Welcome to the fastest growing sector of the kitesurfing and Surfing market. A lot of kiters who have mastered the twin tip or surfboard and looking for a new challenge and want the ultimate feeling of floating and gliding over the water....this it it!
Already a surfer ? Want to ride normally unridable surf, small or mushy it doesn't matter! on the foil you can glide, ride and carve ocean swells away from crowded surf breaks.
The great thing about riding the Hydrofoil is its massive wind range, a 10m kite will get you up riding in 12knots or less, and keep riding well into 20 knots....
