IQFoil

Summary

iQFoil is a windsurfing windfoiling class selected by World Sailing to replace the RS:X for the 2024 Summer Olympics.[2] The discipline has similarities to Formula Windsurfing, however a notable difference is that sailors only use one sail. The sail size is 9m2 for the men and 8m2 for the women.[3] The rider has a choice between using a hydrofoil or a conventional 68 cm fin.[4]
