The Armstrong Downwind Performance Foil range is bred for the raw energy of 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 podiumfinisher 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.
"These foils have a speed like nothing else I have ridden. They have a low enough stall speed for getting on foil, but then have an incredibly high top end that allows you to ride the fast open ocean swells. The foils also have a very neutral front and back foot pressure that doesn’t change with different speeds, giving a comfortable feeling at high speeds.” Oskar Johanssson, 2023 Molokai2Oahu SUP Foil 2nd Place
ACCESS ULIMATE SPEED
The product of cutting edge hydrodynamics and foil technology.
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.
Our Performance Series represents the pinnacle of Armstrong foiling equipment.
Created to push boundaries in design process and material selection, these products invite advanced riders on a truly next-level riding experience.
