The Neil Pryde Flight AL Windsurf Foil from Oceansource is NP's newest Freerace Aluminum foil. Durable, fast and suitable for a wide wind range! The fuselage is perfectly moulded into the aluminium mast, therefore this foil has minimal drag. For this foil wings, we used high-pressure moulded Pre-preg carbon with inner foam, specifically developed for high-performance foiling. This foil delivers maximum durability to weight ratio.
While it is a faster and leaner foil, it is great for riders that have recently begun foiling and are ready for the next level and more fun on the water. BASE SYSTEM
New CNC reinforced base construction. Two deep vertical tube connections to the mast for maximum strength, eliminating movement and offering perfect load transfer. Avoids vibration around the upper attachment area. GLIDE SURF foil comes with Top Plate base system.
x18 M8 titanium plated Stainless Steel bolts for maximum strength to weight ratio while preventing any corrosion problems. All using T-40 Torx drive, delivered with the product.
TAIL WING ADJUSTMENT
Delivers inverted thrust to balance the main wing and maintain easy control and stability. Foil is perfectly trimmed for average weight rider (75- 80kg) with tail in a neutral position. Heavier riders, especially in light winds or during the learning process might prefer slightly more stabilizing force that a down tilted rear wing provides. Also, this down-angled position increases low-end power and lift of the foil. At the same time lighter riders, especially in strong wind conditions, may benefit from a drag and lift reduction by reducing the downwards tilt angle of the rear wing. Less down-angle will reduce the differential angle between the two wings and make the foil feel less draggy in the water, resulting in the fastest possible foiling sensation.
60 cm Aluminum mast. Optimized structure with two CNC female base system inserts ensuring maximum strength. Hollow construction to reduce weight combined with x3 vertical cross-ribs for maximum stiffness. Sanded mast trailing edge to avoid planning turbulence noise. Tempered, saltwater corrosion resistant 6061-T6 aluminium.
Perfectly blended wing to CNC machined fuselage connection and integrated wind saddle providing minimum drag. Volume and weight of the aluminium used in the fuselage is reduced by eliminating the forward protruding nose.
GLIDE SURF pre-preg carbon layup with inner foam construction for maximum durability to weight ratio. Front wings span, Large: 86cm / Medium: 75cm and Small: 64cm. Tail wingspan, Large: 51cm / Tail wingspan, Small: 40cm.
GLIDE wings setup creates a natural tendency to roll into turns maintaining a nice balance during your ride. The Front wing is designed with a pronounced rounded Angle of attack and an elliptical bend shape. While flying, this thick leading edge on the front wing naturally closes the radius of your turn, tightening it. Far back, the angled down tail wings maintain a self-stabilizing roll allowing an easy turning performance. During this momentum, the GLIDE tail wing persists always want to come back to a flat position and cancelling the turning radius.
The glide wind foil can be interchanged with the S, M, L sized wing set.
INTERCHANGEABLE TOP BASES:
The Glide Wind comes with a top plate base system in the original packaging and can be interchanged with the following other Top Base systems:
