Swift // DW our performance down wind board

Move your foiling to the next level
on a Swift // NG wingboard...


Board shown NG 90L with custom SurfDek and split grey/white colour

The SWIFT // NG is our performance wingboard board for experienced riders looking to progress. It is available in 6 standard sizes which can be customised to suit you.

Light weight and strong

Our carbon Innegra / epoxy construction is bullet proof but remains light weight. This provides the best combination between performance and durability.

Evolving shape

While sticking with the key features which identify the NG we are constantly developing the design making incremental improvements to stay ahead of the curve.

Quick release design

The NG is designed to get up and go. Easy to pump and quick to break from the water to give you the best ride.

The details

SWIFT // DW is built to order in 6 proven sizes.

Unlike the mass-producers, we cut each board individually and will customise details and dimensions to suit you.

Built with full carbon epoxy constrution

The SWIFT // DW is built with a premium twill weave carbon cloth and epoxy resin as standard. We use a vacuum construction to increase the fiber density within the matrix. This creates a laminate with a better strength to weight ratio.

DW 90L in Blue / white split colour

Finished in a super hard polished epoxy in blue / white.

Unlike the big brands, we do not use fillers and paint which can easily chip and scratch. We pigment the epoxy with your chosen colour and finish with a clear epoxy gloss coat. This creates the most durable finish possible.

or customise with your own colour scheme

Choose from a range of single, dual colour and fully custom multi colour styles.

With a choice of epoxy pigments and styles we will make your board unique

Fitted with16" Chinook Tracks as standard

Whatever your riding style or foil selection, 16” tracks gives more than enough adjustability to position your mast exactly where it suits you.  With our internal board structure, we have created one of the strongest foil boxes on the market. This provides you, the rider, with that ultra rigid and connected feel.

Tech details

All our boards are built using an epoxy vacuum construction. Epoxies have superior strength compared to cheaper alternative polyester resins so it was an easy decision for us to make. 

Vacuum bagging boards during lamination applies an even pressure over the surface which allows us to achieve a greater fibre density within the resin matrix, resulting in a stronger, lighter board.

Our prone boards are laminated with 100% carbon fibre.

Carbon fibre has an excellent strength to weight ratio having a low density, high tensile strength and a high Young’s Modulus (stiffness). With prone boards being so thin the stiffness must be provided by the laminate and so 100% carbon construction is necessary to create a strong and rigid yet lightweight board.   

We pigment the epoxy during construction rather than painting our boards.  Unlike others, you can clearly see we are not using paint to cover up fillers!  This also helps keep the weight down and gives a more durable finish that wont scratch off when you put the board down on the beach.

Each board is sanded by hand.  This makes each board unique and one of a kind.

We then finish with a clear UV stabilised epoxy gloss coat polished to a shine.  

All our boards are designed on specialist computer aided design software.  This defines the shape and allows us to understand the hydrodynamics including drag, centre of buoyancy and volume distribution. We can prototype new shapes quickly and adjust the design for the optimum board – we go from a concept to a test board within a week which gives us a fantastic feedback cycle to ensure we develop quickly.  Using CNC machining  we get great accuracy and repeatability of profiles that you could not get from hand shaping.

The foil Box is the most highly stressed point on the board and as such required us to design and engineer a solution to handle these loads.

We manufactured multiple inserts to transfer these high loads though the board and further strengthened this area with carbon. 

We are proud to say we have never had a foil box rip out or fail and believe we have created one of the strongest on the market. 

A ‘Gore’ self venting plug is fitted.  This prevents the building of pressure within the board, caused by changes in core temperature or altitude when flying. 

Angus comments....

The trend towards high aspect foils has required a change in board design.

The speed at which foils become effective is drastically different when comparing low and high aspect foils.

HA foils will stall if you try to pop up onto the foil to early. Thus the design is focused around creating a board that planes early and has low drag.  

We keep the NG under constant development.  This year we added a dropped concave deck.  This provides an assured feel under foot and improves rail to rail weight transfer resulting in a more responsive ride. Paired with a 2 or 3 strap set up with 5 hole adjustability allows you to tweak your stance.   In August 2023 we added a 90litre NG to extend the range – this has a slightly wider tail to provide the added buoyancy for larger riders.

Our “Built Better” Carbon Innegra layup gives a lightweight, ultra tough and durable board that wont ding every time it takes a knock.

Why buy Swift Foiling ?


With the big brands you are paying for cheap materials, freight from China, multiple reseller markups, and delivery miles. With SWIFT you are paying for quality materials - epoxy and carbon, producing solid builds that last. No markups - we sell direct to you.


With the big brands it can take up to a year for product innovations to appear on a mainstream board. Swift products are continuously developed and every board is current


When you buy direct, you deal with the people that design and build your board. If the wind is up, we are riding and testing every week of the year. We know what works.

Our boards are built to order.  The time for a standard board is currently 3 weeks from cleared payment.

We enjoy customising boards and will work with you to make yours unique and the best board on the beach!     Customisation does add a little delay as we cannot start the build until we have confirmed any changes with you.




Board size

Standard is 10 more litres than your bodyweight in kg. More experienced water-starters will go far smaller.

Deck options

SurfDek is a premium deckgrip custom made to each board. There is a choice of 8 colours and any design

Bottom options

We fit foil boxes in black. These are super strong. If you advise us your foil brand we will locate box appropriately. Please note that the longer foil box adds weight and should not be specified if not needed.
Please advise your intended foil brand (if known) as it can help optimise track location.
