Armstrong Foils new and innovative “Forward Geometry” Wing Surf and Wing Sup board designs, highlight the drive and passion Armstrongs have to always be improving and maximizing the potential of every ride!

The logic behind Forward Geometry is all about the mast track position and volume distribution in relation to the center of the board. The further forward the mast can go the better, it improves maneuverability, response and dramatically reduces the rotational swing weight effect. Combine this with state-of-the-art 320mm Carbon fiber A+System Mast Tracks and you have maximum potential to get your board and foils geometry working for you!

Without question, shorter boards offer superior maneuverability, feel and control once on the fly but getting them there is not so easy. Until now that is, as boards get shorter it becomes important to maximise stability and hull speed when still attached to the water. The new Forward Geometry shapes from have addressed this issue with a beautiful innovative approach, enabling everyone to take advantage of the benefits riding shorter boards.

From beginner to hero … The FG boards deliver a level of speed, stability and unrivaled handling performance that transcends what’s available today! Bold claims you might think, you will feel and understand the difference once you ride one.

Wing Surf FG range, ideal for prone surf foiling, small board winging, kite and wake foiling.

Wing Sup FG range, ideal for SUP foiling and winging.
