DETAILS

F_TYPE

The latest trend is in foil surfing, which opens up a whole range of possibilities. Never before has it been possible to set into motion or ride the waves this quickly with so little wind. To get you started as quickly and as easily as possible, and to make sure the fun never ends while on the water, DUOTONE has introduced the new F_TYPE – the ideal sail for silently hovering over the water.

Foil surfing is absolutely amazing because you feel almost weightless and literally floating above everything – and all this at winds at which you would never previously have even thought about surfing. To enjoy foil surfing the easy and smart way, DUOTONE has developed a highly specialised sail in the form of the four-batten F_TYPE. Its features are designed exactly for this new activity and will be a boon helpful both for intermediate riders and for relaxed wave riders. This includes the lower profile with reduced loose leech, since very small sail sizes are used based on the wind strengths. Thanks to its high elasticity, the Dacron luff ensures easier pumping and an altogether more gentle feel. Because the rig is held more upright when foil surfing, your foot has significantly more reach in order to ensure closing the gap even in this position. Low wind pressure necessitates the use of two SOFT.CAMS, which can effortlessly reverse when shifting despite weak rotational forces. And it you want it to be even easier, you can even remove both cambers and use the F_TYPE as the ultimate no-cam foilboard.

TRUE QUOTES

Sky Solbach
“The F_TYPE sail makes it so much easier to learn to foil surf. If I only had something like this myself back in the days. On top it's the ideal companion for SUP-foiling, the latest trend on Maui when we just try to get onto the wave as quickly as possible with the SUP.”
