Armstrong Foils Midlength FG Foilboard 

The new mid-length from Armstrong is, without a doubt, the best and most fun light wind board I've ever used.

I'm riding 865PM Mast, 60 Fuse, HA1080, Speed 180 with 6'1 XPS. Wind around 10 knots with current going the same way as wind 2-3 knots. I'm 86kg 188cm, and I'm riding the 75L 6'1 here. My other wing boards are the 58L FG, 80L FG and 121L 7'7 DW. This new Mid could narrow down my quiver and give me a fantastic light wind board I can still turn, crave and jump.

NOTE: This is not a beginner's board. It's narrow and somewhat tippy, so only buy it if you can stay on foil through turns. Pump the board and wing to get off the water. This board is easy for experienced foilers who can comfortably ride boards under their body weight. I've ridden this a fair bit now. If you want sizing help, comment below.

NOTE: Preorders are Open Now for Late May Delivery. See us at Underground Surf Orewa Beach Auckland, NZ or contact Nick@undergroundsurf.co.nz for more info.

The Armstrong Midlength FG Board Range - Inspired by the soul of surfing

The Midlength is more than a board, it’s an approach.

It’s the unconventional idea that in a world hellbent on giving you so many choices that you can hardly pick what to take out for a session, doing more with less is an inspiring alternative. True to its surf-inspired name, the new Midlength board range truly redefines when and how you can go foiling. It’s the ace up your sleeve, the session saver, hell, it’s a fast-paddling, rippable flight time booster that’s your new superpower. It gives you the freedom to define how you ride. The choice is yours.

Five sizes from 5’1 (45L) to 6’5 (85L).

We hit the sweet spot

A uniquely happy medium.

Slotting in between our Prone, Wing and Downwind boards, the Midlength is a session saver on small or light days with excellent paddle power and an easy release to get you up on foil. That speed and efficiency work equally well to boost your confidence when hunting down bigger surf; the Midlength paddles like a rhino chaser that transforms into your shortboard once in flight. Forget choosing the perfect board, just get on the water and let the board melt away as you take in everything else.

A goldilocks ratio of dimensions and volume makes for optimum glide, stability and manoevrability so you don’t need to be a pro to up your time on foil.

From the shaping bay

Outline: A pointed but not overly sharp nose, gently tapering midsection and pulled in tail make for an efficient glider for prone paddling into either small or large surf. That glide translates remarkably well when winging, too – the Midlength is an amazing light wind machine that rockets off the water with nearly the ease of a Downwind board.
Rocker and rails: Progressive rocker from the nose to the foil tracks keeps things lively in the pocket and makes touchdown recovery easier, and tail kick out the back makes for easy pumping and a clean release on launch. Soft rails up front progress into harder lines out the back for efficient flow and balanced on-water tracking and responsiveness.
Bottom: Pulling from the Downwind boards, a subtle double concave at the nose works its way flat at the foil tracks and finally into the diamond-V tail shape for a quick pop up and maximum un-stickiness when touching down. If a board ever wanted to stay in the air, this would be it.

More grip, more control, more soul

Redefine your footwork.

Like the deck grip on our Wing FG and DW foilboards, the Midlength's deck grip is tailored specifically to provide you with maximum control and comfort to enable your style across different foil sports. In conjunction with the Midlength's flat deck, the grip features raised arch bars above the foil tracks and elevated wedges in the rear of the pad for intuitive and unrestricted foot placement when soul carving across a wave face or getting creative with your foot placement when winging.

Proven construction

Maximum structural rigidity creates a sublime feel underfoot.

The ultra stiff double skin carbon PVC sandwich combined with Armstrong’s reputed i-beam top to bottom dual stringers provides maximum structural rigidity and durability. Proprietary carbon fibre foil tracks are keyed directly into the stringer fibres for a fully integrated construction.

Features

  • Surfboard-Inspired Outline
  • Looking to midlength surfboards for inspiration, the outline balances stability with efficient glide.
  • Downwind-Inspired Bottom Contours
  • Subtle double concave to flat at the foil tracks with a diamond-V tail out the back. Chines run the full length of the board.
  • Split Foredeck
  • The raised central portion of the deck ahead of the pad helps shed water quickly.

  • PVC footstrap inserts for self-tapping screws; optimised for V-strap front footstrap.
  • Vent
  • Allows the board to breathe in a range of temperatures and maintain its structural integrity.
  • Raised Deck Wedges and Arch Bars
  • An intuitive foot placement reference with extra grip for prone waveriding or winging.
