Ensis TWIST 1Board 5Sports
5-fold performance with the ENSIS TWIST 1Board5Sports for versatile athletes or the whole family. The revolutionary concave outline brings great advantages in all sports. The wide nose and tail offer exceptional stability and control in water, when accelerating and when flying. Landing in water the wide nose enables smooth nosedives. The different rocker lines of the double channel bottom shape ensure the perfect angle of the foil, control in your bottom turns and jibes while windsurfing and wave riding yet keeping the loose feeling.
TWIST 95, 125, 145
Wing and SUP foil performance
The TWIST is great for all riders who love the loose feeling of riding a strapless long board. The board is very easy to get started even in choppy waters and it keeps a straight line while accelerating. Straps can be mounted.
Ideal foil (move it to the very front)
– ENSIS FLOW 1550 for wing foiling
– ENSIS PACER 2000 for light wind/heavier rider and for SUP foiling
Windsurf foil performance
The TWIST is perfectly balanced to use as a windsurf foil board. You’ll love the stability and control while accelerating, flying and jibing.
Rigg position: Further back than when windsurfing with a fin.
Foil position: Start with the middle position and move step by step back.
Footstrap position: The back foot should be slightly behind the mast of the foil. Test until you’re comfortable.
This family friendly concept board with a thruster fin set up is great for all windsurfing levels. Mount the US fin box covers to make the board faster. Choose the most forward position for your rigg and move it step by step further back to find your ideal set up.
For kids: Move the two side fins from the tail to the center position
Ideal sail sizes: up to 6.5m2
SUP wave and flat water performance
The very compact shape with the fast rocker line and the thruster fin set up make the TWIST an ideal SUP wave board. Mount the US fin box covers before hitting the water. Once in the waves you feel the advantages of the concave outline: your bottom turns and cut backs haven’t been easier.
For flat water performance use the center fin set up. The double channel and the concave outline transform the TWIST into a perfect cruise SUP.
Ultimate stability in the water
The engineered wide nose and tail give you the important stability to get started or to wait for wind even in the choppiest water. The perfectly distributed volume supports you in your balance.
The wide tail allows you to step into the back strap before you start and stays nicely balanced in the water.
While jibing and carving the ultra thin back rails grab deep into the water and guide you smoothly through choppy waters.
Quick takeoff after touchdown
Using the TWIST with a foil, the bevelled rails ensure a quick takeoff after a touchdown.
Wave riding and foiling performance
The dual rocker concept with the channel shape technology offers two rockers in on board combined: for wave riding and foiling.
The channel rocker is a very flat and fast rocker. The rocker enables the perfect angle from the foil to the board.
Wave riding performance
The side rocker gives the board its wave riding characteristics. Once you tilt the TWIST it will carve like a wave board and leave a deep track in the wave.
Planing speed and agility
The tail shape is for plenty of planing speed yet reactive in short, tight turns.
Control and high maneuverability
Once you accelerate, the concave outline and the compact shape keep the board going in the desired direction. The concave deck shape gives you all the control you need.
