The Take Off is the Foiler’s board of choice for anything wing, foil surf, foil downwind and more. This is a true all-round foil board that caters for first-time flyers getting started in foiling all the way through to experienced foilers looking to get high and go fast. an all-new bottom shape, release edges, rocker, volume and outline. The slight tail-rocker allows waves to be caught with ease, whether powered by paddle or wing.
The Take Off comes in a high volume, short size range. Our super small size range with high volume means riders can ride smaller boards than ever before. This new range allows for riders to go down in size by around one foot in length. Smaller size, easier riding in a higher performance package.
KEY FEATURES -
> Boxy Rail Design: The rails include a chine design and feature a boxy design toward the top at the standing area. This maximizes the width of the board, making for a more stable and comfortable riding experience.
> Rail Edge Release: The new rail release revolutionises liftoff. The sharp rail edge release allows for fast and smooth take-offs.
> Chine Rails: The new Chined Rail design ensures a reduced rail area. Especially helpful when turning on the foil, touchdowns and ensures the earliest and easiest take-offs.
> Round Tail Design: After testing a variety of tail designs, we found that this round design gives an easy and smooth sensation during lift-off.
> Tail Edge Release: The sharp tail edge releases when lifting off.
> Deck Channel: At the tail, water is funnelled out from the board as quickly as possible.
> Concave Deck: The low centre of gravity significantly improves stability when paddling and foiling by bringing you closer to the foil for the best foiling sensation.
> Footstrap inserts: The 18cm distance between the inserts allows you to have a wider footstrap span for easy trim and control while foiling. 4’6″ and 4’2″ models feature a 15.5cm distance between inserts for extra locked-in performance at higher speeds.
> New V-footstrap: The new front V-strap provides a more centered position on the board for more control over the foil, offers a secure fit and is easier to install. Installing the strap in the centre allows you to have the same angle for both feet with flexibility to adjust the fit depending on rising style.
(Comes with Blue Carbon and can be purchased after market for Lite Tech)
> 12" Foil Box: The brand new 12” foil box gives more options to more riders. Move the foil to your preferred liking. Further forward suits riders starting to foil who may need an extra lift. Further back on the box is for high wind conditions, large waves and highly skilled riders. All boards are optimised so the middlebox position gives the best balance point for foilers.
> Flat Foil Area: The Flat foil area is designed to keep the foil in the ideal angle at all times, no matter where the foil is placed.
> Carry Handle: The carry handle is moved to the bottom of the board to avoid interfering when foiling, yet still easy to carry. (5’2″ and smaller sizes come with small handles. The other sizes come with Starboard standard IQ handle)
