Best Foils For Beginners

Learning to foil is an exciting experience and involves the right set of gear. Beginners should opt for a bigger foil board for a larger planing surface, better stability and more control. A shorter mast is also strongly recommended, as it keeps you closer to the wave for more stability (a shorter distance for those inevitable falls) and allows more control while foiling. Finally, be sure to choose a wing size that's supportive and stable, ensuring an overall pleasant learning experience!
