Inspired by the soul of surfing.

The midlength is more than a board, it’s an approach.

It’s the unconventional idea that in a world hellbent on giving you so many choices that you can hardly pick what to take out for a session, doing more with less in an inspiring alternative.

True to it’s surf-inspired name, the new Midlength board range truly redefines when and how you can go foiling. It’s the ace up your sleeve, the session saver, hell, it’s a fast paddling, rippable flight time booster that’s your new superpower. It gives you the freedom to define how you ride. The choice is yours.

Five sizes from 5’1 (45L) to 6’5 (85L).

Armstrong hit the sweet spot: A uniquely happy medium.

Slotting in between their Prone, Wing and Downwind boards, the Midlength is a session saver on small or light days with excellent paddle power and an easy release to get you up on foil. That speed and efficiency work equally well to boost your confidence when hunting down bigger surf; the Midlength paddles like a rhino chaser that transforms into your shortboard once in flight. Forget choosing the perfect board, just get on the water and let the board melt away as you take in everything else.

A goldilocks ratio of dimensions and volume makes for optimum glide, stability and manoevrability so you don’t need to be a pro to up your time on foil.

Outline

A pointed, but not overly sharp nose, gently tapering midsection and pulled in tail make for an efficient glider for prone paddling into either small or large surf. That glide translates remarably well when winging, too – The Midlength is an amazing light wind machine that rockets off the water with nearly the ease of a Downwind board.

Rocker and Rails

Progressive rocker from the nose to the foil tracks keeps things lively in the pocket and makes touchdown recovery easier, and tail kick out the back makes for easy pumping and a clean release on launch. Soft rails up front progress into harder lines out the back for efficient flow and balanced on-water tracking and responsiveness.

Bottom

Pulling from the Downwind boards, a subtle double concave at the nose works it’s way flat at the foil tracks and finally into the diamond-V tail shape for a quick pop up and maximum un-stickiness when touching down. If a board ever wanted to stay in the air, this would be it!

More Grip. More Control. More Soul.

Redefine your footwork.

Like the deck grip on Armstrong’s Wing FG and DW foilboards, the Midlength’s deck grip is tailored specifically to provide you with maximum control and comfort to enable your style across different foil sports. In conjunction with the Midlength’s flat deck, the grip features raised central arch bars above the foil tracks and elevated wedges in the rear of the pad for intuitive and unrestricted foot placement when soul carving across a wave face or getting creative with your foot placement when winging.

 

Forward Geometry

Limitless options to fast track your progression. 

Emphasizing modularity within board design, Armstrong induced a major innovation to wing boards in 2021 with the Forward Geometry concept. Designed to work with any brand of foil, the FG design increases responsiveness by placing the foil more centrally and reducing swing weight in turns. The Wing board range carries on that design legacy with FG foil tracks that are strategically placed well forward for maximum maneuverability and a hyper connected feel on foil, delivering high performance to riders on all board sizes.

Proven Construction

Maximum structural rigidity creates a sublime feel underfoot. 

The ultra stiff double skin carbon PVC sandwich combined with Armstrong’s reputed i-beam top to bottom dual stringers provides maximum structural rigidity and durability. Proprietary carbon fibre foil tracks are keyed directly into the stringer fibres for a fully integrated construction.
