At Big Winds, our staff’s wind foiling started long before the foiling-dedicated boards below existed. And boy was that a steep learning curve. Not anymore. Foil boards like the JP Hydrofoil 135, Naish Hover 122, Slingshot Dialer and Starboard Foil 122 and Hydrofoil 147 fast track progression with unique bow designs and foot strap positions that all but eliminate porpoising perils. If you've ever thought a wind foiling board was unnecessary (after all, it rides above the water!), you wouldn't be wrong. But might we suggest a helmet or impact vest?
