Pocket frother. Foam chaser. The Swell prone-surf foilboard is shaped for controlled carving and max pumpability on endless bumps and lumps. Happy to pump. Greedy for more. It has an ultra-lightweight yet durable hybrid carbon construction that is stiff, responsive and manoeuvrable. Grabbable rails make your paddle out and duck diving a breeze. Stable, fast-release take-offs? Sorted. Effortless touchdown recovery? Goes without saying. And we’ve cracked the code on the sweet spot - where you can remain without shifting your feet. The cutaways and the way the tail tapers reduces the volume in the tail, helping to bring the board’s centre of buoyancy forward, right underneath your stance, while the board’s longitudinal deck grip features a centreline ridge and transverse markers for tactile and visual stance referencing. The integrated tail kick pad features cutouts for your feet while prone paddling. And the wedged tail shape reduces the overall length and swing weight, improving the pumpability. Prone-surf / wake / wing / tow-surf or kite foil. No wave is 'too” anything for the Swell.
“It's not what I ride that defines me, it's how I feel while riding. The Swell keeps me light hearted.” – Daniel Kereopa
Fast-release cutaways and tapered tail
The sharp release edge on the tail allows for an earlier take-off, while the cutaways and the way the tail tapers reduces the volume in the tail, helping to bring the board’s centre of buoyancy forward, right underneath your stance. Having the centre of buoyancy directly underneath your stance is essential for finding that sweet spot on the board where you can remain without shifting your weight back and forward. The wedged tail shape reduces the overall length and improves the pumpability of the foil. Every movement counts to staying up on the foil.
Hybrid Carbon Technology
Lighter weight construction for stiffness, manoeuvrability and glide. The stiffer the board, the better it will pump and the more responsive it feels. A light yet durable epoxy composite laminate, with a balanced carbon and e-glass fibre layup is wrapped around an EPS core. High-density closed-cell PVC reinforcement around the foil track mount, leash plug and foot strap inserts spread the load. An ultra-lightweight double bamboo reinforcement layer under the standing area adds greater impact resistance and rigidity.
Intuitive double concave deck
There is a significant amount of concave in the deck that works to position the rider lower and makes the board more stable to ride. The concave puts all the volume outside on the rails, so the centre of the board is the low point. It creates the best potential for balancing and is the most comfortable and responsive shape to stand on.
