produced in China. To make the difference, the French boards have a made in France logo on the deck and a premium glossy finish. To find our made in France boards, click here. We also explain how our boards are built in an article.

A high performance shape

The relatively wide and short outline combined with a bulbous front end (only on the 4’8) allows for a very accessible kneeling start despite the low volume of the board. Once in the air, this outline allows for ultra-efficient pumping and easy safe landings. This super complete and versatile shape is combined with a slightly more advanced centerline, offering exceptional maneuverability in the waves.

The clean cut out of the bottom is great for surfing and landing jumps. It also facilitates the flying start by reducing the volume at the back to optimize your pumping and avoid dragging too much at the start.

The double concave at the front of the hull makes it easier to start and land jumps. With a moderate rocker, this hull allows you to take off immediately in all conditions, and to recover easily when you hit the water. The bavels on the rails also allow for smooth recoveries when the rail bites the water. On the deck side, the deck is also hollowed out to lower the centre of gravity on the water and optimize the control of the board by increasing its reactivity.


Your Sky Rider board’s straps inserts are reinforced and offer multiple positioning options (5 positions per insert), so you can easily adapt to any foil configuration.

The lengthwise grooved pads offer maximum grip, even in strapless conditions. By adding the kickpad at the back, you will be perfectly connected to the wave when surfing. Its thickness makes it comfortable underfoot when sailing or taking off on your knees, and the coloured markings allow you to find your bearings on the deck immediately.

At the Us rails, you will find a marking of the box which allows precise positioning of the foil on the rails and custom adjustments. This is especially useful if you are using footstraps. There is also a wide, deep and comfortable carrying handle. Finally, the decompression valve is automatic: no more risk of forgetting to open or close it depending on the circumstances!

Your Sky Rider has been designed by wing enthusiasts, with all the essential equipment for a successful practice. Built with materials and assembly of


This year we are offering a 99% recyclable, reusable and more efficient packaging. Thanks to our honeycomb technology, your board is perfectly protected during transport. Best of all, we’ve managed to do better with less. All these materials that reduce our environmental impact on our spots form a reusable product. You can fold the honeycombs into a thin strip for easy storage. If you need to go on a trip, just unfold it and you’ve got a high-quality, incredibly light and strong package.
