Downwind / Lightwind 7’6″

Downwind / Lightwind 7’6″

The Stealth DW / LW is arguably the next level of Downwind SUP/ Light Wind Foil board.
Appropriately named after its sleek shape that was inspired by the pioneer of Downwind board design Dave Kalama. We owe a great amount of gratitude to Dave for discovering and inspiring riders on the journey of Downwind/lightwind foiling.

Overview
CEO & shaper Steve Legge created the 7’6” x 19.25” @ 102L for lighter riders with his team and a Hydrodynamics engineer. The Stealth shape features a longer & narrower outline that has a shallow spoon hull for stability with an ideal amount of rocker up front. This hull shape transitions to a flat bottom from the mid point of the board to the tail creating substantial glide and quick acceleration. The Stealth series has an innovative volume distribution and softened rail design so you don’t hook up or get stuck when trying to get up on foil. The rails firm up through to the tail so the water can flush out the back for increased acceleration and speed.
Key note : ( the tail never meets at a sharp point so the water doesn’t cross over and create downward suction or impede forward momentum with unwanted turbulence.)
The 7’ 6” Stinger Stealth Board has proven its design with an incredibly easy lift off in downwind waves, flat water or light wind wing foiling

Construction
All of the Stealth Series boards are built with “Vacuum Bag Construction” making boards that are lighter, more durable, and consistent. As a result, you get more acceleration speed , glide, and riding performance. The vacuum construction also ensures the Stealth will have a superior longevity over the test of time.

Performance
Test riders that weigh up to 165lbs, when using the 7’6” Stealth they’re finding that their paddle speed is greatly improved because of the narrow outline and unique shaping. While quite narrow, the Stealth still has great stability on the water. This stability helps increase the paddle stroke cadence allowing you get up on foil earlier and easier.
The test team have been finding they are able to use a smaller front foil when paddling up, or wing foiling. The result is faster riding speeds and more fun in the right conditions.
Wing Foiler’s are finding they are able to get up to take off speed way faster, so you are on foil much earlier than conventional board designs. The longer board length releases sooner or with less speed, so light wind conditions are achievable where they were not in the past. Riding in 6 to 8 knots is now achievable with a larger sized wind wing like the new Stinger 6.1m!

Our Company
Stinger Stealth Series boards are designed and built in Whistler BC, Canada. We are very proud to be the able to offer the lightest and strongest quality boards to Foilers in Canada and to our neighbours south of us along with the state of Hawaii.
