DETAILS

HS625 FOIL

THE HS 625 FOIL KIT IS FAST AND ULTRA-SMOOTH! IT’S OUR SMALLEST FRONT WING IN THE RANGE COMBINED WITH THE HS232 TAIL WING.

It has amazing speed and stability so you can carve with confidence at high speeds. If you are pushing your limits in the waves this is what you need for towing into bigger waves and swells. For Kite foiling it’s our highest performer, it’s not a race wing but it’s super-fast, smooth with great response and overall performance. The futuristic tip design is what we believe makes all the difference. The winglets make for a clean tip flow by reducing the wingtip vortices, this improves overall performance and feel when you pile on the speed!

  • Kite: Performance-free ride kite.
  • Surf: Big wave riding or light rider.
  • SUP: Big wave riding or light rider.
  • Tow: Ideal for experienced tow riders.
  • Wake: Experienced riders.
  • Wing Foil: All riders in strong winds.
  • Construction is based around a high-density foam core, which is wrapped with 100% IM and High Modulus Carbon.
  • The main wings are shaped and refined for maximum stability and predictability at all speeds
  • The foil sections have been carefully designed by one of the world’s foremost sport wing designers.
