THE FUTURE OF OLYMPIC WINDSURFING

THE FUTURE OF OLYMPIC WINDSURFING

iQFOiL EQUIPMENT

PATHWAY TO iQFOiL

The streamlined pathway from Junior to Youth and Olympic Gold

Changing age groups normally means changing all your equipment. We propose the iQFOiL Junior class where transitioning to iQFOiL Youth class would require only the front wing of the foil and the rig to change for a larger size. Core elements like the board and foil components remain the same.

 

ACADEMY

Clinics and demo events are being organised in conjunction with the official iQFOiL championships as well as special dedicated events. Senior/Youth/Junior sailors and coaches can take part, demo the equipment and learn the basics of foiling.

 

STORY

The iQFOiL brings Olympic windsurfing to new
heights with the incredible technological
advancements of foiling.

HOW ACCURATE IS MY iQFOiL EQUIPMENT?

The beauty of racing with One Design equipment is that the best sailor wins. We as the producers of the new Olympic equipment feel the necessity to honour that concept as much as we can.

We know how much effort, hours of training and resources go into campaigning for an Olympic medal, so we must provide the most accurate/fair gear we can. Let the best sailor win!

TRAVEL

Travelling with windsurfing gear these days is challenging but the complete iQFOiL set can be split into two 23kgs bags, complying with mosts of International Airlines baggage allowances.

iQFOiL news June 2020 – First ever iQFOiL Europeans and clinics confirmed

Switzerland will host the first-ever iQFOiL European Championships from the 21-26 of August.

Silvaplana is one of the best locations in the world to go foiling. Being located in central Europe, it will make it possible for most of the sailors to come by car and avoid taking expensive flights.

The event will be part of the prestigious Engadinwind by Dakine ’20 which include several foiling events such as our inauguration Invitational Regatta (15th-16th August) with worldwide stars over the first weekend in St. Moritz and as well our first stop of the Junior/Youth/Coach clinic and race tour (27th -30th August) where we will have over 45 sets of junior/youth gear available for the last weekend.

ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES ASSOCIATED
WITH THE iQFOiL PROGRAM

Each board is made 100x Climate net positive through the Mangroves planted in Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park. Our own Starboard Plastic Offset Program picks up 1.4 kg of ocean plastic per board sold. Strict environmental event guidelines and support will sit alongside World Sailing’s sustainability program.
