Designed with ease of use in mind.
FlightAttendant foils are easy to ride all-rounders. The easy takeoff, stiffness, ventilation resistance, and mid-aspect platform make this a foil that can be used by any rider in almost all conditions.
New design features are made in an effort to increase turning, glide, and most of all predictability. Increased predictability helps you advance your riding from learning on flat water, through to massive jumps and fully ventilated turns.
The profile, outline, twist and taper have been developed in order to allow for great stability, efficiency, easy take off at low speed, and superior maneuverability. All while allowing for impressive performance over a very wide range of speeds.
The curved wingtips keep ventilation from moving up when getting close to the surface, making the FlightAttendant extremely forgiving.
The front wing and stabilizer perfectly complement each other, allowing for a short fuselage that results in a foil that is amazingly stable, and very easy to maneuver.
The outline and perfectly tuned wing and stabilizer will amaze you when effortlessly pumping from one wave to the next.
About our design goals for the new FlightAttendant
The new design features are made in an effort to increase turning, glide, and most of all predictability. We found increased predictability helped advance peoples riding from learning on flat water through massive jumps and fully ventilated turns.
Aspect: The Collection 3 foils have a higher aspect ratio to increase the glide/turn ratio. They are also flatter with a less aggressive overall curvature to increase speed and ventilation resistance.
Profile: The profile was chosen based on a few factors- ease of takeoff, speed range, and ventilation resistance. The airfoil on the flight attendant has a very low stall speed and high stall angle. This helps get you on foil easily with a wide range of boards, sails, skill level, and conditions. It also helps when landing jumps and pivoting in the pocket.
The wingtips have been slightly flattened and straightened this generation. The airfoil gain in ventilation resistance lets us run less curvature in the tip.
Fuselage: The new fuselage has been revised to reduce weight and drag while increasing modularity. The mast now uses a conical box-style connection, for absolute rigidity between mast and fuselage, the tail section has a reduced section, and the front wing connection is hollowed out.
