Armstrong Downwind Foil Board

85L-121L BOARDS IN STOCK NOW

Sleek lines, innovative volume distribution and state of the art construction help create a range of boards that are fast, stiff, light and easy to get on foil. Five sizes make sure that everyone who wants to sample the DW stoke is covered.

The speed of these DW boards combined with their high volumes also makes them exceptional for light wind winging, SUP surf foiling and prone downwinding.


Features:

  • High volume shape with a subtle deck recess for good feel and control while remaining easy to paddle.
  • V nose to subtle double concave up to the foil boxes reduces drag on touch downs, and the pin tail acts like a fin for easy tracking when paddling.
  • Round rails at front help accelerate the board into bumps.
  • The shape of the bottom chines is inspired by our Performance mast foil section for efficient water release and zippy acceleration onto bumps. 
  • Length to width ratio is optimised across the range for glide when paddling without compromising stability. 
  • Stiff, lightweight carbon PVC innegra sandwich construction with industry leading double carbon sandwich stringer system for a direct connection to the foil.
  • Proprietary custom carbon FG tracks for maximum strength, stiffness and durability.

Armstrong Downwind Foil Board - At a Glance

The Armstrong Downwind Foil board is longer and narrower which translates to a more efficient board from getting out of the water to getting onto foil. This efficiency in board speed allows us to ride smaller foils and smaller wings which makes riding small bumps and general cruising more fun. The Armstrong Downwind board has terrific stability for the intermediate rider. I recommend learning to wing foil on a shorter wider board before using a downwind board to wing with. I find that biggest advantage to using an Armstrong downwind board is that it opens up new possibilities to ride in lighter winds, with less effort.
