REAL Review

The Armstrong 800 Complete Foil kit is building steam amongst kiters as the kite foil that will hold up to heavy use, crazy conditions and is so stable that beginners will progress rapidly on it.  This foil is also developing an underground following for tow in foil surfing.

Armie Armstrong got fed up with all of the foils he was buying breaking, seizing together and not working like he wanted them to, so he put together an all star team and Armstrong Foils were born.  These are top quality foils with unique performance characteristics that make the foils really easy to learn with yet all the top pros are frothing to get their hands on them.

What We Like
  • Armstrong took the extra time and money to make a really top quality product. Their quality control is amazing and you can see it when you hold one of these foils in person.
  • This is the most stable foil on the market. You can't understand it until you have ridded a bunch of foils and have them vibrate like made through white water, prop wash or surface chop. Then you get on the Armstrong and you don't feel anything but the foil effortlessly gliding under your feet. This is a huge benefit for beginners that will allow you to have a more stable platform.
  • There is no learning curve. You get better as soon as you start riding this foil.
  • The mast has a tapered design so that it is wide and super stiff at the top and narrower with some flex at the bottom. This allows it to absorb vibrations and it helps you get shorter radius turns.
  • Armstrong pulled in experts from the Team New Zealand America's Cup foil design team as well as Robbie Wittall from Ozone kites to work on the foil designs and create their proprietary carbon lay ups.
  • All the hardware is high end stainless steel and these screws turn into titanium. This means that there will be no corrosion ever. You can leave it together for as long as you want and it won't corrode. Also the stainless going into titanium has a little more bite so the screws won't wiggle loose.
  • The wing covers and travel case are so simple and well thought out. They are super functional and simple.
What We Don't Like
  • These foils are expensive. You get what you pay for and it is worth spending up to get an Armstrong.
  • There are two different size tail wing screws that differ by 2mm. The diagram on the instruction sheet in the case very clearly shows this but some have been thrown off so double check the screw length.
Why You Want an Armstrong Foil

The 800 ticks all the boxes for recreational performance foil. You will go plenty fast with this foil and if you venture out into the waves, or super choppy conditions, you will really learn and appreciate the quality, stability and smooth ride of the CF800 Foil Kit. No matter your ability level, you can appreciate the Armstrong Foils. They learned what fails on all other foils and taken the time to address these issues.

Great Set up forTow Foiling and Kiting

This is a great foil set up for tow foiling larger waves and kite foiling. It's really stable at high speeds (I've gone over 35mph on this wing) and bigger waves, compared to other wings in which you'd be overpowered . I enjoy riding this with wing with the 212 as the combo allows you to turn on a dime and fly all over a wave. If you experience some chop or white water the wing doesn't vibrate and you can fly straight through the turbulence. Armstrong is a light weight carbon set up and extremely durable if you do hit the bottom.

Its also a great performance end wing for kite foiling. Its stable, responsive, great for transitions and will push you level of riding. It has significantly less lift then the 1200 so it requires a bit more breeze, but once the wind hits the teens this wing rocks. Its also a killer wing to kite foil in the waves. The modular foil breaks down quickly into a small bag, which is great for storage and traveling.

Wow! This foil is a joy to experience!

I have been kite foiling for 4 years now, and the Armstrong CF800 wing is my all time favorite for kiting!

I am 170 lbs, and the 800 is my preferred setup for kiting. I used my 800 wing with my Armstrong 72cm mast, and found it worked well kiting in the ocean even with some small swell. I got a 72cm mast for surfing, but get the 85cm mast if you plan to mainly kite.

I love the feel of the 800 wing and how efficiently it can go upwind, even in light conditions. The control is knife like precision, and if you have ridden another foil you will immediately enjoy and notice the difference. It's super light and feels very responsive under your feet. No vibration at high speeds, which I have experienced in many cheaper foils.

The best thing about the Armstrong setup is that it has the best build quality of any foil product I have ever seen. When you put it together, you can appreciate the high quality materials and attention to every detail. This thing is built to last, and it fits together perfectly even after taking it apart a few times. Other foils I have had experience with will become hard to take apart over time without constant cleaning and grease. The Armstrong fuselage has a titanium core that is the best material to prevent salt corrosion over time. The kit is very easy to assemble and take apart as well.

The performance of this foil is amazing, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy the sport of foiling!

I'll take it!

My hair is still wet, sunscreen is on my face and I’m smiling from ear to ear with “Foil Face” after a session on the Armstrong CF 800 and CF 1200 Wings.
I’m an experienced kite surfer that spends a lot of time kiting and surfing on foil. This session was in perfect 15mph winds with a 9m Slingshot SST kite. The foils were paired with the Liquid Force Galaxy board. The 800 was paired with the 4’2” and the 1200 with the 4’8”
On both foils, my kite foiling progressed in under an hour! I’m blown away.
The 1200 had incredible lift with a very smooth takeoff, felt stable and in control at all speeds. I was able to pump it downwind straight at the kite and experience some really sweet moments of glide. This is a great go to kite and surf foil for all conditions.
The 800 is fast and performance oriented. It didn’t have the quick lift of the 1200 but once on foil the performance was incredible. I progressed with the fastest carving transitions I’ve ever been able to experience.
I didn’t want the session to end on either foil and look forward to future sessions on Armstrong Foils.

Ultra ripable!

Wow, this foil is no joke. After riding the Armstrong CF800 wing while kite foiling, I am pretty impressed with not only how it rides but the quality as well.

The 800 wing RIPS. I used this wing along with a 10m kite while in the ocean, then another day on a 9m kite in the waves as well. The 800 wing needs a bit of push to get up on foil, but once you're up, you are flying. All around free-ride is predictable and really nice. I also took it into some waves where I was able to shut the kite off and surf it. Its not quite a surf wing that will produce a ton of forward movement on its own, but with a kite it works great. I found when going upwind on this foil when you are fully powered, this thing is like a bullet. I was cruising the length of my town back and forth faster that I thought possible with a kite. Downwind on it is very stable and controlled, even when going mach 10. I'm really excited to use this for flatwater foiling too.

The quality of the foil is obvious. There is tons of attention to detail in manufacturing and hardware. The system of joining the wings/fuselage/mast together is very creatures and seems to be rock solid. These guys hit a home run. A+
