2018 Ride Engine Futura Foil Set
What Ride Engine has to say about the Futura Foil Set
Ride Engine was created out of a desire to help people connect with the ocean in meaningful ways. We see foiling as an obvious progression towards that mission. So, when we had the opportunity to collaborate and license technology from the leaders of the foil revolution; Slingshot Sports, we didn’t hesitate. The Futura Foil is modeled around Slingshot’s industry leading Hover Glide foil platform. It’s a medium lift, medium speed design, ideal for paddling in on waist high waves.
The Futura foil excels at down-the-line, bottom to top waves, or any bump with real structure. It features flat, medium-lift, front and rear wing stabilizers. Designed for early takeoff and relatively fast foiling speeds. Quick and responsive turning once you’re up and riding. Fast top-end speeds are important to progress through the beginner stage. The Futura’s 24-inch mast length is just right for surfing. It has plenty of vertical to tap into the energy of a wave, making it optimal for carving and its short enough to reduce the severity of crashes and prevent you from running aground.
