Foilboards are a new paradigm that opens up a future full of new possibilities. Racing, Lightwind, Waves, Freestyle and more. Different Foilboarding ride-styles have emerged emerging with specialized gear and specific techniques.
Why are foilboards becoming so popular? kite foilboards, are super efficient and can go in much lighter winds than conventional equipment. This means that kiteboarding is more accessible for people living in light wind areas. It also means that people can kite more often, and when their schedule allows. A kite foilboard points much higher into the wind (like a raceboard), and is great for people racing around an upwind-downwind course. Foils are being raced on local and national levels, and even have a world racing series. Foils may even be the next kiteboard to be selected for Olympic competition. Foils are not just for going fast. Foilboards are also being used for freeriding, freestyle and waves.
