Imagine a foil that is stable and lifts you at low speed so you can succeed all your transitions or tricks, a foil that glides and can accelerate so you can race you mates for short moment, before you bank on a nice wave to lay a perfect turn. This foil is the Mirage foil.
The Phantom seems like a great option for wingsurfers who are looking for a little more low-end foil-up speed and some extra stability when up and riding. We’d also choose the Phantom for prone and SUP foilsurfing, specifically for the purpose of bumping up our pump game to get back to the top of the reef. The Phantom creates a ton of drive on pumps that help you stay on foil while looking for the next wave or swell to lock into. For wingsurfers, it’s the same game and the Phantom helps you find that energy and creates drive that will help you stay in the glide zone longer. Overall, the Phantom is a very important and timely addition to the F-One lineup with its super drivey and stable ride matched with lightweight but stiff appendages that deliver the perfect high-performance user experience.

Designed for the wandering spirits who express themselves with passion.
“Undoubtedly a collective achievement, it was also a great personal investment. And it’s a special feeling to see such a wide range of products sharing the same design approach and serving so many sports and styles with the experience of foiling as common ground. Our foils have never been so easy, intuitive and rewarding to use. I’m proud of what we’ve done here.”
The Gravity series of wings in the 1800 and 2200 sizes are ideal options for the new sport of wingsurfing. Both wings feature a carbon fiber fuselage that bolts together with Torx head bolts for easy assembly and mates with an aluminum mast. The construction brings together an excellent blend between stiffness for crisp performance and robust lifting wings with a nice medium weight. The Gravity 2200 is the big gun that offered the lowest foil-up speed and the most amount of lift. We’d recommend the 2200 for bigger riders that need extra help getting lift-off, and to riders that are challenged by lower wingsurfing wind conditions. If we had a low volume prone board and lighter wind conditions, the 2200 would be very helpful for getting a sinking board up onto plane and in the air. Average-sized riders may find that the 2200’s lift is excessive and might spend more energy trying to keep the wing in the water while trying to ride waves, yet bigger riders will enjoy every bit of that lift.
The Gravity 1800 seemed like the perfect wing for wingsurfing with a nice slow foil-up speed that promoted easy waterstarts and allows you to carve as tight as a turn as you’d like in the pocket of windswell. What we really liked about the 1800 was its higher top-end speed that allowed us to keep up with the faster swells when the larger of the two Gravity wings couldn’t. The 1800 has a really nice foil-up speed with smooth lift delivery, meaning that as you approach lift-off the wing generates lift evenly and intuitively. The foil-down speed was slow enough that we never had trouble stalling or slowing it down for a tight snap off the lip while riding swell. The 1800 is the perfect size for most small and middle-sized wingsurfers looking for the widest spectrum of performance.
