Welcome to UNI-Foil Hydrofoils (est 2015)
We are based in South Africa , Jeffreys bay in the Eastern cape.
All foils are measured on the front bottom wing area which is in square inches.
The 100 which is specifically for kite foiling, this is a free-ride foil for more advanced riders
The 120 foil is a great beginner kite foil or tow in foil for bigger surf or for more advanced riders.
The 175 which is a great all round foil which works well as a kite foil for surf, a prone foil or as a SUP foil for lighter riders
The 185 surf is a foil specifically for the waves ( although there is no reason it cant be used for kiting) This foil is designed to link waves and is very easy to turn
The 200 surf is the 185’s bigger brother which has the same features, but is just for bigger riders
210 Race foil is specifically designed for down wind racing for riders around 80-100 kgs
The kitefoil can be viewed in 3d in Autocads Fusion 360 browser
The Uni Foil is made from Toray 800 fibers.
Various techniques from Foam crush , Resin infusion and Bladder inflation are used to make the parts
The fuselage is unique in its design avoiding the typical half and half moulding process which creates a seam that is a weak point found on many other hydrofoils
The Uni-Foil uses layers of carbon which are wrapped around a carbon core like a swiss roll eliminating the typical left and right halves that are joined
The inserts are all of Stainless Steel
The KF box mast comes in two sizes 650mm and 930mm.
The flat plate mast is available in 650mm and 750mm. (mounting holes are 165mmx90mm)
A flat plate adapter is available for the KF box mast, this adds 50mm to the length of the mast (mounting holes are 165mmx90mm)
All masts are from from full carbon fiber construction, they will not bend or corrode like aluminum versions
The rear wings function is to provide stability to the hydrofoil. Depending on what wing is chosen affects the feel of the foil.
Three options are available , the rudder wing , the down curved wing , or the flat race
The rudder wing stabilizer (320mm wide x 70mm chord) provides a more rail like locked in feel as it has more yaw direction stability whereas the down curved stabilizer (360mmx70mm) has a looser feel but aids the ability to pump. The flat wing is for ultimate low end drag
