F4 Foils is foiling specific company that have been pioneers in the development and wind, wing and sup foiling designs. F4 is about passion – for the sport, speed, racing and quality. Hydrofoils uniquely require the combination of 3D design, fluid dynamics, composites, and processes. In 2008 Al Mirel, Chris Radkowski, and Ben Bamer –windsurfing and kitesurfing friends started F4 as a windsurfing fin company. Together they brought decades of experience with the sport, racing pedigree, engineering knowledge, Phd level math skills and endless enthusiasm and passion for the water sports.
F4 began with building prototypes in garages, and over the course of the following few years won PWA races, speed records, and delivered countless hours of excitement and enjoyment for our customers. They use cutting edge technology, manufacturing and the valuable feedback from F4 team riders and partners to deliver both recreational as well as race proven premium products to the end users in all of the markets they serve. F4 designs and manufacture foils several other brands and have become known as the design leaders in many different segments. F4 focus is simple – to design the best hydrofoils possible for each application. You can meet our core team on the beaches of San Francisco every day all season long.
