ON THE WATER
This foil just throws you up in the air and is super pumpable, we loved the instant lift from the Neilpryde Surf Glide. Once up and foiling the wide rear wing gives massive stability and a really secure ride. Changing to the smaller rear wing give a sharper faster ride which loves to turn. Once you gain confidence on with the foil it gives great control, a light weight feel and power to ride or pump across the flattest of sections. The superb foil is a must in your quiver, great to get you up and riding and drives speed through your turns which will make you push harder and ride waves for longer.
This foil is easy to use, super lifty and feels light and agile, the whole package is perfectly finished with titanium and alloy chunky fittings (which will corrode less), the light carbon wings are interchangeable with the rest of Neilpryde’s foiling gear and also can but bought with DT head if required. Make no mistake this is a top draw foil at a bargain price, we loved the foil, finish, weight and the two rear wings. A great foil at a very aggressive price, don’t hesitate, they’ll go up sooner or later.
