AXIS 2019 Kite Short S-Series Customizable Foil Package
The AXIS Kite Short S-Series Customizable Foil is a freeride foil system like no other. While the S-Series is the surf foil platform, we have selected the S-Series foil with the Short fuselage and the 440 rear wing as a great platform for a super stable, more manageable, surfy kite foil that can freeride and wave ride with a kite like to other foil on the market.
The AXIS S-Series construction, is incredibly strong, stiff, and responsive under your feet. Each component is rigid, and connected strongly, creating a foil system that will transfer your input from your feet much quicker and with stability. When we compared our newly designed mast (19mm thickness) to other masts on the market (15mm thick), we found that our mast is 224% stiffer. A huge improvement in feel and performance. You need to ride our foils to feel the difference.
The AXIS S-Series 680mm Carbon Front wing is perfect for your big surf, tow-in, and Kite Wave foiling sessions. 2019 graphics on the wings give you all possible measurements so you can best compare and quickly swap pieces or get new accessories for your foil.
The AXIS S-Series 750mm Carbon Front wing is a bit slower than the 680 and lifts effortlessly. Ideal for slow surfy turns and ultra light wind kite foiling sessions.

The AXIS S-Series Carbon Rear Wing 400mm (wingspan) is the carving specialist. It's the most turny and performance oriented rear wing on our collection.
We chose the Ultra Short fuselage for the S-Series kite foil as it's the fastest turning out of our fuselages. Together with the 400 carbon rear wing it makes a fun, quick turning setup that works incredibly well for kite foiling, as well as big wave surf foiling.
Additional Details about our Foils:
For our wings we utilize a non-laminar flow foil section, which means the surface of the wing is less critical than a typical laminar flow foil, so scratches or abrasions won’t cause a noticeable change in performance of the foil. AXIS’ wings are designed with a non-laminar flow foil section which means that they are easy to ride and easy to maintain.
The red anodized aluminum mast sections connect perfectly with precision CNC machined fuselage and base plate. Stainless steel torx screws connect the components with included premium Tef Gel Anti-seize lubricant for maximum corrosion resistance. It all packs into a handy travel case.
The AXIS CNC cut Base Plate has been precisely shaped so the mast sections fit in a 20mm deep socket. This provides the strongest junction and eliminates unwanted movement. While the standard mast included in the AXIS Aluminium Freeride Foil setup is the 90cm (35.4 inches), we have optional mast lengths to follow the rider progression and local conditions.
All of our components use the 316 SS Torx screws to connect. After extensive testing, we have found that Torx doesn’t strip as easily and our customers can get a tighter connection with it. A Torx driver is also included in the kit. Also included is a tube of Tef-Gel anti-sieze lubricant to protect against corrosion in the harsh marine environment.
The AXIS S-Series Foil package comes in a travel case that can store multiple mast sections and wings. In addition to the foil, we offer a range of optional foil accessories, foil board bags and foil covers.
