RRD H-Flight Hydrofoil + Squid board
Introducing the RRD H-Flight freeride hydrofoil with 80cm mast and Aluminium fuselage
After more testing, research, and feedback from our global team riders, we have decided to incorporate our hybrid foil with a shorter 80cm aluminium mast (instead of 90cm) paired with an Aluminium fuselage (instead of a Carbon one). The changeable Carbon rear and front wings are unchanged.
We decided to use an 80cm ‘Full Flight’ mast to cater for those riders that are afraid to hit sandbanks and/or coral reefs at low tide and also for the simple reason that 80cm is long enough for free riding purposes. We decided to go for an Aluminum fuselage because it proved to be stronger, lighter, and is more cost effective.
To reduce the learning curve and to make Kitefoiling more accessible to everyone, we will still offer the two different additional mast lengths. These two optional masts, the 40cm “Take Off” and the 65cm “Touch & Go” together with the standard 80cm mast, make up the “RRD Aviation Academy Package” and are ideal for schools and/or beginners. These two short, optional masts, are available as spare parts and can be sold separately. The Behavior of our Foil set-up is very, stable, predictable, and reliable, which is why it has gained worldwide recognition and such great test results from the magazines.

We developed each foil component on the basis of the technology integration between Aluminium design and pre-preg Carbon. So, we wanted to have a combination of these composite materials to create a very reliable, lightweight, but still strong and affordable foil system.
We have decided to go for a 4 hold plate on the mast, because it is the safest system. With 4 solid screws you can also move the foil back and forth, depending on your skills and level.
An Aluminum mast is a monetary and lightweight solution that gave us the possibility to develop a very thin profile mast, that is heavily reinforced inside and has a structural 3 stringers profile.
PROGRAM: HYDROFOIL / DIRECTIONAL / SKIMBOARD
Propel through the water with this new multifunctional directional kiteboarding hydrofoil / skim board. The RRD Squid was designed with freeriding in mind. It is extremely maneuverable and provides the rider with constant feedback and control due to the light and stiff construction. The quad concave not only gives the board grip as a skim board, but it also provides more rigidity, thus improving the overall stiffness. These four channels, coupled with a moderate nose rocker, allow the board to drive forward and upward on touchdowns with the foil.
The Squid’s deck is covered with full ‘EVA brushed top striped groove’ and can be used in the foil configuration, with foot straps, or as a strapless board.
Four channel box inserts on the bottom of the board allow multiple positions of the foil plate to achieve a perfect micrometric trim for your sessions. The foil base plate is reinforced with an unidirectional carbon stringer that runs from tip to tail, adding to the boards stiffness and quality construction while the small tail fins with moderate tail kick allow the Squid to cruise effortlessly through the waves.
Take foiling to the next level, travel with ease, and be prepared because light wind will be no concern with the new RRD Squid multi-purpose hydrofoil skimboard.
