What riders say

"Extremely intuitive - first try felt like I've been riding on it for years." - Jesse Richman

Feel at one

Kite foil in comfort and control, making use of the fully interchangeable Sonar Foil System to extend your playtime on the water. 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. The Kite Edition with 70cm Mast provides you with the ideal mast, fuselage and stabilizer for learning to kite-foil or kite-foiling in shallow waters. The 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. 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).

70cm or 85cm Aluminium Kite Mast

Precisely CNC-machined from 6061-T6 anodised aeronautical-grade aluminium for minimum resistance, with structurally engineered connections for an exceptional strength to weight ratio. The AK70 Mast provides is ideal for learning to kite-foil or kite-foiling in shallow waters. The AK85 mast 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.

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 the load transfer now takes place over the full cross-section of the mast profile, allowing for a more efficient load distribution and longer-lasting connection.

Easy Surface Breach Recovery

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.

Pump and Play

Combine the Sonar AK70 Kite Edition with the 1150 Front Wing for a loose and carvy feeling with early takeoff, so you are up and riding sooner.

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.

Industry-standard 165x90mm bolt pattern

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

Fuselage 600mm

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.

Supplied with Sonar Travel Bag

Stow your Sonar Quiver safely in between sessions with our Heavy Duty 600D Padded Travel Bag. Roomy enough inside to fit the complete Sonar Foil set, including all three wings and three masts inside their individual covers. The bag also has enough depth to leave the Board Adaptor connected to the mast, making your foil packdown faster. Designed with straps, clips and interior pockets to secure contents. Your worry-free travel companion. Included with every complete Foil Edition.

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: Sonar Foil Unboxing

"The thing that really stands out, is how carvy and agile it is because of the short fuselage. It doesn't take a lot of energy to pump, it carves really easily so makes it an excellent surfing foil." - Gunnar Biniasch

Review by The Kiteboarder: North 2020 Sonar Freeride Edition

"The Sonar 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."
