The Nomad has a gentle concave on the top deck that makes you always feel planted in no matter if you using it for downwinders or lightwind winging…

We go through the 2024 AK foilboard range.
Constructions, model changes, sizes, sweet spots and strengths; we’ve ridden it all and go through it all….
The AK Tracer v3 is one of the true next generation foils; it has early lift, really wide useable sweet spots, and it’s very playful…

This is a must-try harness with comfort levels that took us completely by surprise! With the support of a hard-shell and the comfort of a soft-shell, this harness has quickly become the first one that gets picked up when packing the car for a session. Paired with the carbon Aerobar, it’s a hard to beat combo!
The new Tracer v3 has the glide and speed of a high aspect foil, but it’s still a very user-friendly foil .
Let’s breakdown the updated shape and changes…

When unpacking, the Compact wingboard with its low weight is striking. It has a wide nose and thick profile with
a tail kick at the end. The high apex rails are striking; the board gets narrower from the deck downwards…
At first, we weren’t quite sure of what to make of the Ether, except that it clearly excelled for travel and packing up nice and tight. The more we rode the Ether, the more we became connected to this piece of hardware (software?) because its minimal approach to the harness is refreshing. If the conventional harnesses of today ever make you feel like you’re wearing an inflatable donut around your waist, the Ether will take you back to being svelte, slim and minimal.
– THE KITE MAG
It’s simple, clean, and extremely functional. It doesn’t simply look snazzy, the seatbelt system is very satisfying to engage and disengage, and it almost feels like living in the future of harness design. And, of course, it’s strong, safe, and reliable. It’s exciting to see kite brands and accessory brands doing something different, especially if it works. This isn’t a gimmick; it’s a damn cool piece of harness tech that is 100% worth a try!
I’m blown away time and time again by how this little package can deliver such enjoyable sessions. It’s minimalist, compact, comfortable, stylish, and travels like a champion. I’m happy that the simple graphic and minimalist design will be timeless since I plan to be using mine for a long time to come!
