The Vortex 175 is bigger than than the 150 model with more surface area. It is more stable and but still designed to be ridden like a shortboard. Designed for a balance of speed, turning, and lift without breaching.
The 175 has great speed, stability and a locked-in feel due to the double bottom concave on the wing. Our 175 wing is also used by the pro foil guys and our top team riders who like hi-performance to carve and ride the wave. Now most of them are preferring the 150 model for even more performance.
Vortex 175 is also great for tow foiling. With the added speed and less thickness in the leading edge, it keeps you locked in and means less chance of your foil breaching at high speeds.
You can unlock the tail with a chopped (smaller) 12¨ tail wing option, adding to the speed and free flow riding style. For a softer, less locked in ride choose the down-sweep tail “the Carve 16” which also makes pumping easier. The rudder tail "Flareseries” 12 or 14 is the recommended tail wing for beginners or kiters.
