5’8″ Wing Foil Board

The 5’8” Wing Foil Board is a dedicated design by Steve Legge that will get you going as efficiently as possible no mater the conditions. At 4.25” thick with our “duck bill” nose, makes this Wing Foil board very stable platform to start out and not out grow.

Designed for the rider looking for a board to Wing Foil or SUP Foil with a volume of 88 litres.
The flat deck with 3k carbon standing zone delivers a solid feel for powerful turns and allows you to kneel when starting out. The chinned rails and aggressive kick tail maximizes the release and increases flight time. The progressive rocker is ideal for those touch down so you can skim back up or get going as easily as possible to carve a turn.
Handles on the deck and on the bottom of the board makes the board easier to manage. A Futures box with a G5 size fin is included if you want to use the board for SUP Foiling.
Multiple foot strap inserts for all rider styles. Foot straps are available at a very reasonable price.

Standard 90mm Foil Mount with our Pro 3K Carbon and Glass “Foil Mount” construction is by far the most detailed in the Foil Board industry, it not only adds strength, it gives more feel and control.
You’ll find the 5’8” a great Foil Board for those just starting out or heavier riders wanting a lower volume board, for Wing Foiling or SUP Foiling, enjoy your next flight.!

General knowledge about Wing Foil Boards

Board Size

As most board-riders know, size does matter, lol…. this is especially true for Wing Foiling. You need enough buoyancy to float your weight, enough stability to stand on the board, or a minimum to kneel. The easy answer would be to simply purchase the largest board, but you’ll progress and be pissed off in a few weeks. A larger board, while easier to stand on, will be harder to lift off the water, more difficult to maneuver, and hard to handle in waves. The best way to size a board is one that can just keep you floating when kneeling on it. When wing foiling water starting is very advanced, so pay more attention to the volume, versus size when choosing a board.

We find most riders feel that the proper size board will be similar in volume to their SUP Wave paddle board, and similar in width to their standard SUP board, but it’s a lower volume for Wing Foiling.
As an example, I ride a 150 litre SUP wave model of paddleboard with dimensions 8’6” x 30” x 4", the Wing Foil board with 115 litres of volume and dimensions 6’2 x 29” x 4.75” is a good fit.
Similarly, if you have a "do it all" longboard style SUP that is 175 litres with dimensions 11' x 33 x 5", a Wing foil board of 135 litres would be a good choice with dimensions 6’6” x 30” x 5”.

The wing foil board is shorter and less volume, but adding the Foil and the stability of the smaller board greatly increases.
Sizes and recommendations range by design but If you have some athletisism, I feel this will give you a good place to start...

  • 100-140lbs - 40-70L board
  • 140-160lbs - 70-100L board
  • 160-180lbs - 95-125L board
  • 180-250lbs - 120-150L board

If you can manage it, a shorter board will pump up easier due to the reduced surface tension (suction) on the front of the board. In addition to added maneuverability, the short and wide design also results in a better acceleration curve to build speed for lift off due to its lower aspect ratio and reduced drag.


Kick Tail

The kick tail was designed to rock the board onto foil with less effort and drag. Straight tailed boards act like a brake in the water when you attempt to rock the foil up. For SUP Foil boards, foiling in waves the kick tail is a great feature to have but it is even more beneficial for Wing Foiling. This is because it takes longer to accelerate to flying speed with wind power than a breaking wave's power. An experienced foiler can begin pumping this way before they reach their flying speed by removing the drag and surface tension of the board so that you can reach that speed more quickly and make good use of gusts.

Foot Strap mounting inserts

Foot strap mounting inserts are a good feature to have on your board, even if you are not at that level yet. If you are going to spend the money, it's nice to know that it will support your progression beyond your first steps. Having foot straps allows the rider more leverage and a more secure connection to the board. This is especially important for hard maneuvering or jumps. We offer multiple stance options, Surf or single strap set up, as well as the “V’ front option or Windsurf set up.
