JP AUSTRALIA HYRDO FOIL ES 135
JUST LIKE FLYING!
Foil boarding is the latest and hottest trend in windsurfing. We developed two specific shapes for this new dimension of this great sport: HYDROFOIL 135
Developed by Werner Gnigler together with Sebastian Kornum and the rest of the JP team riders.
The 135 could be called an all-round Foilboard – it makes foiling easy and accessible for everyone who wants to experience the feeling of flying over water. At the same time, it offers racers a very efficient racing machine.
It’s shape suits all levels, from beginner to professional – from zero to hero. It covers a very wide wind range. And yes, you can also use it with a normal fin. It feels like a shorter and wider version of a Super Sport and is almost as fast.
Compared to our 155 the 135 has a slightly bigger range in higher winds as its nose stays a little lower when flying, so the board is therefore easier to control.
The board is much easier to use for foiling than normal Slalom or Freeride Boards as it offers a comfortable stance and enough leverage to handle the lift.
Once up on the foil the board provides a neutral platform so that you can fully concentrate on controlling the foil. The hull creates as little resistance in the air as possible, which is very important when you are flying.
The compact design (215 cm x 86 cm) has a wide tail and parallel outline. The even nose rocker combined with a soft tuck line in the front make for a smooth and forgiving entry once the nose comes down on the water. This is essential, as many beginners tend to nosedive. This special nose does not dig into the water but will lift you back up once you touch the water and you will keep flying.
The volume distribution is very even to give the 135 great balance when you are up in the air, and a good glide before the boards lifts out of the water.
The tail cut-outs are designed to avoid any drag as the board starts to fly.
The rail shape in the standing area is also different to standard slalom and freeride boards to cater for the more upright stance when foiling.
In high wind it is important that your board doesn’t get too affected by big gusts, therefore we use a very streamlined surface to minimize the lift created by the board shape.
The RS:FLIGHT AL is an exceptionally durable high-performance modular Aluminum/G10 Windfoil designed with emphasis on control, stability and early take-off. Perfect as a starting foil to experience your first flights, it also delivers plenty of speed and upwind performance for more advanced riders.
The Aluminum mast and perfectly blended fuselage offer the best structure for maximum strength and minimum drag.The G10 wings were specifically developed for hydrofoiling with an adjustable tail that offers lift triming options and a vertical stabiliser that provides additional balance.
RS FLIGHT FEATURES
Front wing span: 680mm
Tail wing span: 421mm
Base: Deep Tuttle
Construction: Aluminum / G10 All parts dismountable for compact packing
Delivers inverted thrust to balance the main wing and maintain easy control and stability. There is adjustability available by adding a washer on the front or back screw of the tail wing. Foil is perfectly trimmed for average weight sailor (75-80kg) with tail
in neutral position. Heavier sailors, especially in light winds or during learning process might prefer slightly more stabilizing force that down tilted rear wing provides. At the same time lighter sailors, especially in strong wind conditions might find a neutral position creates excessive lift and will reduce the differential angle between two wings by tilting the tail slightly up.
Optimised structure for best compromise between strength and minimum drag. Hollow construction to reduce weight combined with three vertical cross-ribs for maximum stiffness. Tempered, salt water corrosion resistant 6061-T6 aluminium.
Perfectly blended, wing to CNC machined fuselage connection and integrated wing saddle providing minimum drag. Volume and weight of the aluminium used in fuselage is reduced by eliminating the forward- protruding nose.
Specific profile developed for hydrofoiling. Constant lift provided in a wide wind range thanks to the angle of attack adjustment as weight shifts forward with speed increases. Extremely durable and easy to fix by sanding.
