Takuma have a strong heritage in hydrofoiling and are producing some of the most innovative products on the market at the moment.
The Helium series is a case in point. It is a more accessible hydrofoil with a lower aspect ratio and a slightly thicker profile, completing Takuma’s foil range with four available sizes. It is sold as a complete foil only and can be upgraded with any other wings from the Kujira range. It comes as standard with a 75cm mast and 65cm fuselage.
It is unique in its design with these unusual looking tubercules on the leading edge of the wings inspired by the Humpback whale’s pectoral fins, combined with upturned winglets for the front wing and downturned tips for the stabiliser. It’s visually and hydrodynamically a unique design, channelling the water flow through the wing profile with an aim to reduce drag and offer a faster, more controllable, and sensitive hydrofoil.
