How to choose your board
For the 2023 collection, Turtle Wing R&D team worked extensively on finding the perfect balance between volume and size.
A board needs just enough volume to float, but not too much so it doesn’t hamper the take-off, turning abilities, speed, and overall session.
We focused on improving the strength and stiffness of our boards, as the sport is progressing rapidly.
Riders are pushing the sport more to the limit, by jumping higher and make new moves, so we needed our boards to be up to par with these new standards.
We decide to help you with a small guide for choosing your next Turtle Wing board.
It is important to keep in mind, that your decision depends on your skill level, your weight and your usual riding conditions
As a rule of thumb for wing foiling, your weight and level determine which volume is best for you.
These guidelines can steer you in the right direction:
Your Weight + 40L.
For example, if you weight 70kg and want to learn the sport, then you may want to go for a Carve Pro V3 103-109-119L or In general, beginners should look at boards with a volume of 100L and above.
Your Weight = Volume.
Once you have a good handle on your wing and foil, the volume of your board can roughly match your weight.
If you’re 60kg, then most of our smaller Carve Pro V3, Carve Mini Pro or Carve Mini Pro LTD, board range will fit your needs, depending on your program.
These boards will bring confidence and control, and will allow you to continuously improve.
Weight – 15L on.
As you improve, reducing the volume of your board gives you more maneuverability, responsiveness, and speed. The sky is the limit.
