The 135 could be called an all-round Foilboard – it makes foiling easy and accessible for everyone who wants to experience the feeling of flying over water. At the same time, it offers racers a very efficient racing machine.

It’s shape suits all levels, from beginner to professional – from zero to hero. It covers a very wide wind range. And yes, you can also use it with a normal fin. It feels like a shorter and wider version of a Super Sport and is almost as fast.

Compared to the155 the 135 has a slightly bigger range in higher winds as its nose stays a little lower when flying, so the board is therefore easier to control.

The board is much easier to use for foiling than normal Slalom or Freeride Boards as it offers a comfortable stance and enough leverage to handle the lift.

Once up on the foil the board provides a neutral platform so that you can fully concentrate on controlling the foil. The hull creates as little resistance in the air as possible, which is very important when you are flying.

The compact design (215 cm x 86 cm) has a wide tail and parallel outline. The even nose rocker combined with a soft tuck line in the front make for a smooth and forgiving entry once the nose comes down on the water.
This is essential, as many beginners tend to nosedive. This special nose does not dig into the water but will lift you back up once you touch the water and you will keep flying.

The volume distribution is very even to give the 135 great balance when you are up in the air, and a good glide before the boards lifts out of the water.

The tail cut-outs are designed to avoid any drag as the board starts to fly.

The rail shape in the standing area is also different to standard slalom and freeride boards to cater for the more upright stance when foiling.

Comes with a special reinforced  Medium Tuttle Box, which offers the stability needed for foiling. It also fits any normal Tuttle and therefore the boards can also be used for normal windsurfing.

Please note that Fin or  Foil Is not supplied with the board.
