AXIS has offices in Maui and New Zealand, and under the guidance of Adrian Roper, the design crew has come up with some amazing products that are changing the industry. The AXIS Foils division has been created to focus on the foiling disciplines of Kite, SUP, Surf, Wave, Wind, and Pump. It's still in its early stages - who knows where Surf and SUP hyrdrofoiling is headed? We want to go there and take you with us!
There are currently five different setups with the following wing spans: 68/75/82/92/102 cm. Adrian has analyzed the requirements of surf/SUP foiling and discovered that the weakness of all current other designs was flexibility of the board to foil connection and especially the wings to the fuselage and the fuselage to the mast. Adrian's mast/wing/board connection is the stiffest, strongest and most durable on the market today.
Generally used with a 60 or 75cm mast, but some riders are using 90cm too, which we do have in stock normally. Tuttle box board adapters are available too. Wings are high modulus carbon over CNC shaped Pawlonia, with an ABS insert to isolate the carbon from the alloy fuselage.
Our most popular wings for riding waves with surfboards are 68/75/82cm and 92cm, most popular mast is 75cm, and for SUP 60 or 75cm.
HOW TO BUY YOUR AXIS FOILS
- First, you pick up the Rear Wing Box (That contains all you will need EXCEPT the front Wing and the Mast). The 50 Rear Wing is better for the larger front Wings and SUP foiling, while the 44 Rear Wing is ideal for the smaller front wings, for a looser feel and quicker turns.
- Then select the Front Wing(s) you want. We have detailed specific use and recommendation in the front wing section.
- Finally you select the Mast size(s). 60cm is a great beginner mast size - as you get better you should consider 68cm or 75cm for the S-Series Foils.
