Armstrong 's NEW AND INNOVATIVE “FORWARD GEOMETRY” WING SURF BOARD DESIGNS, HIGHLIGHT THE DRIVE AND PASSION Armstron has TO ALWAYS BE IMPROVING AND MAXIMIZING THE POTENTIAL OF EVERY RIDE! The logic behind Forward Geometry is all about the mast track position in relation to the center of the board. The further forward the mast can go the better, it improves maneuverability, response and dramatically reduces the rotational swing weight effect. Combine this with state-of-the-art 320mm Carbon fiber A+System Mast Tracks and you have maximum potential to get your board and foils geometry working for you!
Without question, shorter boards offer superior maneuverability, feel and control once on the fly but getting them there is not so easy. Until now that is, as boards get shorter it becomes important to maximise stability and hull speed when still attached to the water. The new Forward Geometry shapes from Armstrong have addressed this issue with a beautiful innovative approach enabling everyone to take advantage of the benefits riding shorter boards. The new Forward Geometry range of boards are packed full of innovation. Forward Geometry… Armstrong's new A+System Mast Tracks are positioned well forward in the board to reduce rotational swing weight which radically improves handling and response. High strength custom Carbon fiber A+System Mast Tracks… Plastic simply does not do the job well enough, so they designed their own 320mm Carbon Fiber mast tracks. Recessed deck… This brings you closer to the mast top for direct handling and feel. Through deck carry handle/water evacuation… Easy to carry top or bottom, the through board handle is also the water evacuation for the recessed deck. Extended waterline profile view… Speed is the key, so Armstrong uses all the boards waterline to help accelerate the board forward. Chisel-nose outline… Offers stability on the water and helps push the water under the board rather than splitting it around the board.
Aggressive nose rocker into an accentuated double concave to flat… This is all about bringing the nose up quickly to accelerate the water down the double concave to flat bottom at the tail. Innovative tail shape… For better acceleration, less drag at the rear waterline release area, it looks faster because it is! Accentuated chines… As the board picks up speed and the foil starts to lift, the contact area reduces, making for a smooth transition from on the water to foiling and also seamless touchdowns as the board does not grab as it touches the water’s surface. Stable Volume distribution… The recessed deck, wide Chisel nose and relatively rectangular outline means we can push the volume to the extremities, makes for a stable platform when on the water. Light and strong… Lightweight is nothing without strength so Armstrong chose the best materials to keep the boards both light and strong. Foam core with multiple PVC reinforcements, Dual Carbon stingers, covered with Carbon fiber and Dyneema cloth.
The Armstrong HEX Fuselage is a ground breaking work of art in terms of engineering and design.
The fuselage has a solid Titanium core running throughout its length. The core is then shrouded in 5mm solid wall Carbon tube.The multi wing HEX fitting for the mast and front wing gives 360 degree surface contact, maximising the load distributing area.
This unique fuselage construction easily handles the highly leveraged opposing flex loads as the mast and wings are directly keyed into the Titanium core,takingyour ride to the next level.
The HS1125 can be ridden to good effect, the turning radius is surprisingly good for is high aspect ratio. The sleek, inflected tips help prevent ventilation even if a tip breaches. It’s next level pump and glide make it easy to double dip! For experienced wingers there is no comparison. It makes tacking fun and easy as the glide gives you so much time to complete maneuvers like 360’s. Combine this with amazing upwind angles and outrageous downwind glide, as well as freakish light wind performance and the riding it just never stops. We recommend the setup below, much depends on rider weight, ability and chosen foil sports.
Tail Wing: Flying V
The Armstrong HA925 just happens to be a magic number, the surface area, section thickness and planform give this wing something very special. We had no idea that a HA wing would ever be so effective in the surf, prone or Sup! It has mind blowing carving turns or snaps, stability at speed and phenomenal glide so linking or double dipping is easy! For the performance winger the HA925 just keeps on going and flowing! Crank upwind, catch a micro bump for miles or edge hard and send it, the speed this thing generates sends you up with Branson and Basos! If you need a glide for Pump or Downwinding then there will be no disappointment here, this wing has the glide of an albatross.

Put your Axis Foil together the way you want it. Choose your front wing, rear wing, mast length, doodad to attach the alloy mast to the fuselage (not needed for carbon masts), fuselage size and mounting system.
Axis foil masts. Individual alloy masts of various lengths to suit Axis Foils.
Designed for the AXIS S-Series and K-Series Foils the AXIS masts are stiff, strong, and ready for any use and conditions. We designed our masts for 2019 to give our foilersa very direct feeling to their foil which is critical for foiling. We even sourced our own high quality aluminium and bought tons of it, to ensure we only have the highest quality raw materials for our foils. Our K/Series masts are 224% stiffer than the 15mm thick masts (most other foils on the market). It's even stiffer than any carbon mast on the market today. This gives you more control and fast input from your feet to the front wing.
Composite structure, thinner at the bottom thicker at the top for chord progression. Snappier feel in carbon verses aluminium.
