2023 Armstrong – WKT109 | Foil Board Review
In this review we have the Armstrong WKT109 foil board. On this particular setup we have the Performance 795 mast with the MA1225 front wing and the 205 Surf rear wing. This foil board is designed for intermediate to advanced riders who are looking for excellent maneuverability and control on the water.
One of the standout features of the Armstrong WKT109 foil board is its construction. Made from high-quality carbon fiber, the board feels incredibly light yet sturdy. This not only enhances the overall performance but also makes transportation and carrying the board a breeze. The craftsmanship is top-notch, with smooth edges and a beautiful finish that adds to its visual appeal.
In terms of performance, the Armstrong WKT109 foil board delivers exceptional results. The board has a unique concave shape on the deck, which provides excellent stability and control, even at high speeds. I found that it allowed for effortless gliding through the water and smooth transitions during turns. The board’s wide tail design also helps with maintaining balance and offers increased lift, making it easier to stay in waves and ride for longer distances.
Another aspect that stood out to me was the board’s ability to absorb chop and vibrations. The carbon construction, coupled with a slight flex in the deck, provides a smooth and comfortable ride, even in rougher waters. This feature greatly reduces the strain on the rider and allows for longer sessions without fatigue.
Overall, we have been extremely pleased with the Armstrong WKT109 foil board. Its high-quality construction, exceptional performance, and versatility make it a great choice for riders looking to take their foiling to the next level. Whether you are carving waves or cruising across flat water, this board offers an unmatched experience. We highly recommend the Armstrong WKT109 foil board to any avid foiler looking for a top-of-the-line product.
