Our new PCX board is a Prone Foil Surfboard. The PCX is also a true crossover, with foil mount tracks as well as a full Quad-fin setup so you can surf it foiled or unfoiled. FYI, This board can be Prone-foil-surfed, Surfed, Kitefoiled, or Kitesurfed.
The Hull design features a compact yet high volume board, to make wave catching a breeze. The hull shape features our tried and true “Tri-plane” shape for superior tracking and speed, while allowing spirited turniness when hard over on the rails. The board’s rocker line features a generous amount of nose-scoop to handle rough water, and the inevitable touch-downs. It also comes in handy when making those late take-offs and dropping down the steepest wave faces.
The deck features our favorite concave shape, to help lower your CG, while locking your feet in for strapless riding. The deck is covered with a full-length EVA deckpad. And comes with the right number of footstrap inserts. You can ride this board Strapless, 1-strap, 2-straps, or with a 3-strap setup.
Construction: This board is built out of our best materials, including our Hardcore HDEPS/PVC Composite foam plugs, and the shell is constructed using a full carbon-fiber-hdfoam sandwich for maximum stiffness and strength. Carbon and bamboo stringers support the board’s hi-tech exo-skeleton. Please note that all our boards are precision-built and hand-crafted to precise specifications. No mass-produced boards here. Every Flyfoil board is an unique creation engineered to provide maximum enjoyment and reliable service.
Board Specs: This board measures in at a compact 5’0″, and packs in an impressive 54 liters of volume. The track mount is a full 10.5 inch track for tuning and trimming.
The decision to ride strapless or strapped is more than a style choice. There are functional issues to consider and also risk factors too. Beginners should familiarize themselves with these issues before deciding one way or another.

We have just opened a new Flyfoil Kite demo center in Vietnam. Located on the world class Mui Ne Kite Beach. We are in partnership with our friends at the newly created Session Sports Kite School. This center is the exclusive ocean sports center located at the Saigon Mui Ne resort. With one of the longest beach frontages in Mui Ne. Talk to any of their instructors about Flyfoil Gear. They ride them and use them in their school. These guys are hard-core freestylers as well as avid foilers too. Test rides on the New Gear is available by appointment. Test Rides (without a rental or lesson) are usually limited to 30 minute rides, and please take care and ride responsibly, because “if you bust it you buy it”.
Wind conditions in Mui Ne are super consistent during the peak winter season, December to March and get somewhat lighter in the shoulder seasons. Lightwind kiters and foilers have a much longer season. Summer season has a reversal of wind direction. Water here is warm, no wetsuit is required, although wearing some sun protection while kiting is always a good idea.
