AERO Foil Freeride
Top ranked by International magazines test results, ease of use, perfect for learning and evolve foiling with a compromise between foil racing and normal planing hull designs making the Aero Freeride boards a must for all riders who want to experience this wonderful new windsurfing feel!
• Shape : The revolutionary all-new ’HydroPlane’ bottom shape concept where the nose starts with no vee to sit the board square in the water maximising the planing surface at low speeds, which quickly changes into a significant vee plan-form with a very deep double concave under the mast track area. This helps hydrodynamic-ally channel the water towards the tail of the board before planing and aerodynamically channels the air of the board after planing.
Towards the tail the strong vee quickly transforms into an inverted vee shape between the feet, this keeps the outside rail line in the ‘water power zone’ straighter than a normal vee board, which we found drastically increases the control and side-to-side stability at speed.
• Rail Design : Sharp vertical rails from nose to tail are prevalent from the waterline until halfway up the rail to assist planing and to ‘cut’ the water when touching down especially at an angle. Then a sharp but aerodynamically friendly transition exists in the rail shape with a very smooth curve that is designed to be as drag free and efficient as possible whilst allowing in air and providing maximum comfort for the arch of the foot, a critical point while foiling.
• Foil footstrap inserts : Foiling requires the front foot to be further back than on a slalom board, meaning the foot stance is very close to keep the board always on trim and the rider weight over the foil at all times: this increases control.
Additionally we have well placed chicken straps for windy cross and downwind reaches.
• Construction : Built with exclusive SSS moulding tech (seamless single shot) full wrap PVC double sandwich, with double thickness in the most stressed areas combined with Carbon/ innegra and Biax carbon deck layup from tail to ¾ length giving the boards the best result in terms of flex, light weight, strength and durability. Glass bottom with Biax
carbon reinforcements on the full tail area for max strength and stiffness on the foil-box area.
