Let's Chat: 2017 MACkite Foil Showdown 

If 2016 was the year of the foil (according to the ancient kiteboarder zodiac calendar), then 2017 is the year of foil refinement. Hydrofoils are being ridden for more than simply racing, and are now accessible for most riders. For goodness sake, Kai Lenny is ridding them without a tow-in on waves. Here are our 2017 winners. Every product in our catalog is quite special, but the below foils really impressed us. Read more...

What Liquid Force has to say about the 2018 Rocket Fish

We think that adding a free riding hydrofoil board to your quiver should serve a couple purposes. The Rocket foil board is wonderful for first time glides on a foil all the way to advanced foil carving. The Rocket Foil board has higher surface area and a slight increased rocker line that assist in water “touch down” deflection, keeping the board from submerging and giving the rider plenty of time to master the art of riding a foil. While this board does have an adjustable track mounting system for the foil it also serves as a great board to ride without the foil. If you find yourself in an area to shallow, to much sea or lake weeds, don’t worry! The Rocket works great as a directional, all around fun board! Board comes complete with a directional fin system and enough straps for an inline setup or a staggered 3 strap setup.

The all-new Slingshot Hover Glide NF2 foil is low-cost, entry-level option in the 2016 Slingshot Foil lineup. The Hover Glide is designed for all-around performance freeriding, from beginner to intermediate. The aluminum and composite construction keep the price point low and durability high. This stable, user-friendly foil features a 35.5" mast (stock), with multiple other sizes available for progression and shallow-water foiling.

This foil is able to be mounted to any of Slingshot's foil-specific board options, and can be broken down completely for transport. If you're looking to get into the foiling scene without completely emptying the wallet, the Hover Glide NF2 from Slingshot is the foil for you.

The Rocket Foil shares the mast and fuselage dimensions of the Happy Foil. A longer cord length, thinner profile mast, and a 78cm fuselage with multiple wing position placement. The easy to ride low aspect wings set this foil apart from the progression pack. The durable glass construction of the wings allows for easy entry up onto a foil and lower glide speeds, making this set perfect for the first timer to the advanced foil trick master.

A longer cord length, thinner profile mast, 78 cm fuselage with multiple wing position placement, and a fluid carbon lamination medium aspect wing set will have you running with the fastest hydro crew at the beach while keeping foiling fun. If you feel the need for a tuned ride, the Happy foil wings come with variable rear wing shims to adjust the angle of attack for the perfectly balanced feel.

Buying into the Ghost Whisper foil is an investment in an evolving program, not just a single product.

    My first directional

    Posted by Anton Brazhnyk on 26th Aug 2016

    Can't compare it to anything else as it's my first directional board. Switching to it from twin-tip is a lot of fun and the fact I can add foil package to it later adds some value.
