Function :

A Board, Multi-Use, for Foil performance in Kite & in the Surf.

Introduction :

The creation of the Foil is the perfect Tool to discover an entire new way of approaching each discipline that you all already might be practicing. The New Catch 3CS have been developed, in parallel, with our Allvator Foils so they may be used  both in Kite and in Surf by simply making adjustments with the Foil and Foot Strap placements on the Board and with the foil wing and mast length configurations.

The variety of 5 different Boards, form 3’6 to 5’10 will cover the needs for users of all sizes and needs, from the true beginner to the expert, and with the possibility to switch from sport to sport in a matter of minutes all while keeping performance at the top of the list. Traveling becomes lighter, less expensive, and will open up new horizons in each sport for those who may be practicing only one or the other, it is all made possible now with the New 3CS Catch!!!

In KiteFoil Configuration it's a powerful and compact shape.  At the same time lengthy at the tips and very short, this outline ’squared’ has a lot of lift for its size. At the same time it offers an incredible sensation of lightness and liberty. For this who like the ‘No-Nose’ approach, this baby is talking to you!!

A Board relatively thick through the center for early planing and houses some volume. But also don’t forget the rails that are ultra thin to make those touchdowns painless. You can cut through the chop with no fear of loosing speed. It’s genius.

It’s a 100% Freeride Board that is totally accesible, very much alive and playful. But don’t forget that once mounted with a Foil that these characteristics allow undoubtable speeds ;)!

The extensive adjustments possible for Footstrap positioning on the Board and for the Foil on the Us Box rails will allow those who are beginning progressive experience, first by starting further in the front with the idea of calming down the Board behavior then by moving these point closer together (Foiler stance, & Foil thrust center) in order to arrive at the perfect balance of flight and perform once the correct skill level is attained.

Large Diamond tail and nose for buoyancy in light wind and before taking flight. Prominant V along the bottom notably under the nose for a supple touch in the water and for avoiding forward falling crashes. The rails are thin and soft in order to diminish braking when touching down unexpectedly and a large central plateau the full length of bottom to maintain the glide at low speeds. The board is ultra clean despite overflowing with insane technology.

It's a board that planes early and offers endurance on a turbulant sea. She's the ideal, lightweight, motor for linking turns and pulling killer tricks!.

Mounted in SurfFoil the reduced dimensions of the 3CS Catch will astound you (discounted straps, recoiled Foil towards the back of the Box). The generous volume and flattened out Hull towards the back end will generate all the speed needed for fast paddling. At the take-off, the lifted nose avoids pearling and its width helps positioning and gives stability at the most crucial/technical phase of wave entry. The finesse of the rails allows you to grab it effortlessly and control it and get it right into position.

In Flight the Shape, as un-cumbersome as it can get, is super reactive and alive. The positioning on the Board and the balance when in stance become natural quickly. The inertia at the tips, almost non existent, and the reduced length permit intensive and efficient pumping.

Turns are linked easily, it is easy to gain speed and be ahead of the unfurling wave giving you the space to work your maneuvers in total freedom with your movements. The reduced volume of the rails allow for some impressive angles without ever touching the water giving you the possibility for radical tricks!!!

how to choose the right size :

The 5 Board Range revolves around the 5’3, which is the in between point for the other sizes. The 3’6 and 4’6 will be destined for Foilers with a higher level and performance demand, where the skill level allows them to forego the comfort of the larger models so they can aim for higher performance in Kite as well as when Surfing.  The 5’7 and 5’10 will be exceptionally easy for light wind Kite Foiling, and will allow for an apprenticeship and progression that is beyond easy in SurfFoil because of the generous volume. The 5’3 offers comfort & performance within both disciplines to riders that are real go getters.

 

Shape :

  • Rocker : Flat through the back half for easy take-off in KiteFoil and for fast paddling in SurfFoil, then a kicked up nose to reduce hard touchdowns when Kiting, but also avoids pearling a take-off in SurfFoil.

  • Rails : Very thin with the least volume possible due to the chined/angled hull : Chined hull that prevents harsh touchdowns when KiteFoiling and insures hard angles and a better hand hold when SurfFoiling, which gives you more control of the Board on take-offs.

  • Volume : Quite generous, notably not he larger models which make them even more accessible.

  • Outline : Hard to make it more compact ;-); the lines of the nose have been reworked to make them more harmonious.

  • Tail : Large Diamond Tail for immédiate planing and for control in the chop without losing speed on touchdowns.

  • Nose : Diamond Nose with a V, highly marked, on the bottom which facilitates the management of touchdowns in the chop, even when you’re heavily angled.

  • Deck : Flat.

  • Bottom : multi-chined hull
