The summer Wing Foiling season in New Zealand was incredible on both the West and East coasts.

Wind, epic swells and empty waves for carving up and connecting, has seen Armstrong Foils co-founder Armie Armstrong riding, testing and pushing himself in the search to improve the A-Wing.

Packing more power in a smaller size, radical responsiveness, and greater comfort, the A-Wing V2 was engineered, designed, and tested to be a natural extension of your body. No matter your experience or riding style, the A-Wing V2 is tailored to fuel your progression.

The Airframe, Evolved

More power, better balance. The heart of the V2 lies within its deep camber, large-diameter airframe, known for remarkable power, hang time in jumps, and balanced feel. For increased canopy stiffness, we’ve coupled an X-ply power panel across the central load zone with redefined sail tension and seams. Together, these improvements help you pump onto foil more easily, jump higher, and ride a smaller wing than ever before.

Better Handles Handle Better

Our most powerful and durable wing yet is now also our most comfortable. Short handle loops provide a more tunable, balanced feel to reduce arm fatigue, and double stitching translates to the most direct response possible. Prefer a boom? Throw on the included Power Bar mini boom and modulate your setup for easy tacking and gybing.

Visibility is Crucial

In a crowd, it’s critical to see your fellow riders. That’s why we’ve designed the V2’s windows specifically to increase visibility from front to back without compromising weight or stiffness. Best of all, these windows are foldable, transforming your pack down into a no brainer.

A Legacy of Durability

Added aramid reinforcements and a leash lock webbing strap keep it together when things get hectic, whether you’re in the surf or back on land.
