With the Boostial 2022 we wanted to create an inflatable Wing Foil board that was able to compete with the most performing and radical rigid boards on the market today, while maintaining a generous volume, which in the water is synonymous of ease and comfort. The Boostials are extremely compact boards that harmoniously combine a narrow and streamlined profile, state of the art of the best radical boards on the market today, with a generous volume typical of the most comfortable boards.
The narrow profile combined with the generous volume together with some unique features allow the boards to have extremely low friction in the water, which results in a higher cruising speed and greater ease and speed of take-off. It will seem incredible to you how easily and lightly the board will rise from the water, without you having to exhaust yourself by pumping. The generous volume, as well as facilitating every maneuver when the board is not yet in flight, will allow you to comfortably return to shore, even if the wind suddenly drops.
Once in flight, the extreme compactness and narrow profile of the Boostial translates into "0 inertia". The board is extremely reactive, like the most radical rigid Wing Foil boards on the market today. Its narrow profile is appreciated by experienced riders because it allows you to tilt the board aggressively and reach extreme angles when cornering, without the risk of the edge touching the water. The compactness and narrow profile of the Boostial will allow you to carve aggressively and with maximum reactivity and lightness. The generous volume peculiarity of the Boostials has been so cleverly distributed and "hidden" that in flight the reactivity and lightness of our product will seem incredible to you; but after a fall, when you are engaged in a restart to stand up on the board or when you are floating because there is no wind, you will appreciate that the volume has only been "hidden", but it is there and is well distributed ;-)).
However ... the peculiarities of the Boostials do not end there ... The curvature of the rocker of the board has been designed both to make the “touchdowns” harmless and to work better in the waves. Our wing foil boards feature a rocker curve that has been designed and calibrated to eliminate the braking effect of touchdowns and to minimize the friction between the waves in the floating and take-off phases. This means that in touchdowns the Boostials are not braked but tend to bounce off the water and fly back immediately.
The boards are made with double-layer welded "Woven Dropstitch" technology: today the state of the art to give strength, sturdiness and lightness to the inflatable wing-foil boards. We have also specially designed and built a very sturdy carbon fiber plate with generous dimensions and a thickness of 16mm, which is solidly glued to the board in the area below the wingsurfer.
The result of combining these two technologies in our Boostials is to allow it to achieve a rigidity comparable to that of the best rigid boards. A result that cannot be achieved only with “wowen dropstitch” technology. The plate, a real technological jewel among carbon fiber products, is made using a vacuum molding process, now a state of the art for this type of product. In the plate, a comfortable handle is obtained to facilitate the transport of the table itself, and a double box type "US-rail" 100% compatible with the assembly of foils with standard "US-plate" fixing plate.
The carbon plate in addition to conferring the proverbial stiffness, reactivity and strength to the Boostials serves as a base for attachment and distribution of the forces of the foil.
The stern of the board is a classic soft "diamond-tail", which gives stability to the board when in the water, but allows a clear detachment of the water flow without the formation of vortices. To improve acceleration and facilitate the start of glide, we mounted a "half-silicon-ridge" on the boostials, that is a mini aileron only where it is needed to facilitate glide and the detachment of the laminar flow.
Even the deck was not a compromise choice: made with 3D geometry, 5mm thick and chosen with a density and surface finish such as to ensure excellent grip and maximum comfort to prolong your pleasure during long sessions in the water.
Another peculiarity of our boards is the ability to mount 3 very comfortable and sturdy straps, 2 of which are V-shaped at the front and one at the rear. Unlike some of our more famous competitors who use single screw anchors even on rigid boards, we have preferred to privilege strength also for what concerns the safety of anchoring the straps to the boards.
Fastening takes place with separate anchoring inserts for each strap. Each insert foresees to mount 2 screws in parallel, so that each strap is anchored to the table by means of 4 distinct screws, a solution that differs diametrically from that of our competitors, but which we believe gives greater longevity and strength to our product.
On the Boostials there are two sturdy stainless steel anchor rings, one at the back for fixing the leash-line, the other at the front for all the times you want to tie up and leave the board safe in the water, perhaps during a break in your wing-surf session.
Comparing the wing foil with all the aquatic disciplines in which as enthusiasts we have tried our hands over many years of playful activity in the water and comparing ourselves with a large audience of wing-foilers we have come to the conclusion that it is a sport in which progress is very rapid above all at the beginning. On average we found that 6-10 sessions in the water are enough for one person to learn to fly with wingfoil boards and pass from the beginner to the "advanced shy" stage. From then on, the speed of progress depends, as in all sports, on the difficulty of the maneuvers faced.
It is also easy to realize what are the main advantages of inflatable boards, compared to rigid boards: greater comfort, greater ease of transport, great impact strength, ease of small maintenance/repairs, not to mention safety aspects: falling heavily on and/or accidentally hitting a rigid board with a part of your body is much more dangerous and traumatic than hitting an inflatable board.
We have also repeatedly found in recent years that the market offer of inflatable wing-foil boards, although relatively well covers the needs of a beginner through a large offer of wide, long and stable boards, mostly advertised as "versatile. ", as they are suitable to be used not only for the practice of wing-foil, but also in the practice of foil-surf or foil-sup or as "easy" because of very abundant dimensions, it does not at all cover the offer for wingsurfers with levels from advanced to expert.
In fact, every new raider looking for an inflatable wing-foil board on the market today will find himself confronted with an offer that he will appreciate only at the beginning of his new adventure. After relatively few sessions, as soon as he has reached the level of progress, the dimensions and inertia of the boards offered will make him want to switch to a more compact, more reactive-aggressive board and one that allows him to progress in increasingly radical maneuvers, while not leaving it to give up the comfort and safety of an adequate volume.
It is on these premises that the philosophy of the Boostial is based.
We wanted to create a line of wing-foil boards in the state of the art, with the highest quality materials that are safe, easy - even if not very easy for a beginner -, reactive and highly performing. That it is expressly made to be used and brutalized in the most radical maneuvers of this new sport. A product designed and optimized EXCLUSIVELY for the practice of wing-foil and in particular to thrill experienced wingsurfers from shy advanced to super expert. A product that combines the advantages of inflatable boards with those of rigid boards designed for all raiders who have learned to fly after a dozen or so sorties in the water and who would now like a board that can also accompany them as experts in all progress and more radical maneuvers in the coming years.
