What Size foils do people use?
« on: February 21, 2023, 04:11:42 AM »
I'm starting to learn Prone Foiling moving from Winging. Loving it and can't believe even in tiny conditions how much fun it is.  I learnt sup surf foil but didn't like the big board!

I'm 78kg using a Foil Drive on a 50L 4'10 board on a 70cm mast.

At the moment I'm learning in very small waves. I will progress to larger waves but on average they will only be 1ft to 4ft beach breaks.

Currently using a Mid Aspect 100cm 1750cm3 foil.

Wondered what average Prone foilers are using or have progressed onto?

*With winging I moved away from HA foils as they were too wide in turns and I liked the Medium High Aspect foils with a smaller wingspan
which feel way more fun/slashy on a wave.
78kgs
Board- Naish 4'10 60L
Foils - Gong Curve H, L and M
Wing 4m and 5m Airush
*Prone surf - Flying Fish 4'6 35L

Smaller than you would believe.

Axis 799, Lift 90, I'm stunned when I hear what some folks ride. Cabrinha 800 seems to be big now lol.

Hdip, weigh in, I know nothing here.

Highly wave dependent. Depends if you want to surf or pump. I like small surfy foils.
