The Wingfoil range features very short lengths with limited swing weight to make them ultra easy to fly and turn. Extremely versatile machines which have a diverse array of uses which all incorporate new bottom shapes which enhance lift with minimal drag undercarriages that alow quick release up onto the foil and minimal drag when it touches down.
1. As a SUP Foil board:
Excellent stubby shape with concave/Chined bottom to assist early lift
chined rails forward transitioning to diamond edged aft rails for release with kicker in the rocker line
Deck is slightly concave with a slight double concave at the front foot which fits under the arch of the front foot aiding a more planted front foot
Various footstrap insert options for a variety of different use. Positions allow for balanced stance while paddling setting your feet up for perfect positioning when paddling into a wave.
2. As a Wing Foil board:
With multiple generations of SUP foil boards evolving into out latest shapes, SMIK Wingfoil boards are the perfect blend of easy to use comfort and high performance, with volume only being placed where its needed.
Footstrap and foil positioning in relationship to this volume is what's critical, where we feel we have the balance just right for the perfect flight.
The new chined bottom shape is all about releasing water when rising onto foil and inadvertent touch downs with minimal drag when you do tough the water whilst up and flying. The hip in the chine leading to the diamond tail is also the most effective way of releasing water effortlessly.
Surf & Prone Boards
One may say that many of the prone boards are starting to look the same. However, there are small subtle differences that separate the SMIK prone boards from the rest.
The rocker needs to the be the right blend of flatness to initiate speed to catch the wave whilst having enough nose flip to stop pearling as you need to keep the nose of the board down attached to the wave before you get to your feet and start foiling.
Rails are chined to avoiding bogging when the hull may come down in contact with the water's surface.
Bottom shape is concaved in the nose for lift transitioning to a flat section where the foil attaches.
Deck shape is slightly concave at the front foot with a double concave underfoot supporting the arch of the foot providing front foot steering control whilst flying.
