With foilsports growing quickly in popularity across Australia, our technical gear has developed to best suit foil athletes. Take your foil sport to the next level with a life jacket, wetsuit, hat, sunglasses or clothing suited for foiling, tow-foiling, foilboarding and wingfoiling.

What should I wear while wing foiling in Summer? 

Vaikobi proudly supports the Australian Foiling Squad, with several athletes ripping around our waterways repping our technical gear. Our Vaikobi flex pants are super lightweight, breathable and durable and are the perfect addition to your training session. Our lightweight UV rashies are the perfect addition to hot days to keep the sun off and are quick dry for the most comfortable training session. 

Best Wetsuits for Foil Sports 

Our Flexforce wetsuits are perfect for foil sports in Summer and Winter. They are designed to work with your body, providing full mobility where it matters when performing difficult manoeuvres. They are available in 1.5mm (best for Summer) and 3.0mm (best for winter). Mix and match wetsuit tops and pants according to personal preferences, or try our long johns for more coverage.  

Accessories for Foil Sports

Vaikobi’s collection of caps, visors and polarised sunglasses are also essential items for your kit bag, in our perpetual battle against UV rays. Our PFDs are designed to the highest safety level for inshore sailing sports (ISO 12402-5 Level 50 certified) and have a sleek profile for minimal restriction. Our VX Race PFDs are most popular for foilsports, but for athletes looking for additional features our VXP PFD selection contains a pocket and hose tabs compatible with a hydration bladder


All Vaikobi PFDs are super lightweight and comfortable, but to choose the best life jacket style for your needs, please check out the information and videos on the V3, VXP and VX.
