2019 Liquid Force Galaxy Board and Impulse Foil rated one of the best progression setups by the Kitesurfing Magazine test team.
Liquid Force Impulse Foil
The Impulse Foil rounds out some of the ground breaking kite foil performance from Liquid Force. The carbon front wing has a middle-of-the-road size for overall surface area, and it sits on a 65 cm, Aluminum mast and a light carbon fuselage and wing construction. This gives the Impulse an ideal mix of lift and drive. Unchanged in shape for 2019, the Impulse was a leader for easy carving and smooth control at moderate speeds. It remains one of the top choices for a foil that can carve nicely at slow speeds but still feels comfortable when driving with more power and speed. The Impulse doesn’t have as much low end get up and ago, as some of the jumbo surf foils in this test, but it doesn’t top out in speed as quickly and will carry into higher winds and more kite pressure with great comfort and control. The Impulse Foil is a great choice for any aspiring or advancing foil rider that likes to ride with a little more power and driver from the kite but still want the easy cruising and easier carving ability of a surf style foil.
Liquid Force Galaxy
Board Size: 4’2” x 19”
The Liquid Force Galaxy is a Foil deck that you can both learn with and build on your kite foiling skills on. You won’t outgrow it anytime soon. It has all the key features that want in foil deck including: full deck pad, no nose design with volume where its needed, three or center line footstrap options, bottom shaping to help disperse water, and thin enough rails for strapless water starts. Many of the larger volume, entry level foil decks can start to feel a bit big once you’re up and foiling. The Galaxy strikes the right balance between having enough float and surface area that doesn’t frustrate lesser foil skills but it’s also compact and thin enough to feel comfortable for the more advanced riders. Liquid Force kept the same shape with the nice beveled rails and comfortable deck pad with a concave top deck shape, but they lightened the construction without sacrificing durability for 2019. The Galaxy is great choice for any level rider and its track system will work with any plate mounted foil.
