New 2023 Striker Wind Wing Foil model is the result of tireless research and development its key attributes are hints of boat hull straking to promote planing and lift off the water with ease, a subtle single concave deck to suit the rider that wants to ride straight stance or slightly offset, a nice pulled in tail to enhance turning clearance and minimize drag if touching down, all of these design attributes are to enhance the riders foiling experience not matter what skill level they are.
BLANK: EPS Foam Core. 3d Shape cut, then hand finished. I'm hand shaping in the more refined design elements.
MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION: 200g Carbon Fibre twill weave, vacuum bagged to ensure quality, strength and even resin flow control, kinetics epoxy resin.
2 x 10.75" Future boxes + High density reinforced box / mast area with 200 gm Double Bias Carbon reinforcement patch.
PLAN SHAPE (OUTLINE)
Balanced, fast, single flyer in tail to reduce tail area into a squash tail. wide enough in the tail area so as to still support you when on flat water, but still narrow enough to be out of the way when in critical positions. I've factored in other design elements for wave face touch downs or connections that slow you down. In other words the design allows for these wave touch downs and will ride through them and release. The overall appearance is that of flow.
Inspired by the boat hull planing strakes, the theory is the staggered hull strakes promote planing, lift and acceleration as the board breaks away from the minimised wetted areas, this design also helps make touchdowns and rebounds off foam less severe due to the planing area deflecting the water and minimising drag
Aerodynamic, minimal drag, concave vee deck with tail kick. The concave vee lowers your centre of gravity and the tail kicker gives balance, power and responsiveness. the concave deck is suited to straight stance or staggered stanced riders, The overall appearance is soft and smooth.
