That looks super slick.

Have always like the look of their foils. Just so clean.

Wish they would make something with a little more med aspect wing for the non race market.

Love to try one just the same.

Taaroa stuff is fantastically made!

Really solid and finished to a great standard.

Keen to see this.

Their manufacturing QA/QE is top notch. If you were going to start a one-design foiling fleet, Taaroa is the brand to go with because besides maybe Levitaz they're the only company that can mass produce a product that would pass race measurement for uniformity. Every foil they make is basically identical...really consistent product.

So what are the fresh news about this baby ?

Seems like top racers are still on Mike's lab , Banga/Enata or Levitaz...

Yes for pure speed they are on Sword but Sword 2 with speed wings, not Sword RS.

Dear Martin

My name is Jorge Cruz.
I bought a Taaroa Sword RS #014 from of WindAddiction Puerto Rico on May 3 2017. I noted in this days that the board has started flexing a little while I was riding it and it started deforming in the middle of the board bottom like some groove like it has been squeezed in the bottom. I was wondering if this has any warranty since it has less than 2 months of use. I'm sending you a pair of pics the repairman took during the reparation. I do not have any pic prior to sanding because I did not thought about warranty before but a friend told me to write to you because other brands use to help people with this problems. I have another Taaroa Sword 2 and it is of great quality that's the reason I bought this second one. I don't have any doubt about the quality of your product for me it is top quality. If you need any additional information let me know. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,

Jorge Cruz

Hi jorge !

Very sorry about what happen about your board, it's very difficult for me to evaluate what happen, specially because i don't have picture of the board before, it's impossible for me to know if it's a warranty problem ...
Anyway, i can propose to you a discount on a wing or foil cover for the trouble

let me know

best regards
