The Foil Slate is a top choice of the riders and the most flexible board in the market at the same time! For this reason, our shape was awarded the “SUP Paddlesports of the Year 2020” at the PaddleExpo 2020, the biggest trade fair of paddle sports in the world. Werner Gnigler created this great shape for those who wanted to have an all-in-one water sports board. Please note: SUP Foil, SUP Surf Foil, SUP Downwind Foil, Wing Foil, Windsurf Foil, SUP Surf, SUP, Wing Surf and who knows what else can be tried with the Foil Slate!
Stable, fast and reactive are the main strengths of the Foil Slates. Use the extra speed to glide across flat sections of the wave or to hit the lip with full power. The bottom shape features a V entry that flows into a deep single concave ending with a subtle V right at the center fin position. This ensures a smooth lift and an easy rail-to-rail transfer.
Two US long track boxes are available for Foil sports, allowing different foil positions based on the rider skills. On the other hand, the traditional 3-finboxes set should be used for Stand-Up Paddling.

For 15 years I worked for F2 and shaped many popular boards like the Comet Slalom or the Xantos ranges. Since 2000 I am with JP and am responsible for the whole board and fin range. It is always a great feeling when one of my boards like the Freestyle Wave turns out to be a test winner and becomes a successful best seller. Especially when you see happy people on the water with this board.”
Philosophy: do not be too serious, just go windsurfing
“I often get asked how we can come up with new products every year. Some people are suspicious and believe it is all about marketing and nothing is really new. The truth is, I learn something new with every single prototype I build and test. Sometimes it amazes me what big effects small changes can have and that allows us to improve the boards again and again. That’s driving me, as I know there is always room for improvement.”
