As for its intended use, the 1500 seems like a top choice for wingsurfing and prone foilsurfing, but it would probably also be a fun wing for carve and wave-focused kitefoilers. We didn’t get a complete sense of the 1500’s foilsurfing pumping drive, but our feeling is that for foilsurfers looking to connect waves with pump-backs, the 1500 will keep the party going if you start with high-speed, but the Phantom line of wings may offer better pure pump performance. The 1500 is probably perfect for small and medium-sized riders, but bigger riders will want to move up in size to the 1800. Beginners will do fine on the 1500 but can always consider starting with the older stabilizer for extra directional stability. One thing is for sure—the new Gravity 1500 fills an important hole in the Gravity line, and along with the new stabilizer, we’d consider it a landmark addition to the Gravity offering. In terms of size and spot-on performance, we’d put the 1500 on our top list to demo when thinking about your next wingsurfing or prone surfing foil.

F-One have really stepped up their hydrofoil game for 2017 and they were pretty devoted to it last year too. They now offer a huge range of foils not just for kitesurfing, but also for SUP and windsurfing! The Freeride 90/800 set up is an easy to use platform that has been designed to offer enough performance to keep you interested for a long period of time, while still being very forgiving.
