Armstrong Downwind Performance Boards
Shaped for the podium.
Overview

 

The Downwind Performance boards are oriented specifically at expert riders chasing
performance freeride and competitive downwind foiling. Stretched in length and reduced in width, the DWP boards feature an ultralight outer carbon innegra sandwich skin with
our proven double stringer construction for exceptional stiffness and light weight.


The DWP boards incorporate design features that make them ultra efficient at paddling,
popping up and recovering from touchdowns. Their length, paddling speed and tracking
ability help riders get small foils flying with ease. A refined bow shape with a split
foredeck pierce and shed water effortlessly, and the new diamond V tail and increased
tail rocker pop off the water ultra efficiently.


Inspired by the new deck grip design on our Wing FG foilboards, the Downwind and
Downwind Performance boards include a fully redesigned grip tailored specifically to
provide riders with maximum control, comfort and versatility when downwinding. In
conjunction with the flatter deck shape, this grip features raised central bars above the
foil tracks and elevated blocks in each corner of the pad, front and back, for intuitive foot
placement. Boards come with deck grips uninstalled so that riders can finish building
their perfect setup.


Features:

  • Speed and stability: Exceptional paddling speed thanks to a stretched outline and narrow width allows
    riders to get the smallest foils flying. Paddling stability is derived from length that
    minimises bobbing and excellent directional tracking

  • Split Foredeck: Inspired by the Wing FG foilboards, the split anhedral foredeck shape effortlessly sheds water.

  • Refined Bow: Improved paddling efficiency, touchdown recovery, and reduced swing weight for enhanced pumping and carving.

  • Minimal Deck Recess: A flatter deck design adds volume and quickly sheds standing water.

  • New Deck Grip: Featuring raised arch bars and corner blocks inspired by the Wing FG range, providing intuitive foot placement references.

  • Diamond V Tail: All-new tail shape with more rocker and an extra chine for improved takeoff performance and reduced tail touchdowns.

  • Foil Track Placement: Tracks pushed further forward for increased lift and manoeuvrability.

  • Carbon Foil Tracks: Proprietary carbon fibre foil tracks are keyed directly into the fibres of the
    stringers for a fully integrated construction.

  • Proven Construction: Deck to bottom i-beam dual stringers provide maximum structural rigidity and durability.
