Imagine a dedicated surf foiling wing, that lets you foil waves like a surfer would. If you’re anything like us, you’ve been dreaming of an effortless turning wing, that inspires confidence when dropping in, that has a gentle, predictable easy lift up onto foil. A foil that not only handles breaches but encourages them. No wave is the same, sometimes you need a turn of speed, and on another you need to slow right down but stay on foil. A wing you can just forget about and get on with the business of enjoying yourself. Of course, that wing has to be capable of pumping you back out to do it all again and again. The wait is over, meet the AXIS Spitfire.
You’ll recognise it by its distinctive elliptical outline, straight median line and lack of aggressive turndown through the tips. Moderate chord lengths, that taper smoothly from the centre to the tips, encourage smooth, predictable but precise turning. Reduced foil thickness for enhanced top end to complement the greater chords providing easy low end.
Many of these attributes are shared by the ARTPRO Range of wings, and in fact much of what we learned in the development of that line fed into the Spitfire’s make-up.
Through the development process, we put the Spitfire through its paces, The smaller sizes are fast with explosive turning. The larger sizes are great for smaller spots and larger riders. The Spitfires are versatile front wings, able to ride waves or flat water across prone, SUP, winging, wake, downwind, lake and kite foiling disciplines. They do it all.
Spitfire foils are ideally matched with our Advance fuselage and Progressive or Skinny rear wing ranges.
Spitfire 1180 (New - Available to Pre-order Now)
The Spitfire 1180 is the result of extensive development to bring a bigger Spitfire to market for the big guys and those riders whose local spots offer more marginal conditions. Spitfire 1180 diverges from the rest of the Spitfire family with an increased camber of 2.75% (More curve that creates lift. The other Spitfires and ART PRO’s are 2.5%) - the result:
• A very well-balanced foil,
• foils up easily and feels comfortable immediately,
• lift distribution is equal at speed and during acceleration,
• a quick and predictable recovery from breaches and tip-outs,
• turns very nicely and smoothly,
• has remarkable low-end and prolonged slower-paced glide.
The Spitfire 1180 is a great wing for those getting into down-winding. It doesn’t need to run as fast as the ART PRO 1201 or 1401 making it easy to stay on the bump. Turning and control are amazing for such a large wing, making downwind riding achievable for almost everyone. We feel it’s exactly the right time for this foil, offering a less torturous in-road on the downwind journey.
As a dock and pump wing, the Spitfire 1180 is easy and forgiving to start, fun and surprisingly nimble to play with, and as such, is rapidly becoming a favourite among our dock starting and pump team riders.
The Spitfire 1180 is a light-wind wing foiling and small/weak wave SUP weapon. It has easy lift and is user-friendly, it shares the same easy predictable nature that has made the rest of the Spitfire range so popular in all disciplines, and now the bigger guys can enjoy them too.
For the wake crew, the Spitfire 1180 can ride any wake from the 1st to the 10th and will be a go-to for the larger guys.
Spitfire 720 (NEW)
This small high-performance surf wing bridges the gap between prone foil and tow foil. A wing that gives you full confidence to charge the bigger, steeper waves and execute surfing manoeuvres in critical parts of the waves that were previously not possible on a foil board. It has predictable rail-to-rail behaviour allowing you to input much more energy into your carves than ever before. The Spitfire 720 is also designed for high-performance, full-powered wingfoiling, suitable for both the waves and freestyle. Our kite foil testers are raving about it too
Spitfire foils are ideally matched with our Black Advance fuselage and Progressive or Skinny rear wing ranges.
