The Manta always finds room in the back of my van for when there is the slightest bump or when its firing. The Manta, while primarily a surf foil board, is also a lot of fun on shorter downwind runs. This board however, is designed to catch waves and swells that are not ideal for traditional surfing.
In Hawaii we have a lot of trade winds which can make for messy wave conditions, but with the Manta foil board, you don’t have to miss a day on the water. This board pops up on foil, glides on low energy swell and can carve up a storm of its own. Call the Manta your ‘daily driver.’
This board is stable and has enough length, volume and glide to lift you up out to foil in the big blue, yet has a low enough swing weight that you can also drop in, kick out, and pump your board back out to the lineup for another ride.
The Manta Surf Foil (SF2) 6’0″ x 28.5″ comes with:
– SUPER FLY 2 (Carbon-Kevlar PVC Sandwich)
– Double slotted Futures fin box tracks (9cm spacing) for plate mount system
– High density foam reinforcement around all boxes
– Foot strap inserts, dual leash plug
– Diamond grooved deck pad with kick tail
SF2 – Full PVC Sandwich with Co-Woven Kevlar/Carbon – SIC’s highest end foil construction with a full PVC sandwich wrapping the EPS core (top, bottom, 360 degree rails) for a light, stiff and very durable construction. The board is wrapped in co-woven kevlar/carbon weave as foiling introduces new challenges in terms of to take load from the foil and the impact from the paddle. This construction address weight, strength and durability like few if any other boards on the market. These boards are molded to ensure great lamination strength and that every board is precisely like the master shaped by Mark Raaphorst.
