Our Downwind Performance foilrange is bred for the raw energyof deepwater offshore swell.
The first foils in our new Armstrong Performance Series, the Downwind range was specifically developed to race in the SUP downwind division across Hawaii’s interisland channels.
Already a proven Molokai2Oahu World Championship podium-finisher under the feet of team rider Oskar Johansson, the DW Performance range is tailored for expert level SUP downwind aficionados seeking next level
freedom in open water.
“They have a low enough stall speed for getting on foil,but then have an incredibly high top end that allows youto ride the fast open ocean swells. The foils also have avery neutral front and back foot pressure that doesn’tchange with different speeds, giving a comfortablefeeling at high speeds.” - Oskar Johansson2023 Molokai2OahuSUP Foil 2nd Place.
Access ultimate speed
The product of cutting edgehydrodynamics and foiltechnology.
Project development began with collecting waveform and real-world riding data from Hawaii’s interisland channels to set specific design parameters. Leading fluid dynamics (CFD) resources helped optimise a foil shape that had extreme glide with accessible low end flight speeds for race starts in milder conditions. The result offers incredible top end potential and remarkable stability that only feels better as riding speed increases.
The A+ System is our proprietary foil assembly design thatjoins the mast, fuselage, front foil and stabiliser togetherfor a solid and smooth feeling on the water.DW PERFORMANCE FRONT FOIL5PRODUCT RELEASEThe ultimate modular foilassembly system.Hexagonal carbon fibre fuselage with a titaniumrod core has progressive flex qualities that balancestiffness with a uniquely smooth feel underfoot.Minimises flex from the extreme torsional forcesproduced by high aspect foils.Premium 316 steel and titanium hardware eliminatescorrosion and provides a naturally snug fit, no tef gelrequired.Polycarbonate Pro shims allow for half degreeincremental changes to stabiliser pitch for incrediblyeasy tuning of the foil’s flight characteristics.
