 Wings have been around for a while, however, with the evolution of surf foiling they finally offer a totally new way to enjoy the ocean.

The original Duotone Foil Wing was in development for a couple of years, and the design team tested countless prototypes in order to create the perfect shape.
Version two – THE ECHO increased performance, stability & packed down smaller.
Version three – THE SLICK . Taking all the lessons from previous models, the changes are:

  • The all-new Slick is designed around the Mini Boom concept, this offers some unique advantages over other wings on the market.

  • The new Mini Boom:

    • This system gives you all the control of a boom, along with all the benefits of a centre strut.

    • You get improved control over the profile and luffing stability, plus a much more integrated connection to the wing itself through the Mini Boom.

    • Mini boom – One size fits all the wings.

    • Mini boom – choose between aluminium or carbon booms.

  • Dihedral angles on wings are critical,the team spent a long time working out the best angle to offer the maximum stability when riding using the front handle.

  • The canopy tension has been tuned to offer the maximum power with an absolute minimum of flutter.

  • The window shape has also been refined to provide unrivalled visibility without making it larger than it needs to be.

  • Reduced wing-span. The overall wing-span is reduced to achieve an even easier handling of the Slick.

  • Better stability and upwind ability compared to previous models, the stability as well as the upwind ability are improved.

  • Best of both worlds – intuitive hand positioning and neutral drift plus depower.

  • Due to the intuitive hand positioning, the handling of the wing is super easy. It offers a very neutral drift and plenty of depower.

The Slick is the versatile all-rounder in the range, being the most innovative and most advanced design out there.


 Who is the Slick for.

A wing for riding in all conditions, perfect for freeriding, light wind, waves and freestyle!
The perfect wing !

In lightwind, the stiff profile together with the battens and the draft control rope, make it easy to get going, even in the slightest breeze.
All sizes have incredible low end, especially sizes 6, 6.5 and 7 get you going in the slightest breeze.
The leading edge has been stiffened to create a more rigid framework; this improves the wings jumping abilities, but also offers more control at speed and in powered conditions.

Canopy tension has been increased, and the trailing edge/leech tension has been tuned as well.
These improvements help air flow and reduce drag, giving the wing a better wind range and making it more stable when riding waves.
The new boom utilises an oval grip, making it more comfortable in the hands, hand positioning happens naturally and intuitive, keeping you in control at all time.

The leading edge bladder has been reinforced to make it even more durable.

Finally, there are now ten sizes in the range !
2.5 /3.0/3.5 /4.0/4.5 /5.0/5.5 /6.0/6.5 /7.0


Why have a boom & centre strut?

  • The innovative Mini Boom on center strut design combines the best of both worlds in one wing –

    • infinite hand placement and ease of handling for all types of freeride and freestyle moves.

      • This helps a lot with control and power development.

      • Not having to look for handles, you can focus on your riding.

  • Neutral drift and floating ability of a strut wing for effortless surfing and downwinders.

The Slick combines the positive aspects of strut wings with all the benefits a boom offers. It’s the best of both worlds.
