Hydrofoils, also known as foiling, are rapidly redefining what we consider to be a ride-able wave. Like never before, you can ride a wave with the lightest of winds. You can prone foil the swells, kite foil, wing foil and tow foil big waves, whatever your dream is we can help this come true.

Hydrofoil boards have a hydrofoil attached to the bottom of the board that moves below the surface of the water. This design lifts the board out and off the water to allow the rider to feel a sensational glide with ultimate speed.

Hydrofoil has many disciplines.
