  • Raid WinFoil Toulon - La Rade - St Mandrier

    Congratulations to Gautier Guichard for his participation in the raid Windfoil Toulon-La rade - St Mandrier to îles des deux frères- Cap de Carquieranne
    A new great performance in Windfoil and especially a lot of fun for Gautier who has traveled 70 km in 20nds last weekend on the event organized by the French Windfoil Association.
    Gautier, rider AlpineFoil, was equipped for this occasion with Windfloil Alu A1 mounted with the ULW 1200 and the new Board 2020 AWF3 215 x 78 128 liters. Gautier obviously took a lot of fun with this combo which was perfectly adapted for this raid and which confirms the possibilities offered by the ULW 1200 at the same time in low range, upwind, navigation in the strong winds, control and speed of displacement high.

    Thank you Gautier for your return in pictures and especially CONGRATULATIONS  to you.

  • Customer reviews kitefoil Alpinefoil Rave - VR6 2020

    The little shot of Peps at AlpineFoil this week ... We do not regret having cracked.

    We wanted to share with you the return of a customer following the purchase of his AlpineFoil Rave.
    It is this type of return that makes you want to continue to develop products and to believe in our Made in France production. The goal for us is to satisfy our customers more and more about the quality and especially the pleasure of skiing.
    Our explanations and the attention we strive at best to bring to each customer, to advise him on the best adapted product is really the philosophy and the little more that we try to bring.

    Patrice thank you for this good boost for the team who wishes you a good progress with your new toy.

    «Patrice The 04/11/2019
    After my first foil a lot of hesitation before moving to a new product
    Call to ALPINEFOIL conseil by Damien CHABOUD directly
    Decide to go there on the occasion of a trip to see the products in the showroom (I needed to see the products)
    Welcome by Damien CHABOUD directly and true debacle on the products Alpinefoil ... but I would not have had, I cracked: Purchase a rave associated with the board VR6 2020 (yes, I broke my piggy bank and it is true that I hesitated between the access carbon and VR5)
    Well I must say that I was good wall and the finish is top with a bonus visit of the factory
    Back in the Atlantic Loire with the combo and test in complicated conditions on the first two outputs, a lot of waves and current, disappointment .... Call to Alpinefoil for adjustments and advice. Damien even confirms the placement of the straps and calles and even propose settings if I want to find the same behavior as my old foil but remains on these initial advice and settings, and he was right
    New test last week and it's gone live. impressive, all the advice proved to be accurate. Now it's up to me to progress because far from the capabilities of the machine in any case see the photo no equivalent in terms of finish and evolution (it's just a killer to watch) to follow but super happy from my investment I look forward to trying it now in very light conditions to see how far we can go with it. To be continued...

  • Result from the test of a sacrificial anode during one season

    A few months ago, we introduced the revolutionary SACS system to the Hydrofoil Community. This sacrificial anode has been tested during all this season long in seawater and works perfectly! 

    Thanks to this great result, we are now sure that this system must absolutely equip the whole range of kitefoils and windfoils. AlpineFoil is the only hydrofoil maker able to provide a sacrificial anode that increases drastically the durability of foils and guarantees the ultimate performances for years. Our goal is to provide the best product to our customer and that's why we innovate continuously.

    For this reason, AlpineFoil is proud to equip all the new kitefoils and windfoils 2019 with the sacrificial anode. These foils are already available on the web store or in our partners' stores.
    Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
