Case study

The pictures tell you a recent story in simplified graphics. Note the fast speed of the windsurfer with FRPGear hydrofoil Fly-Fin, while the same windsurfer with a traditional fin can not even go. The secret of this dramatic difference is FRPGear Fly-Fin.

FRPGEAR Fly-Fin and traditional fin perform very similar during strong wind.

You can see on this picture Fly-Fin lifts the whole board up (not just the behind of the board). Water meets the Fly-Fin equipped board behind the mast—similar to the traditional fin board on the right. Notice that Fly-Fin sailor is standing in front of the foot straps. This indicates that Fly-Fin board goes faster with the wind and the sail feels light. 20 knots wind for Fly-Fin equipped board feels like 15 knots for a traditional fin board.

The wind died very fast when the traditional fin windsurfer was about a mile away.

Traditional fin makes it very difficult to go upwind if not on planing.

FRPGEAR’s Fly-Fin keeps you sailing well up wind at any wind speed.

The traditional fin sailor is walking back to the beach and fly-fin sailor is planing.

It is a good idea to have Fly-Fin while on vacation so you can have more planing days when vacation time is limited.

It is a good idea for windsurfing rentals to offer Fly-Fins in order to do more rental business during light-wind seasons.

Fly-Fin equipped windsurfer is faster compare to a kite foiler.

The sailor who goes home is using a traditional fin. The sailor who keeps planing is using Fly-Fin.

No need to use different boards for different wind conditions. Just use different Fly-Fins with your smallest board for better results.

Sailors who cannot get on planing are wondering why is one windsurfer still planing fast. People in the car cannot see Fly-Fin.

Fly-Fin looks simple but it took over 40 years to make it work right.
