Pump foiling has arrived and the industry takes note. Armstrong now joins some of the few brands who pay attention to the fast growing sport. Still, here at the Stand Up Magazin we feel flatwater pump foiling is still under rated.
This might change with the newly release APF: Armstrong Pump Foil. They promise to be pitch stable to help you build a natural pumping cadence. Are easy to fly with ultra low stall speeds and is co-designed with the aerospace engineer Chris Porter. (Principal Engineer at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory)

Achieve maximum time on foil
If you’re just learning or already seasoned, a forgiving foil that helps keep you flying makes all the difference when building your pumping skills. The APF’s outline shape, straight leading edge and high camber foil section offer ultra low stall speeds, quick acceleration and a relaxed, efficient pumping cadence optimised for exploring flat water or cruising effortlessly on micro bumps.
Set up for rock solid stability
The APF delivers pitch stability in key phases of flight without completely sacrificing sensitivity and manoeuvrability for expert riders. The specially designed high camber Pump 202 stabiliser works in harmony with the APF to provide excellent pitch stability throughout the entire pump cycle. This solid feeling underfoot lets you focus on building your technique and developing efficiency to go further than ever before.
Designed with Chris Porter
Designed in collaboration with career aerospace engineer Chris Porter, the APF foil shares its DNA with his reputed Crisp 333 and 381 stabilizers. Our approach to finding gains across all areas of the foil design have led to a pump foil that’s truly designed from tip to tip for the discipline.
