The extra-large cutaways, more than double the size of the regular Formula’s and the extremely short nose help the board to plane and take-off in the lightest winds. Once up on the foil, the thicker tail provides extra leverage and control while the short nose allows the board to react instantly to every input from its rider: maximise every gust, fly consistently through lulls, fly deeper downwind and tighter upwind.
Extra-large cutaways, more than double the size of the regular Formula’s, reduces the wetted area and improves take-off onto the foil.
SHARP RAILS AND BEVELED NOSE
The sharp rails in the tail allows the boards to get planing and reach take off speed more easily. Additionally, the board will bounce off the water if you clip the water surface instead of sticking and throwing you into a catapult.
The beveled nose improves aerodynamics and ultimately provides more control at high speeds.
RECESSED MAST TRACK
Deck concave and recessed mast track for a more vertical sailing position while closing the gap between the sail and the deck of the board.
The Foil Box is larger and stronger than a normal fin box to distribute loads over a larger area. It is built using solid sheets of 20 mm thick high-density PVC with 8 mm thick carbon fibre walls, and has a flat, parallel bottom which allows the box to take both types of foil bases: tapered ‘Tuttle-style’ base and rectangular foil bases.
In either case, it is strongly recommended for the front of the foil’s base to reach the bottom of the box. This ensures that the vertical lifting load from the foil will be carried by both the front wall of the box and the bottom wall of the box.
