Foiling has evolved into a completely unique way to enjoy the ocean over the past few years, and the best equipment is evolving with it. Adam Bennett’s is one of the world’s leading exponents – bringing surf inspired lines and turn angles to foiling, while finding new levels of speed and distance covered.
Adam’s natural talent combined with his sheer dedication and time in the water has resulted in an extensive R&D process to refine the next generation of foil boards. Throughout this process, his favorites were narrower overall with a new flyer to reduce width even further through the back 1/3 of the board. This allows more angle lean in turns without catching the rails on the surface of the water… And in his words, “now my turns have never looked and felt so smooth.”
We built the Mister Bennett’s foil board to be as stiff as possible, ensuring all of your energy is transferred directly to the foil without losing force due to board flex. 100% carbon construction combined with twin stringers serve this purpose perfectly, while also keeping the board super light for effortless lift out of the water.
The twin stringers also reinforce the entire board for added strength, particularly around the futures single fin boxes holding the foil in place. A flat deck with a chine rail and deep double concave in the nose stops the board sticking to the water whenever it touches back down.
Additionally, this early double concave acts as two channels, helping you paddle straight, pop up and get to wave speed quickly. Remember – when sizing your foil board, similar to regular surfing, riding shorter boards makes turning much easier. As you become more comfortable, all you need is enough volume to float you comfortably, but initially, a few more liters will help with paddle power and stability.
