Wing foils for sale in Lanzarote and Canary Islands
Wing foil equipment comprises of three parts
Wing Foil Board
The wing foil board, the wing or kite and the hydrofoil.
These come in many shapes and sizes depending on your skill level and experience.
Wing foil boards are larger for beginners and get smaller the higher you level. A beginner board would typically have around 150 litres of volume.
The kite wing does not change much as you get better. Different sizes are available depending on the strength of wind you need it for. A good starting size would be a 5m2 wing. As you progress you can get smaller wings for stronger winds.
The wing foil hydrofoils and developing and changing very quickly.
A wing foil is made up of several parts. The mast, the fuselage, the back wing or stab (short for stabiliser) and the front wing. Each piece makes a difference in performance and offers trade offs, normally going better means harder to control.
The hydrofoil parts in detail
This varies mainly in length but also stiffness plays an important role. A shorter mast, of around 65cm, is good for learning on as its more stable. The longer mast, of around 85cm, gives advantages when going fast and over rougher seas.
The front hydrofoil wing
This is where the majority of the development is taking place. Shapes vary in width, depth, thickness, area and foil shape. A wide wing with less front to back depth of ‘chord’ is referred to has being higher profile. Not so wide with longer chords are called lower profile wings. Larger, lower profile wings are better to learn with giving greater stability, slower flight speeds but less glide and speed. Higher profile wings are more efficient giving better glide but less stability.
This is the same as a fuselage on an aeroplane and connects the front wing, stab and mast. Length, weight and stiffness play roles here but on the whole they are pretty standard.
Rear wing or stab.
The bigger and thicker the rear wing the more stable things become but slower. As always there is a trade off. Smaller thinner stabs give greater speeds and better maneouverability but are less stable.
