Renowned designer Laurent Borgna, known for his biomimetic whale-inspired foil, joined AFS in 2023 to craft foils for wave riding. Chipri Courde, a celebrated surfer from Tahiti famous for his foil sessions, also joined. Their collaboration with AFS resulted in the SILK, a foil designed for balance, maneuverability, and control. The SILK excels in glide and power, accommodating various riding styles.
AFS SILK offers a superb wave riding experience, with fluid transitions between turns and stability in turbulent waters thanks to foil tubercles and winglets. Tailored stabilizers ensure pitch stability, maneuverability, and high-speed control for each SILK foil size.
SILK boasts a monobloc structure for rigidity, UHM carbon construction for durability, and a specialized UHM mast for ideal glide and maneuverability. Its super rigid mast-to-fuselage connection ensures smooth hydrodynamics and minimal drag.
Foil and Co, through its brand AFS, pioneers carbon foil production in France.
Sustainability and innovation drive the company, which is also the parent of AHD Windsurfing, Sealion Concept, and AFS SUP, expanding its watersports offerings.
