Zeeko is proud to announce the release of our 3rd generation of hydrofoils. As the first kite brand to introduce hydrofoils on the world wide market in 2010/2011, we deliver a new generation of hydrofoils proving unbeatable experience in R&D and production process. For the 2015 season, we had several challenges : - An extremly high quality construction. The brand new 2015 2015 foil series are made in Europe using 100% High Modulus Carbon, shaped under high pressure in heated steel mold. - Carbon mast length 1m with an innovative profile, preventing ventilation effect at high speeds. Mast is made using UD and Bi-Axis carbon reducing torsion and flexion. - Carbon made and profiled fuselage. The fuselage is 25% more rigid thanks to its design. Also, the added flat part on the bottom of the fuselage increases by 10% the lift of the hydrofoil during the take off. This feature allows to use smaller wings and increases the maneuverability of the hydrofoil without detriment to take off speed. Also, thanks to the new design of the back wing, the fuselage length is reduced by 20% : the hydrofoil has tighter turns and control at high speed is improved. - 3 different front wings available. Suits all styles. We developed 3 different kinds of front wing : > Racing > Wave / Freeride / Beginners > Speed / Jumps Each wing is designed to fit the requirements of each riding style. Dihedral, profile design, thickness and center of effort are tuned to match the riding program. Only many years of knowledge and experience in terms of R&D and design can answer this. The result is unprecedented. - Adjustable yaw effect. The yaw effect can be very detrimental for a beginner, but for a wave rider, there is no fun in hydrofoil without the yaw effect decreasing the turning radius. To suit all riders, we developed vertical fins you can change to tune the yaw effect. The taller the vertical fin is, the less yaw effect you get, helping you during your first stages. To broaden your experiences, we developed several vertical fins (2 sizes), using the same distance between screws as twin tip fins? No need to cut your back wings anymore to ride in waves ! - Negative lift stabilizer wing. Stabilizer is a master piece in the foil design. It gives the right equilibrium to a foil. Its profile, its span, its rigidity influence directly the performance and the balance of the hydrofoil. After 24 months of R&D, we introduce a new back wing with 30% less span and with a profile allowing to keep the same balance on the hydrofoil at any speed. The foot pressure distribution is equal at varying speeds. All of our knowledge has been put in this back wing. - Finishing made in the mold. Graphics and finish process are made directly in the mold (new innovative building method). This way, there is no varnish added after the molding process, the finish is unbeatable and the precision of the design is maximal.

- French R&D and design, european production. Our 4 years experience in fiel of hydrofoil production allowed us to reach unmatched quality of our products. Therefore the highest quality we set as our standard is unreproducible in ÂŤ exotic Âť countries. We spent more than 12 months ti optimize our design and the production : numerical hydrodynamical calculations, heated steel molds, tests on the water, optimization of the carbon fiber location and quality.


Where the others just start to introduce hydrofoil on the market, we offer easy to ride hydrofoils with an unsurpassed performance. It requires a lot of experience to achieve these goals. And we have it !

Ride on flying carpet !

VERTICAL FIN Adaptative vertical fin : > with a tall vertical fin (3,5 cm) the hydrofoil is very stable (less yaw effect : good for beginners ans racers) > with a small vertical fin the hydrofoil is more fun to ride (for playing in waves). Distance between screws is same as for twin tip boards.
