Neilpryde Glide Surf Foil 2019 (Large)
Here is what Neilpryde have to say about the new 2019 Neilpryde Glide Surf Foil:
GLIDE SURF creates a playground for building new surfing sensations. With a stable and fast take off no matter the surf conditions.
On the wave, easy turns and stable, controllable flight allow you to fly across sections and progress from straight riding to progressive foil-turns. Your imagination is now the only limitation to how you will use the waves and how far you will fly. Superior gliding and controlled speed to ride waves as far as they can flow.
Pump from one wave to the next - see how long you can fly!
GLIDE SURF comes in 3 different complete setups: Large, Medium and Small. In addition, GLIDE SURF Large foil is delivered with 2 Tail wings: Large & Small.
Suitable for strapless windfoiling SUP with a mast foot rig connector. Offers playful sessions to begin windfoiling, cruise around and catch some surf. Using the same foil SUP stance. Allows for the use of extremely small sail sizes and barely hooking into the harness.
Our innovative Top Plate base system integrated in the Aluminium mast and perfectly blended fuselage offers the best connection for your surf and SUP boards. Plug and Play.

New CNC reinforced base construction. Two deep vertical tube connections to the mast for maximum strength, eliminating movement and offering perfect load transfer. Avoids vibration around the upper attachment area. GLIDE SURF foil comes with Top Plate base system.
x18 M8 titanium plated Stainless Steel bolts for maximum strength to weight ratio while preventing any corrosion problems. All using T-40 Torx drive, delivered with the product.
TAIL WING ADJUSTMENT
Delivers inverted thrust to balance the main wing and maintain easy control and stability. Foil is perfectly trimmed for average weight rider (75- 80kg) with tail in neutral position. Heavier riders, especially in light winds or during the learning process might prefer slightly more stabilizing force that a down tilted rear wing provides. Also, this down-angled position increases low-end power and lift of the foil. At the same time lighter riders, especially in strong wind conditions, may benefit from a drag and lift reduction by reducing the downwards tilt angle of the rear wing. Less down-angle will reduce the differential angle between the two wings and make the foil feel less draggy in the water, resulting in the fastest possible foiling sensation.
60 cm Aluminium mast. Optimized structure with two CNC female base system inserts ensuring maximum strength. Hollow construction to reduce weight combined with x3 vertical cross-ribs for maximum stiffness. Sanded mast trailing edge to avoid planning turbulence noise. Tempered, salt water corrosion resistant 6061-T6 aluminium.
Perfectly blended wing to CNC machined fuselage connection and integrated wind saddle providing minimum drag. Volume and weight of the aluminium used in fuselage is reduced by eliminating the forward protruding nose.
GLIDE SURF pre-preg carbon layup with inner foam construction for maximum durability to weight ratio. Front wings span, Large: 86cm / Medium: 75cm and Small: 64cm. Tail wing span, Large: 51cm / Tail wing span, Small: 40cm.
GLIDE wings setup creates a natural tendency to roll into turns maintaining a nice balance during your ride. The Front wing is designed with a pronounced rounded Angle of attack and an elliptical bend shape. While flying, this thick leading edge on the front wing naturally closes the radius of your turn, tightening it. Far back, the angled down tail wings maintain a self-stabilizing roll allowing an easy turning performance. During this momentum, the GLIDE tail wing persists always want to come back to a flat position and cancelling the turning radius.
