What riders say

"With this set up you can go out in like zero winds" - Jalou Langeree

No limits

Our fully customisable Sonar 85cm mast setup performs across all disciplines and offers you more ride height to clear waves or to heel over for tighter turns. It is also more forgiving in rougher conditions. Engineered to last, with exceptional strength to weight ratio, and our unique GeoLock system for a clean, direct feel with minimum resistance on the water. Ride in comfort and control, making use of the fully interchangeable Sonar Foil System to extend your playtime on the water. Simply choose the Sonar Front Wing best suited to your needs to complete your setup. (Sonar Front Wing, Foil Board and foil to board attachment hardware sold separately).

85cm Aluminium Mast

Ideal for Freeride foiling and tow-surfing, the 85cm Mast increases overall ride performance in choppy conditions. This Mast length is perfect to heel over more, fly the kite lower and further power up the foil system for a more controlled high speed ride. Precisely CNC-machined from 6061-T6 anodised aeronautical-grade aluminium for minimum resistance, with structurally engineered connections for an exceptional strength to weight ratio.

GeoLock

Engineered to last, our unique GeoLock tapered geometry locking system provides a more effective load-bearing connection between the Mast and Fuselage, locking them together, so they feel like one piece. Screws engage the GeoLock while load transfer now takes place over the full cross-section of the mast profile, allowing for a more efficient load transfer and longer-lasting connection.

Hydrodynamic Carbon Stabilizer

In perfect harmony with any Front Wing, our dihedral-shaped rear Stabilizer provides control and riding comfort, allowing fast pivoting turns and easy surface breach-recovery. The Stabilizer's positioning on top of the Fuselage allows for a clean, undisturbed approaching flow. Surface piercing of the Stabilizer is not a problem, as the Front Wing sits deeper in the water and is still fully submerged, giving you that extra time to react and adjust your ride height.

Master new manoeuvres

Amazing top end and bottom end speed, yet playful and forgiving, pair the Sonar 850 Front Wing with your Sonar 85 Edition for the ultimate kitefoiling experience.

Board Adaptor

The Sonar Foil System is connected to the board by a lightweight CNC-machined aluminium Board Adaptor with a tapered geometry locking connection that engages with the mast. Fusing Board Adaptor and mast together to build one union for optimum load transfer and a stronger, more direct feeling and steering impulse when foiling.

165x90mm bolt pattern

The Sonar Foil System can be mounted to any foil board with a 165x90mm bolt pattern.

Fuselage AF600

CNC-machined anodised aeronautical grade 6061-T6 aluminum Fuselage. Hydrodynamically optimised shape for minimum resistance.

Modular foil system

Customise your ride with our fully interchangeable foil parts to explore multiple disciplines and riding styles all with one setup.

Reviews

Review by KiteWorld Magazine: Sonar Foil System

"What impressed me was the stability. Once dialled in, you can power the foil up and learn to push the foil for more speed when you’re ready.”
- Jim Gaunt

Review by The Kiteboarder: North 2020 Sonar Freeride Edition

"The Sonar [85 Edition with 850 wing] finds a true balance between solid high-end speed, endorphin generating high speed carves and all-around user-friendly handling for a finely tuned freeride foil package."
