Axis foils windfoil (alu/carbon) foil is an absolute winner. Here at Foilshop UK we’ve tested the product extensively in all types of conditions: from light to strong; flat water to wave. Ease of use but with plenty of high end facets for advanced windfoilers to unlock. (This set up can also be used for powered up wing foiling by experienced riders. Lighter foilers will get away with the 900mm wing in standard wing foiling conditions).
The carbon HA 900mm front wing is a higher aspect wing that no less takes flight early and ramps up to impressive speed. That said tentative windfoilers can back off slightly to give a more confidence inducing ride – it doesn’t have to be all high octane stuff.
As the description implies Axis have incorporated plenty of glide into the S-Series Glide 900mm windfoil wing which is great for foiling gybes, manoeuvrability and riding swell/surf. It just keeps going! Because of the quality engineering, the reduced torsional flex of the 90cm mast ensures an efficient ride, the mast remaining rigid as twist free as possible. The Axis S-Series fuselage and 90cm mast are tough as old boots and more than fit for purpose and one reason why Axis foils are so highly regarded.
Coupled with it’s 500mm rear stabiliser wing there’s plenty of composure, the anhedral shape giving a balanced ride that all windfoilers will appreciate. For those with pumping skills leverage is plenty for getting on foil in even the lightest of airs.
If riders want even lighter wind performance then upgrading (or adding) the larger S-Series 1000mm front wing is possible. Coming supplied with a Deep Tuttle or pedestal plate fitting Axis Foils’ S-Series Glide windfoil is ready to fit any style of windfoil foil board.
