What size / surface area should the front wing of my kite foil have?

What size the front wing of your kite foil should be depends on how much experience you already have in hydrofoiling and what your ambitions are. To get started with kite foiling, it makes sense to choose a larger front wing, as it offers more stability and is more forgiving. Larger wings are also well suited for freeriding and cruising when there is little wind or for surfing waves.
A small / narrow front wing can build up very high speeds and is therefore very suitable for racing. In addition, these front wings work well for freestyle and jumps. However, you should already have experiences in foiling to use such wings, otherwise those can slow down your progress.

How does the shape and the size / surface area of the wing affect the characteristics of the kite foil?

A front wing with a large surface area ensures a lot of stability and an early lift at low speed. A small surface area reduces the drag of the front wing and increases its top speed and improves acceleration. The ratio of length to width of a wing is specified as the aspect ratio (AR). The smaller the AR, the more elongated and narrow the wing.
There are also front wings, which are more or less curvy. Curved front wings offer better directional stability, whereas a straight wing is more efficient but more demanding.
The tips of the wings of the front wing can be stretched more or less backwards (sweep). Wings with a lot of sweep are easier to control and feel more stable, but a front wing with a lot of sweep is less efficient.

Which is the right mast length for kite foiling?

For foiling-beginners, it makes sense to choose a small to medium foil mast (30-60cm), as this is more controllable and more forgiving during touch-downs and thus gives you more security at the beginning. After you made some progress and are able to foil safely, a longer mast (80-105cm) generates more speed, better maneuverability of the foil and of course the ultimate feeling of flying!

Foil mast made of carbon or aluminum - what are the differences?

Foil masts made out of aluminum are a bit more heavy than carbon masts as well as less stiff but also more durable and less expensive. Carbon Hydrofoil masts are lightweight, super stiff, but need to be handled with more care. If your budget for your kite-foil equipment is not that huge or if you are a beginner and you don’t know yet whether you will enjoy foiling or not, you can easily go for an aluminum mast without regrets. If, on the other hand, you are already a performance-oriented foiler or if this is your goal, then a carbon mast with its low weight and high rigidity will probably meet your requirements better.

Which foil is best suitable for freeriding?

A foil that is best suited for freeriding usually has a larger front wing with a low AR. As a result, it offers more lift even at lower speeds, is neatly maneuverable, feels very stable and has a lower top speed.

Which foil is best suitable for racing?

A typical Race Foil has a long and narrow front wing with a high AR. The mast should be 90cm long or longer and typically has a sharp arrow. Ideally the foil is made of carbon. The less parts of a race foil are interchangeable the better, because fewer assembly points increase stiffness and performance.

Can I vary the mast length and wing sizes of all foils?

Most manufacturers offer foils of which the foil mast and the foil wing can be exchanged. If you are not sure whether the mast length or wing size of a foil is variable, please contact us by email or give us a call!
