Avanti sier selv
Man has dreamed of flight for eons
Avanti is proud to offer a product painstakingly developed to bring you ever closer to the limitless realm of our feathered friends. We know riding a foil is special. Some compare the feeling to floating in bottomless powder. Others marvel at the efficiency of slicing smoothly above a turbulent sea. After years of development, and backed by a deep history in foil-bourne craft, Avanti is proud to finally release ICARUS… and it’s EPIC.
The Icarus focuses on the concpet of using a minimal sail size for maximum delivery. The foiling revolution has us sailing in lighter winds than ever before, and through design, we can now do this with smaller sail sizes than ever imagined. The Icarus features a relatively narrow mid-wdith sock, and a skeleton lightly balanced on Avanti Arc Cambers for super easy rotation. True shaping carries a solid 3/4 of the way up the planform. The the tighter twist flow and short boom length work in harmony to deliver unmatched drive per square meter, without excessive back-hand pressure.
My personal background in foiling gave me an edge in approaching ICARUS. There is a lot of history from which I have pulled ideas. In boardsports, my first blush with bulky aluminum foils dates back decades. More recently I became obsessed with the moth dinghy and kite foil setups. We are really excited to take all those hard earned lessons of apparent-wind sailing from our whole team and pour them into a windsurf sail which is truly special.
