Message Benoit Miquel July 6, 2015
For those who know me, this is the "Seagull".
And yes, I started to foil: but eh quiet because it is not obvious !!
Then it is 4 times that I wrinkled foil, and I had the occassion to test it 3 models:
- ALPINE FOIL Access 5.0 (alu)
- KETOS by Orana
3 of these tests, I spring with a huge banana with the ALPINE FOIL Access 5.0.
Model with aluminum mast and fuselage.
I am at my 4th session of foil, but phew thing what I could do with alpine.
Super stable and rigid: the blow when you take a lot of speed, the foil remains super super stable compared to others.
Adaptable light wind wing or wing more efficient.
In short, easy glide, great instinctive, like a little toy for beginners like me or others that send fadas serious (dedicated to Hugo and Romain !!!).
What else to say on this foil ... oh yes the board. Pfff ... AT TOP, not big, not too small, the straps made in alpine 'were great !! I enjoyed the config 2 straps to the front and then the back foot V strapless !!
Anyway, I'm not a crack but there's not surfing, I gets off this my session with ACCESS 5.0 made by Damien Chaboud !!
I think (and even that's for sure), I'll take one!
Because I already know the team well ALPINEFOIL and they were great to me (counseling, testing etc.). Then, have a great foil perfo 'but equally accessible and finally downright moin expensive than full carbon (€ 1000 moin, what we done for € 1095) !!
Cheers everyone and soon on (above) the water!
Jm33 message of July 13, 2015
"I had the chance to try it last Sunday foil, after trying the Manta few weeks ago, the AlpineFoil gave me much more good feelings that the Manta.
Already in terms of robustness, junction mat / fuselage is much more rigid, no game like the Manta, fixings wing and stab with the same feeling ... The whole is still very heavy, taking to wear dt even to maneuver in the water, but the water start sent the clear impression is that of having always been able to find out the foil so the stability is HUGE! (that said I liked the Manta side stability).
He does not move and it has all the appearance including downwind, no breakdown detected during the test. Dt suitable speed softness in pides although I felt the inertia of the board.
A perfect foil for learning or for freeride, I think we must quickly master the "airjibe" and so transfers the foil is easy! To be confirmed by another test longer ... "

Testing the Access 5.0 yesterday with the wing freeride, I had already tried with the wing sports during the friendly.
Heavy to go to the water, then it is forgotten. Sensation stability at all speeds, easier curve with the sport. Max very easy to reach (well mine because I think we can go faster). Immediate feeling of gliding.
Clearly a very good freeride foil with perfs at least as much carbon foil.

I've been riding my Alpinefoil hydrofoil for more than a year now and recently I had the privilege of visiting the founder, Damien Chaboud at Alpinefoil HQ in Le Touvet, France. I've been an admirer since I first rode the Alpinefoil and it was incredible to see his operation first-hand, and to ride with the Alpinefoil crew there at their spot, Lac de Monteynard-Avignonet.
Damien also gave me the full rundown on his latest additions to the Alpinefoil product line: the Sport wing and the Access 5.0 aluminum / carbon foil. He sent a Sport wing home with me to San Francisco and so in this post I’ll focus on the Sport wing, with another to follow about the Access 5.0 setup.
The standard Alpinefoil wing is known as the XLP, for “eXtra Large Program”, a French-English acronym that speaks to the large surface area and easy handling of this wing. The XLP is a perfect wing for getting started with foiling and progressing to the high-intermediate level. The Sport wing is designed for those who are ready to go even faster, whether for free riding or racing.
The Sport wing has a smaller surface area, shorter chord length, and upswept 'shark fin' winglets – let's call them sharklets – at the wingtips. Overall, the design goal is lower drag, faster top speed, and greater maneuverability, while retaining the stability and low-speed performance of the XLP. Normal maximum speeds for most riders on the XLP are in the range of 22-25 knots, whereas Damien has already been clocked at nearly 33 knots on the Sport wing, and most riders should be able to readily achieve 30 knots.
I’ve been riding the Sport wing over the past week or so, and it seems to me that Damien has achieved all of these goals and more. First of all, the Sport wing is incredibly easy to ride. Just power up, pop out and you’re flying. The Sport wing does require perhaps two more knots of board speed to get flying, but it still has the same ease of use and stability of the Alpinefoil design in general. I was able to fly the Sport wing back to back with the XLP in very light wind, and it's clear that the Sport wing has incredible low end for such a fast wing. I was up and riding on the Sport wing immediately, just faster and even smoother. Pitch stability is unchanged, and while the Sport wing is still very stable on the roll axis, it rolls and turns more quickly once you initiate a movement, resulting in a livelier, more dynamic ride.
Some of you may be wondering if the Sport wing is the “Race” wing. Damien has produced a few one-off “HELD” wings for racing, but there is no production full-race wing yet. The Sport wing is in production and our team riders are racing and winning on the Sport wing. I can imagine that there is still room for a full-on race-only wing at some point, but for most riders the Sport wing will suit be more than enough for high-speed free riding as well as racing.
I’ve been super stoked on the Alpinefoil program from the start, and now even more so after meeting Damien in person and riding the new Sport wing. I also got a preview of what’s coming later this year and in 2016 – and believe me, it’s going to blow your mind!

The practice of kitefoil is constantly evolving to the rider Hugo CHABOUD image and deserves the top of these 16 who happens to spend just bluffing tricks.
Fanatic freestyle hugo found the same feeling but with more height and ease its hydrofoil Alpinefoil the foilstyle for him is evident in the practice of kitefoil.
A new modern area in the world of kitesurfing was born and we are proud to present you hugo in these works, here in rodeo 360
