Review 

The Takuma RS 5.1 is as the reviews say, with a truck load of forward drive and a really locked in feel. My front hand is usually at the back of the handle so don't really use the projected part further forward except when I flag from it, and it's really nice for that with the pistol grip. It's the most intuitive of the three sizes, and easy to go really fast!

The Takuma RS 4.3 is a bit more neutral, still hold the back of the front handle, still with a lot of drive but less locked in which is nice for freestyle, and this is my favourite size for that.

The Takuma RS 3.5 is more nuanced in handling in that it's easy to use it without proper air flow over it / slightly stalled, which can be useful when really overpowered.

To really access the full power you need to let the back hand out for a second or two, the airflow then attaches properly, the power really comes on, and you can pull the back hand in again and use that forward drive to go fast. I hold the middle of the front handle on the 3.5 which took a while to figure out. Holding the back of the front handle made the wing really unstable and it bucked all over the place. I had a great wave session with this one a few weeks ago.

IN REVIEW SUMMARY - The Takuma RS wings  all flag out well, their weight is fine, manoeuvrability is good, the flagging handle is nice and they jump well so all in all happy with them. Not missing the boom really now either, except doing aerial rotations where not needing to think where hands need to go is a bit helpful, but not a big deal.

NEW 2022 GO Foils are In!

Froth on ...

The new Go foil line has arrived and been received very very well.

The RS range is acclaimed by those who want to push their speed and carving limits.

The GTs are more accessible and very playful with less wingspan, and the EZs are great for anyone who wants to fly early and well while maintaining great carving.

here are some pictures for some comparisons of the old range

Axis rear wings 2022

 

All new AXIS Progressive Rear Wings – it’s all about the turn.

We obsess over rear wings, almost to the point that it’s a problem. We’ve tried to get professional help but the prototypes just keep getting churned out by our design team on a weekly basis, and we can’t help but test, analyse, pontificate, redesign – and on and on it goes.You may be thinking – why do rear wings matter? Aren’t they just stabilisers to balance the front wing? Well that’s what many thought too – in the very early days. We know that your rear wing can change your life. Okay that’s not quite true, but it will significantly affect the ride characteristics of your whole foil set up.

Progressive   475/68, 450/67, 425/66, 400/65, 375/64, 350/63
You notice the difference in your first carve or gybe.

 

We got super hooked on the locked in, fast, stable feel of the Speed  380/60 and 420/60 rear wings, and still are for flat water blasting and racing for winging and big, fast waves for foil surfing. But we had a feeling we still had more to give our riders in the turning department. After several iterations and tweaks, the new Progressive 350/63, 375/64, 400/65 and 425/66 rears have delivered it in spades. 

Medium aspect, with a thin foil section and subtle turned down tips, this new design rolls into the turn beautifully, feels fluid and loose, and also grips through the carve and transitions back out the other side with predictable control and positive acceleration. Even intermediate foilers will notice the difference straight away. It’s super well behaved in rough winging conditions (just set and forget) and with the thin foil section it’s still rewardingly quick. The Progressive rear wings will feel like a natural extension of your feet. 

Riders are finding the Progressive rears pair beautifully with our ART high aspect foils in particular, and they’ll work very well with any foil for riders looking to improve their turns and carves. As always, size your Progressive rear wing to your experience and front wing size.  (larger sizes for less experienced riders and larger front wing pairings)

 

Progressive 425/66, 400/65, 375/64, 350/63 rear wings are available NOW.
Progressive 475/68, 450/67,  rear wings are available end of November.

We can’t wait to see you lay it over and let rip!

Go Foil New wings

GOFOIL NEWS
New Front Wings
We have incorporated “Steps” into the new 3 lines of front wings we have coming out late this fall.
The Steps are a new concept that helps with the same benefits of the winglets but on steroids! They resist overfilling more than the winglets, help steady the ride in the up and down movements (pitch control) , and also turn better. The 3 new lines of front wings will be named in reference to their projected Square Centimeters (cm2) for less confusion when comparing to other foil brands.

Now let’s get into the 3 new lines:

The EZ foil line is what the name implies, they are easy to ride.
The EZ foil line rides at a more constant speed especially when turning so they will not accelerate as much and they will keep a steady pace. This makes it easier to do transitions when winging and/or help you stay in the pocket when prone surfing and not accelerate away from the wave.
The EZ foils are fairly thin but have a slightly slower draft forward type of foil section . This type of Foil design helps you control your speed a little bit easier than our faster models.
What we have noticed with the EZ foils is that you can handle a bigger size wing than what the square centimeters lead you to believe. For instance the EZ 1600 sound like a huge wing but you can handle it pretty easily still in a lot of wind!

The GT Foil line
The “GT” stands for “Go To” . These are the same outlines and sizes as our very popular NL series.
The GT’s have similar traits to the NL’s but with many upgrades in performance .
First thing you will notice is that they are easier to control the pitch or up and down movement. This helps you to go fast with more confidence over the NL.
Second thing is that they turn better.
Third thing is that they resist overfilling better!  You can get the wing tips out of the water and recover more easily and you might have seen many of the riders turning with the tips out in recent testing.
The 4th thing they do better than an NL is the pumping. The GT’s pump much better than the NL’s and get up on foil slightly easier and quicker.  This gives the GT a better low-end per size than the NL’s. What we have noticed is that you can now use a smaller wing to get the same amount of low end. For instance Dave Kalama uses the GT 1250 downwind paddling more than he used to use the NL160.
Both the GT1250 and NL160 are the same size and outline.
He says the GT1250 now almost replaces the need for his NL190 downwind, which is 1400 cm2.

The RS Line
The “RS” stands for Race Series.
These are faster wings and even faster than the GT’s.
These wings are great for racing when Downwind Paddling or Winging. They are very Fast, Turn, and Pump very well too. They are slightly thinner than the GT’s which gives them the extra speed.
They also cross over to Waves with SUP and Prone riders.  The RS1000 now is a favorite for Kaden Pritchard and Max Moquin on their prone boards both surfing and prone downwind. They used it Dock starting as well.
Dave Kalama really likes the RS1150 for Downwind Paddling on the good days over here on Maui. He was clocked one day averaging 18.4 mph or 29.7 KPH for a nautical mile (1.85 km) !!
The smaller sizes RS 500 and 650 are what Alex rides when he is winging and trying to go over 30 + mph . He also uses these when racing downwind on the Wing.

 

BENEFITS OF THE NEW “STEPS”

The Steps give the hydrofoil a more positive  feeling through the water which leads to better  pitch control. “Pitch control“ means that you  have better control with the up and down  movement of the hydrofoil through the water.  Better pitch control helps you to go faster with  more confidence. 

The steps create less drag by disrupting the  Wing Vortices. 

The angled Steps help with being able to  initiate turns and redirect the hydrofoil. This  means you can turn easier and sharper! 

The Steps help to stop overfoiling. This is  accomplished by disrupting air travel across  the wing surface when you get close to the  surface of the water. The step helps to keep  the air from traveling straight across the wing  surface by disrupting the easy flow of air  across the wing by having an abrupt contour  change. You will notice that you can get  the wingtips out of the water on turns and  reconnect with the water flow more easily than  other wings. Twist in wing tips also can help  with this problem but the “Steps” are like Twist  or Winglets on steroids!

WINDWINGS GOFOIL
GO-this is the standard wing elliptical outline, meant for the everyday rider.  The elliptical style is easier to luff so they work great for higher wind conditions. Powerful with control, good all around wing.
Will come in 2.2, 2.7, 3.5, 4.5 for the Eliptical and 4.5, 5.5 and 6.5  for the Square Model.
 
GO S (S=squared)-this is a squared tip wing. Fantastic for pumping up to a foiling position in lighter winds. Lighter wind wing, tips make it easy to pump up to a foil, less drag from the tips, easy to flip and handle in the water when not foiling. (this is important compared to other wings while balancing on your board and try to flip the wing to correct postion)
Will come in  4.5, 5.5, 6.5.
The first thing you will notice about the Go Foil wings is that they have a solid, stiffer feeling.  These wings have large leading edges and middle struts which help maintain the shape of the wings and give you positive stiff feed back.
Features:
• Twin windows
• Mulitple handles plus two diaganal handles and perpindicular handle at the front of the middle strut
• Stiff leading edge
• Two valve system, one valve on leading edge one on the center strut
• Wrist leash
• Belt comes with the wings that you can double as a waist leash by attaching to your Wrist leash

Axis 999 review


AXIS ART 999 review

A newly released wing from Axis foils has got the foil world frothing once again .........

The AXIS Research Team ART 999 looks and feels like nothing else.
On the water this wing blows your mind! The ART999 sits at the forefront of wing design and development, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible for a foil. The incredible speed and glide of this wing, coupled with effortless pump and efficiency, enables you to ride the smallest lump way further outside the surf zone than ever before. What separates this wing from the pack is how well it turns, rolling effortlessly between turns comparable to a surf wing. Despite these high-performance features of the AXIS ART999, it is a surprisingly user friendly wing. The stall speed is incomparably low, giving even advanced beginner to intermediate riders an accessible platform for learning to pump and rapid progression.

Thanks to Dominic for the review

Hello Everyone ,
Hoping you may find these videos informative.
To be honest if spending 6k plus on a e-foil can be avoided ...this is the next best option.
Albeit a product not designed for speed cruising the flat water of you local coastline, more an aid to facilitate easier hydofoiling progression and giving a helping hand in a range of conditions be it in waves or wind.
Clip the remote onto a paddle or a wind wing .
We will have stock soon
