The liberty. No harness just gliding and flying.

I used the Swing 5m and 4.2m, Drift S 4’10 33L by KT and the Phantom 1280 by F-One. For foilsurfing and freestyle. I like the lightness and the maneuverability that it brings.

Not mine but the one I saw last year with all the F-One team during our dealers meeting in Mauritius.
