The foil consists of three parts: the front wing, the stabilizer and the TBAR including fuselage and mast.
The avanti wing
There are two main types of wings: low-aspect and high-aspect. The low-aspect (Carver in our range), are going to be very forgiving wings, with a thick enough leading edge to fly at low speed. They will really be oriented to learn foil surfing or surfing “soft” waves. On the other hand, the high-aspect kites (Flyer and Performer) in our range will be more technical but will allow you to go for slightly more powerful waves. Indeed, the Performer has for example a thinner profile than the Carver which will allow to gain in speed.
The size of the mast will mainly depend on the depth of the water. To surf a shore break, rather small mast. On the other hand, for surfing an offshore swell, a large mast can be very suitable.
The fuselage will bring maneuverability or stability. The shorter the fuselage, the closer you can get to your supporting planes (front wing and stabilizer) and therefore the more maneuverability you gain. In this case, we will look for a nervous and dynamic practice. On the contrary, the longer the fuselage, the further away the load-bearing planes are and the more stable you will be at high speeds (ideal for surfing big waves where you are mainly trying to control your straight trajectory rather than carving in the wave).
Finally, the stabilizer will allow you to fine-tune the front wing. A small stab will bring dynamism to your practice. An extended stab will provide stability and support.
