Message Benoit Miquel July 6, 2015

Hi everybody.
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!

The Seagull

"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.
