With travel in mind, bolting wings on and off makes for a more compact foil. The kit comes with your choice of Pan Head or Countersunk bolts. Pan Head bolts (shown on black) are easiest to install and the safer option; Countersunk bolts (shown on white) sit flush with the board. Please note that at foil cruising speeds there is no perceptible difference between the two bolt types.
Built to Travel
The Bolt On Conversion Hardware combines the classic design of the Standard Foil with the portability of removable wings. Although hydrofoils are sleek and nimble in the water, they are an awkward shape to transport from your house to the beach. Having the ability to remove the wings makes packing much easier. These five high-end metal inserts are the optimal size to epoxy into your fuselage. Your choice of stainless bolts can screw your wings onto the fuselage with ease. A few extra minutes of drilling results in a much more portable foil!
