Armstrong HA v2 Release

Armstrong HA v2 Release

The Essence Of Foiling

Building on the legacy of Armstrong's first HA (high aspect) foils initially released in 2021, the new HA range offers an unprecedented combination of rippability, easy pumping and endless glide that expands the potential of intermediate to expert surf, downwind and wing foilers. Seven sizes - 580, 680, 780, 880, 980, 1080, 1180cm2 deliver a full quiver of options. The new HA range is the essence of foiling.

Standout Performance

A newly developed section shape, outline and profile give the HA range a remarkable “best of both worlds” ability to carve beautiful lines and easily stay high in the pumping power zone for maximum wave riding potential.

The foil section is adjusted incrementally at points across the wingspan to provide a big boost to gliding efficiency and consistent lift at various bank angles and flight speeds. For those already riding the previous generation HA range, Armstrong recommends downsizing one foil size, for example: from the older HA925, move to the new HA880 to maintain familiar pumpability with a substantial overall performance increase. 


  • High aspect ratio - 9.63-9.8 AR across the range of sizes
  • Broad size range - Seven sizes from 580 to 1180 for intermediate through expert surf, downwind and wing foilers.
  • Evolutive section shape - The section shape is tweaked at various stations across the span for hyper-optimized water flow across the wing.
  • Flat profile - Enables responsive turning in carves, even at wider wingspans.
  • Toray carbon fiber - Built from premium Toray high and intermediate modulus carbon fiber for exceptional stiffness and light weight.
  • A+ System - Our proprietary connection system offers industry leading strength, durability and modularity.

Meticulously engineered to push your fun on the water

The HA range benefits from two years’ worth of research with a leading CFD team. These foils turn beautifully, and their section is optimized to stay with the wave, allowing smooth flowing connections between swell lines. Excellent lift means riders can drop down one full size from their previous HA foils for improved carving and speed range while maintaining an easy low end.

Built for progression

High aspect foils experience extreme torsional forces in the water, especially when carving. Armstrong crafted the HA range from premium Toray high and intermediate modulus carbon fiber for an ultra-strong, stiff and lightweight foil that performs exceptionally under the feet of intermediate to expert riders. Armstrong has taken all its knowledge from the V1 and souped it up with more speed and better carves.
