KOAL SURFACE 727 FOIL BOARD
The perfect shape for somebody new to foiling that wants that stable backfoot heavy riding style. Or for high end riders that want to be strapped in working on their aerials. A very consistent, medium-tempo, thin-profile board that will always have you in control.
A construction incorporating the core of a high end surfer wrapped in a bulletproof Surface Skin. In short, the lightweight feel of your favorite high-end surfer, the durability of your favorite wakeboard, and a skin that breaks up the water for less resistance.
BEFORE WE TELL YOU...
about why we took our time creating a line of foil products – let’s take a stroll down memory lane. Our journey in flight started out MODifiying foils in the summer of 1984 on the Colorado River. It was such a wild experience with speeds as slow as 5mph but the exhilaration as if we were going 25mph. We used foils on kneeboards, wakeboards and even combo skis – yeah true story - we flew on 2 skis (it was pretty sketchy). Mike, Herb and the rest of our crew had some amazing experiences riding all things levitation which led to us making the original Air Chair many moons ago. Foiling never left us – for the past four decades - levitation has been in our DNA as enthusiasts and as creators.
HERB O’BRIEN | A Hydrodynamic Visionary
The greatest mind in watersports, Born on July 27th (7/27) 1944, and is regarded as the pioneer of the modern-day compression molded waterski, wakeboard, wakeskate and wakesurfer along with forever changing watersports footwear. As one of the main founders of Ronix, his spirit of endless innovation will live on forever. Foiling is so unique – requiring the finest design elements of hydro and aerodynamics. If you are only focused on lift and speed – you might be sacrificing stability or response so finding that crucial balance between the two is everything.
ED O’BRIEN | An Aerodynamic Visionary
Herb’s father, was also born on July 27th (7/27) 1910 and grew up in the Seattle area. Ed had a landmark run in the field of aeronautics. One of the key engineers for the B17, B47 airplanes, the Bomarc, Minuteman missiles and also worked on the 727 airplane too. He carried his methodical mind over to developing the blueprint for the most historic man made private R&D center – Radar Lake.
In tribute to these brilliant people in their respective fields, combining the best attributes of foiling (hydro and aerodynamics) - we proudly present the 727 series: A collection of products paying homage to two people that both lived with a never-ending mindset of product revolution. For us, going to market requires a different expectation and vision and with that comes a totally different timetable.
|Intermediate Weight Range
|Advanced Weight Range

There isn’t a very direct coloration between board size and rider size.
We have had people 230 lbs. preferring the 4’1 and other people 175 lbs. preferring the 4’8.
Since there isn’t much contact between the board and the water determining the board push and drive the way that there is on a wakesurf board – instead size is determined by ability and style.
Benefits of a 4’1 length
- Greater overall response
- Easier cutbacks
- More power in your pumping
Benefits of a 4’8 length.
- Easier deep water starts – if you are new to foiling you in addition to a shorter mast and a balance front wing this 4’8 length will help with your learning curve to foiling
- More control, stability, and comfort in rougher water conditions
Purchasing an individual board (not a complete foil kit) - you will need to individually purchase the foil track hardware or any other required hardware.
Purchasing a complete foil kit - every complete Ronix set up comes with all necessary hardware, protective sleeves, bags, etc.
