RF Foil V3 Carbon

Designed for performance foiling, the RF Foil range is shaped to excel in both light winds and high-power conditions, with no compromises to control over the course.

Marked by its square outline, flat deck, and remarkably wide tail, the board swiftly accelerates to take-off speed. On the bottom, the foil box is placed as far back as possible. The combined effect allows the RF Foil to rapidly take off over a short distance.

Every size of the RF Foil series showcases specialized tail cutouts that significantly diminish drag during acceleration prior to take-off or just after touchdowns. Notably, the 85 and 91 sizes feature oversized cutouts, reducing tail volume for heightened efficiency.

The wide tail proves pivotal when flying at high speeds. The positioning of footstraps nearer to the rail allows the sailor to control the foil pitch with higher precision and enhances overall upwind tracking. Conversely, placing footstraps further inboard helps keep the foil pitch under control on a predominantly downwind course.

All RF Foil sizes feature a lowered mast track. Keeping the rig connection lower improves overall board and rig control while in flight.

Occasional touchdowns are inevitable in foiling, particularly in choppy conditions. Catching water leads to quick deceleration and even loss of control. To counter that, a lot of volume is shaped into the RF Foil rails. This extra volume with a generous nose rocker result in a board bouncing back without “sticking” and losing speed.

RF Foils represents a natural progression from slower and forgiving freefoil boards. Their direct feel and explosive nature soon become an essential feature once the transition is made. Even when flying faster and higher, the RF Foil remains comfortable and in control, enabling you to remain focused on pushing your speed.

Characteristics

RAPID TAKE-OFF

A strong start is crucial in competitive windsurfing. The RF Foil shapes incorporate several construction elements, including the foil box position, elongated tail cut-outs, and a wide overall shape, all aimed at accelerating the board to its take-off speed within a minimal distance.

MAXIMIZING CONTROL

Flying at high speeds requires a significant degree of control to uphold a competitive advantage on the racing course. A wide tail with efficiently positioned footstraps provides the necessary leverage over the foil when it is subjected to substantial forces.

The occasional touchdowns are mitigated by the ample volume in the rails and the generous nose rocker.

CARBON CONSTRUCTION
One-Strut Design
CARBON CONSTRUCTION
Carbon Construction allows the creation of the lightest designs possible. The inherent strength of carbon fibers means we can use less material compared to the fiberglass variant while still achieving exceptional durability. Carbon also enhances stiffness and responsiveness in the board, making it an ideal choice to seamlessly blend top-notch performance with minimal weight.

TAIL CUT-OUTS
One-Strut Design
TAIL CUT-OUTS
To minimize drag and enhance acceleration, RF Foil designs incorporate tail cutaways. This proves particularly helpful during occasional touchdowns as the board can swiftly regain its momentum and rebound onto the foil. The decreased volume also enables the rider to submerge the tail while pumping, effectively loading the foil for rapid take-off. Models 85 & 91 feature extra long tail cut-outs.

LOWERED MAST TRACK
One-Strut Design
LOWERED MAST TRACK
The deck shape includes a recess around the mast track, effectively lowering the sail's foot and narrowing the gap between the board and sails. This design enhancement improves overall efficiency and provides greater control during flight.

FOIL BOX
One-Strut Design
FOIL BOX
The foil box is positioned a mere 3 cm from the tail tip. When combined with other RF Foil features, this rearward placement results in a more explosive take-off.

WIDE TAIL

WIDE TAIL
During high-speed flight, the foil undergoes significant forces. A wide tail is crucial in this context as it offers substantial leverage over the foil, aiding the rider in maintaining control.

DOUBLE DENSITY SHOCK ABSORBERS (DDSA)
One-Strut Design
DOUBLE DENSITY SHOCK ABSORBERS (DDSA)
Positioned beneath the rider's feet when secured in the footstraps, the shock absorbers are designed to offer heightened comfort during challenging conditions and landings from jumps. The combination of triple layer footpad and DDSA minimizes strain on the rider's body, particularly during some heavier landings, and enhances overall comfort.
