FREEDOM FOIL BOARDS DAGGER DOWNWIND BOARD
FFB believes Downwinding is the pinnacle of foiling, and we have been working behind the scenes refining our version of the perfect board for endless downwind SUP journeys. The Dagger is the culmination of prototyping and testing.
Like big wave guns, the Dagger's narrow outline and pulled in pin tail is designed to slice through the water yielding efficient speed and glide. A unique bottom design progresses from a semi displacement hull allowing for low-speed control through chop, then seamlessly transitions to a planning hull for early lift and downwind acceleration. Our unique "T-V Tail" is engineered to assist with momentum when paddle-pumping and to maintain stability through the rails towards the end of the board.
Mastering the matrix known as Downwinding is about as hard as it gets, the Dagger is designed to make your journey a little easier.
Note: Chinook Track Box requires longer track hardware.Transitional Hull DesignA semi displacement hull in the nose assists with control and slicing through chop at low speeds and quickly transitions to a soft edge planning hull and finally transitions to a hard-edge planning hull.Progressive Nose RockerAmple and progressive nose rocker assists with lift and avoidance of contact.Narrow OutlineReduces surface area and drag allowing for the most efficient speed and quick release and lift.TV TailEngineered to allow for frictionless flow and release when paddling while maintaining stability through T rails towards the tail of the board.Progressive V ChineThe chinned rails progress from a soft entry belly in the nose to a sharp V in the tail allowing for slow control in chop and quick release when speed is increased.Curved Top DeckA soft curvature in the front of the top deck helps push water laterally around the nose.
