Feather boards have been designed with a straightforward objective: to be as easy and fun as possible. This was achieved by keeping only the bare minimum necessary on the board. They’re as short as possible while keeping as much volume as possible, you then get the floatation for low-speed starts while having minimal swing weight when riding for easy turns.
To ensure extremely high quality and durability, all our foiboards are now made in Portugal, with a closed-cell lightweight XPS core. This means the core does not take on water if you ding it, and does not blow out when it gets hot.
The carbon construction makes the board very stiff, allowing for precise and direct control, and extremely efficient pumping.
17L – 3’8” x 17”5/16 x 2”
35L – 4’1” x 20”1/2 x 3”5/8
52L – 4’4” x 23” x 3”1/2
72L – 4’9” x 24”1/2 x 4”7/16
88L – 5’0” x 26”3/4 x 4”1/2
112L – 5’6” x 29”1/2 x 4”7/16
The concave deck provides the best stand and comfort possible for a more secured stance especially when riding strapless, while also making the board act like a hull which provide more floatation that the board's volume would suggest.
Brings multiple advantages: It adds floatation to compensate for the short length of the board, ensuring that the board is stable in the pitching axis, it also allows for better aerodynamics, all the while preventing water from accumulating in the nose to ensure a lightweight nose all the time.
Provides the very best water flow before launching, keeping the board tracking forward instead of drifting sideways. When you touch down while flying, it helps you to stay balanced, and the two side channels release all the way to the back of the board for the best flow possible.
Ensure that touch-downs are the smoothest and least disturbing possible, letting the board keep its original motion while touching the water in order to minimize any de-stabilisation of the rider.
Allows for fast take-offs by simply allowing the board to pitch up effortlessly.
Feather stays true to our goal to make gear that is easy, fun and intuitive to ride and handle. These foilboards are truly a blast regardless of your level. We’ve packed them with lots of volume and increased the rail-to-rail length which makes them very stable when floating, and the bottom channels help tracking forward when taxiing, with an increased rocker that helps you ride through chop. All features that make this a very easy board to learn on, but advanced riders also greatly appreciate. Once in the air, you will notice how lively and playful the compact shape is, by having minimal swing-weight and a very balanced ride.
That’s also thanks to the high quality materials and construction now that we moved production to Portugal. Thanks to the XPS core and carbon construction, the board is very stiff for direct feedback and control. Thanks to its stiffness, pumping is also very efficient as no force is being lost when pushing on the board.
Overall I’m confident we’ve made the perfect board for anyone looking to get into the sport, wants to cruise, ride waves, or jump as high as they can.
Our new collection feather boards are all made in Portugal, by surfers, for surfers. This means there’s a very high level of quality control on the finished products because a surfer knows how and why a board is supposed to look and feel.
At the heart of every wing board is the core. We’re using a closed-cell foam that can take up to 50.000 kg of pressure per square meter while staying light! The fact that it’s closed-cell means that if you ding your board, the core does not take on any water, unlike any other EPS foam core. This means you can finish your session, or even holiday in the unlucky event of a small crack or ding.
Around the core is a 100% carbon fiber construction that provides stiffness and strength. This gives you a direct response for easy control, and allows for very efficient pumping, all while staying very light.
Another focus point is the foilbox. We are using FUTURES foilboxes as they are proven to be the strongest in the industry. The mount is CNC cut with the board, placed in ultra high density PET honeycomb, and sandwiched in the carbon, providing a bomb-proof construction.
By increasing the rail-to-rail floating area, it’s easy to balance on the board while still on your knees or when just standing up on the board.
We’ve also added more rocker in the nose of the board, which helps with unintentional touchdowns, but also makes it easier to go through chop when still taxiing, and doesn’t bury the nose underwater as soon as you lean a little too far forward.
