Retail Price €1,490 / $1,650
|Board Type||Foil, SUP Foil|
Available from 5’4 to 6’10 in length, The Superfly is a stand up paddle foil board specially designed to perform well in waves. It can also be used with a wing and in downwind mode. Its outline and its volume make it possible to reduce the length considerably.
The lower deck allows for more stability and provides more control in flight and during maneuvers.
The bevels rail, nose rocker and tail lift are optimized for maximum angle cornering and forgiving steering errors.
The double concave on the front half of the hull facilitates the early take-off as well as the re-launch during the “touches”.
The hull is flat at the housings for a neutral position of the foil.
Construction / Technology
High-end full carbon construction.
Each board consists of an expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam roll, covered with carbon / epoxy lamination, with high density foam reinforcements.
The advantage of EPS compared to a polyurethane (PU) is that at equal weight, it’s significantly more resistant. Above all, it has a larger memory of shape (compared to almost none for PU construction).
It therefore holds better in case of shocks and avoids the delamination of the laminated skin.
Carbon stratification provides great strength and rigidity for less weight than fiberglass.
