The groundbreaking collaboration between Erik Antonson (the Progression Project) and Unifoil’s designer and inventor of the high aspect wing, Clifford Coetzer is finally here. 

This is no ordinary foil, this wing is the result of uncompromising dedication and attention to detail. Erik, and Unifoil’s years of combined knowledge and experience designing and studying foil sections, profiles, outlines and cambers have gone into the design that we are calling the High Aspect 3.0.

The Progression is set to change the game forever.


  • Forgiving and Intuitive = Easier to Ride

  • Lowered Stall Speed = Longer Glide Time 

  • Agility And Turning = Push it Harder than Ever Before 

  • Reduced Fatigue and Increased Cardio To Distance Ratio = Connect More Waves, Longer Pump and Dw Runs

  • Stability In Turbulence and Breaches = More Control Trust Your Equipment 

  • No Sacrifice In Cruising Speed = Keeps High Top-End

Words from Erik Antonson:  

"I wanted the design to be intuitive and trustworthy, so you can focus on your foil surfing, not trying to manage the foil. I think we have achieved that with this wing. This wing, I can say, excels in every facet of what makes foiling fun. 

"The foil market in general has been equating performance with speed, and been on a quest to ride the smallest, fastest foil. This has pushed the foils out of the working range of most riders and made staying on foil over longer periods much harder. 

"What the Progression foil does in its essence is to redefine performance, not by what is the fastest and most radical foil, but by what foil will let you maximise your performance on the wave, and increase your ride time.

"The Progression foil design objectives were to create the most fun foil experience possible. Flying is fun, and more time flying is more fun. The only limit to time on foil is the rider's cardio level. Glide and efficiency is how you reduce cardio output for longer ride times.  

"However, you don't want to limit your performance on a wave in the quest for glide. For high-performance wave riding, you need to be able to roll the foil easily from side to side, and trust it through turns. 

"Pitchiness is the enemy of trust, so the foil section had to excel in glide, while not getting pitchy through the normal speed range. A more stable foil can be ridden with less tail shim, maximising efficiency."


Before embarking on this journey, Erik made one thing clear, he was not willing to compromise on any part of his wing’s performance. Unifoil agreed and unlocked the budget to prototype each size until they were perfect. 

Pump, glide, turnability, stability, pitch control, big or small conditions - Erik wanted a wing that could do it all, not just do it well, but be best in class, and he wouldn't settle for anything less. 

“What makes this range unique, is instead of just scaling up and down the size range, each size has been designed and prototyped from the ground up, until the desired feel was achieved for the size of wing.” Erik Antonson

What we have managed to achieve with this wing is the trademark Unifoil smooth buttery feeling, mixed with the glide and pump-ability of a super-efficient high-aspect wing, without sacrificing any turnability.

Predictable in turbulence and wing tip breaching, but without sacrificing any speed. This wing is a true unicorn. 

The Progression feels like a true high-performance surf wing when riding in the wave pocket, but has such easy pump and glide that it allows the rider to pump back out easily after a long ride, and do it again, multiple times over. 

In fact, the glide and low end is so groundbreaking, it allows the rider more rest time between pumps, which means reduced burnout and improved cardio to distance ratio.

Not to mention, this wing catches any tiny ripple or bump of swell on offer.

Riders' feedback from pro to amateur is they are getting their longest rides ever on this wing. 

This wing is a game-changer for all disciplines of foiling.

  • Prone

    Rip the wave to pieces, then pump back out and do it again without burning out. 

  • Tow

    Super tight arcs in the pocket and catch any swell from miles out. 

  • Wingers

    Longer glide time allows for easier turning for gybes before stalling the wing. 

  • Downwind

    Reduced fatigue and the ability for this wing to ride the smallest bump of swell means longer DW runs, and allows for advanced riders, to drop down to smaller foils and still be able to get on foil easily but go faster and turn on the chops harder.
