The Gadget is freshly redesigned for 2023. We collaborated with foil expert John Akerman to develop an exciting new foil-specific board. He requested a light-weight, minimalistic deck to execute a variety of airs and flips he’s working on and we nailed it. The thin skim style construction sinks under the water nicely, making it easier than a buoyant surf style board to situate before getting pulled up. The coffin outline offers forgiveness while the wide squash tail provides extra stability and control. The improved angled front foot strap delivers a natural comfortable feel for your stance rather than the previous straight vertical configuration. It is built with our high end skimboard construction using Carbon Innegra Vertical (CI-V) weave and epoxy resin for superior strength. The Gadget features an adjustable 10.75” long track mount for the foil.

Phase Five turned to GoFoil to offer the ultimate high performance, lightweight package for experienced foilers. GoFoil utilizes a very simplistic approach to their hydrofoil design. The plate, mast, and fuselage are all one piece. The advantages of one-piece construction are increased stiffness, superior strength, no weak points around connections and less metal parts. It is built with 100% prepreg epoxy infused carbon fiber for the most light weight high quality process. The front and rear wings are CNC shaped PVC cores with outer skins of 100% carbon. It is designed with simplicity in mind and straightforward to assemble. The front and back foils attach to the fuselage with one screw, simple.
The GoFoil x Phase Five package features a 31.5” plate mast paired with the GT 1250 front wing and 14.5” tail wing. The “GT” stands for “Go To”. The GT Foil series is an ultra responsive, controlled and smooth performance foil. This series is so reactive that you can get the wing tips out of the water during a hard turn and still recover. The GT has superior pitch control—the up and down movement you feel when riding. Controlling pitch helps you go faster with more confidence. The GT’s pump extremely well with solid initial lift and great low end. The low-end performance of the GT allows you to glide longer without dropping off foil. This is the foil package team rider John Akerman prefers to ride.
