We started off with a compact outline and forward foil placement that reduces swing weight and provides precise foil control. Key to the design was a shallow concave rail chine that made the board both easy to climb onto as well as float on while waiting for the next gust. Because touchdowns happen no matter your skill level and a nice smooth deflection is a benefit to all riders, we added an extra touch of nose rocker to help you bounce back up onto foil. The list of features on the Wing Raider XL V1 is extensive, aimed to facilitate the pursuit of progression for every level rider. After a few sessions on a Wing Raider XL V1 we know you'll come to enjoy the full gambit of wing-specific utility.
