MODEL K FOIL
X-over Freeride Foil
Designed for improving (capable of making 50m or more foiling runs) to advanced foilers, extremely well suited for transitions, tight carving, strapless and all round freeriding
Speed range, stability, great pitch control and amazing carving. It reads like a shopping list for your next foil but the new Model K really does do it all. Inspired by the need for a foil to fill the gap between the impossibly easy to learn on P foil and high-speed Model F, the Model K represents our vision for the perfect x-over, multi-purpose foil.
Are you riding your Shinn Model P with ease but not looking to make life hard for yourself by moving onto a high speed, high technique dependant free race foil? The Model K was developed with “2nd season” foilers in mind and was designed to ensure your progression remains as fast and as painless (or painful ha!) as your first season on the Model P was. Impressive low speed starting and a high angle of attack stall resistance means you don’t need the footwork of a ballerina to master the tricky footswitches required for flying tacks and gybes and yet lock it down and pour on the power and the Model K accelerates and tracks assuredly with a feeling more often associated with high-performance race or free-race foils (which most foilers will never want).
Strapless action, light wind cruising, transition mastery – massive functional speed range and easy pitch control make the Model K perfect to fulfill the needs of even the most advanced foilers looking for something other than just flat out speed.
