The dream has now become reality. You are going to discover a new way of sailing... Flying over the water!
More than three years of study, development and fine-tuning were necessary to design the SELECT windfoil.
Included: select Alu 1060 fuselage!
With the SELECT / ProFOIL.F1 windfoil, It is now possible to fly starting at 7 knots of wind !
The SELECT windfoil is the culmination of the work of 2 teams: SELECT and TAAROA which have already developed the most efficient kitefoils in the world.
The SWORD 2 has become the absolute reference in its field: both easy and efficient. This new concept of foil has
revolutionized the possibility of sailing in fair weather. It covers wide ranges of wind conditions with suitable wings
The recent developments that have made the release of the new SWORD RS possible have proven that our databases
could bring a real advantage for making a latest generation windfoil: The SELECT ProFoil.F1
The ProFOIL.F1, is the modern version of the windfoil.
To achieve this, we have developed the construction of all the components of a foil designed for windsurfing: much
more rigid and more solid as a simple extrapolation inspired by a kitefoil.
The construction of a windfoil is extremely complex and high-tech. Because of the considerable forces at work, all
components require perfect development, production and skill.
The ProFOIL.F1 is a concentrate of our expertise in hydrodynamics and the use of composite materials. It has been
developed and manufactured as a real piece of aeronautics.
Designed with rigour and without any concession from the quality that has made the reputation of SELECT / SM COMPOSITE.
Maximum Performance for light wind
A locked mast / fuselage assembly :
The mast and the fuselage are the structure of the foil. The quality of these two parts is of paramount importance for
obtaining the best performance of the front wing and the stabilizer.
The composite structure must be as elaborate as possible to hold the twisting and bending. This is the essential
condition to gain stability on all axes, which will determine the ease of control and performance on all points of sail.
Low drag :
The minimal drag of the ProFOIL.F1 is the component for which nothing is left to chance.
The choice of the mast profile, the shape of the fuselage and especially the recess of the wings and stabilizers are
without equivalent compared with other foils on the market.
Perfect surfaces :
The preparation of the surfaces is the condition of the performance of all wings, mast and fuselage. Each piece is
sanded in five steps to achieve the best factor of water on water gliding.
Our parts are bare, without primer, without paint or varnish which impose an unnecessary load and often conceal
