Ride Engine 2021 Hydrofoil Release

Ride Engine foil range

Nothing says “Ride What You Can’t” like foiling


Ride Engine say that foiling is the ultimate middle finger to convention. Foiling breaks all the rules of what was thought possible in the waves. Foiling lets us ride the un-ridable. Surf the un-surfable. Shred the un-shredable. Foiling means more fun in more places, more often.

That’s why they have launched their new complete hydrofoil range which includes a free-riding setup specifically suited to kite foiling.

Introducing the ‘Bird Machine’ kite foil board and it’s perfectly sized partner the ‘Futura 76 low aspect foil kit’ 


The Board: 

The Bird Machine – It’s not too big, getting in the way, and not too small, to make things hard.

  • Smart design with precise rail chines.
  • Bottom shape that breaks the surface tension and promotes deflection.
  • Kicked nose that helps achieve early planing and eliminate nose pearling.
  • Kick tail to help you pump efficiently though the lulls.
  • Strong lightweight construction.

The Foil: 

The magical Futura 76 Manta wing, which has a large, low-aspect shape incorporating an Inverted Gull Wing outline that gives it much better top-end speed and easy to engage pumping performance than many foils of similar size and surface area.

Available Kite Foil Package Includes: 

Bird Machine board (3’10”), Alloy mast: 71cm (28”), Alloy Pedestal mount, Alloy fuselage 61cm (24”), Manta carbon 76cm front wing (76cm span), Futura carbon 42 rear stabilizer wing (42cm span), Rear wing mounting shim, Titanium hardware kit, Futura neoprene wing covers, Component travel case.

Ride Engine say:

From surf to SUP to wing, hydrofoiling has opened doors to us that we never thought possible. Now, we have epic surf sessions on days when we would have previously never considered even paddling out. Spots that were considered mediocre are now hydrofoil heavens. Light-wind days that once squashed our stoke have been transformed into magical days of endless flying.  

Here at Ride Engine, we are proud to offer a line of hydrofoil craft that’s spearheaded by the board shaping and surfing intelligence of Ride Engine founder Coleman Buckley. Fine-tuned and tested over countless days on the water by the entire Ride Engine crew, we know you will find the perfect Ride Engine foil board that’ll fulfill your passion of flying over the water by whatever means you choose. 


Not enough swell, not enough wind… not any more. Ride What You Can’t.
