The Compact has been fully optimized for wingboarding, with its highly concentrated volume, and low swing weight. Perfect for intermediate to advanced wing riders in lighter conditions, the stable platform and centralized volume create a board that is easy to throw around when jumping and doing progressive maneuvers. The high apex rail maintains the feel of a narrow board, with stability provided by the additional width when not planing.
- Addition of new smaller sizes.
- Optimized profiles across the range, with reduced width in larger sizes.
The Compact v2 shapes are all a fair amount narrower than the v1. The larger sizes are 1.5” (3.8cm) narrower, and the smaller sizes are around 0.8” (2cm) narrower. This improves the throw around factor and the glide, and although you do lose a bit of stability, they are still relatively wide. We have also pulled the nose in and rounded it slightly to help it release while riding or doing more progressive jumping. We have added new sizes to the Compact in the 36L and 46L to appeal more to the high wind or lighter weight Freestyle rider.

The Phazer foilboard is a showcase of our obsession with versatility. From surf pumping, to all-around kite foil cruising and progressive winging, the Phazer is an ultra-versatile foilboard designed to maximize your time on the water. The perfect companion for foiling at every level, each size ranging from 4’0” – 6’2” is optimized to cater to a wide range of users across categories, with a consistent feel underfoot making it easier to size up or down.
The Phazer is now available in two construction options. All sizes are available in the premium Reflex Carbon construction, while only the 5’10” and 6’2” Phazer are available in the new Duratech construction.
Covering an ultra-lightweight fused EPS core, the durable composite shell of the Duratech construction optimizes durability while minimizing weight. The wood sandwich standing area provides additional impact protection in the standing area, and works together with the T- Stringers on the bottom deck to enhance stiffness. The foil connection features a heavy duty high-density load plate, which carries the load of the foil and connects it to the top deck for a direct connection between the foil and the rider.
This addition to the range provides a high quality and durable price point into the Phazer range in sizes most common in entry level applications.
- Refined profiles on the sizes 5’3″ to 5’6″.
- Addition of the Duratech construction in sizes 5’10” and 6’2″.
- Addition of V strap configuration option in smaller sizes.
- New Reflex Carbon graphics.
Compared to the Phazer v2, we have reduced the width in the 66L, 78L, and 90L of the Phazer v3 between half an inch (12mm) and one inch (2.5cm) depending on the sizes. These are your more dedicated wing sizes, and this trend follows our push to increase maneuverability and overall performance. We have also increased the nose rocker and added the high apex rail originally developed in the Compact. This offers the feel of a smaller board when up and riding and maintains stability when getting up and going.
Built for riders looking for the perfect balance between performance, ease of use, and the ultimate maneuverability, the Tracer Foil Series will have you carving the cleanest lines with intuitive ease.
The Tracer is a medium aspect ratio hydrofoil series, designed for versatile performance and high-speed control, featuring a moustache tail wing for directional stability & ease of use.
- Aspect ratio on the front wing changed from AR5 to AR6.
- Profile has been refined for improved speed and glide.
- 700cm2 Front Wing added to the range.
- New Stealth fuselage, featuring a refined profile for reduced drag.
The Tracer v2 has moved to a higher aspect shape, with an aspect ratio increase from 4.6 to 5.0, resulting in improved pump and glide. We have also increased the taper ratio to ensure that the foil remains relatively easy to use and highly maneuverable.

The Method features all the crucial elements of a classic hardback, but with added edge flex and accurate anatomical curvature for the ultimate ergonomic fit.

The composite construction of the hardback allows for a long-lasting rigid structure, giving you the same high-level support for an extended period of time.
For the ultimate comfort, the Method features a full neoprene interior combined with a layer of memory foam to cushion your back from the hard external shell.
