It certainly appears so from that promo video. I wonder if they are teaming up with Zeeko to produce the foils for them? The end of the video seemed to show a dedicated foil board with no adapter plate fitted. I'm a big fan of Shinn boards so looking forward to see what they come up with.

some similarities but also some differences to the zeeko stuff.

The main wing shape with that little tab at the trailing edge and even mounting surface looks very much like a zeeko, and so does the nose shape of the fuse, but the wing is top mounted, the stab is a very different shape and the plate is not open ended like the zeeko.

Agree. Front wing is Zeeko like but the rear wing is not. Looks like they've built some structural rigidity into the foil board rather than the piecemeal carbon plate which I thought was kind of a clunky solution. The deck padding seems to have an unusual contour to it as well. Looking forward to more info on these products.

Looking forward to seeing a Shinn foil.


I really hope the quality of their foil matches that of their boards. I am expecting something good from them, they better not disappoint.

Aren't shinn and zeeko both made in Poland? I wouldn't be surprised if the shinn masts are made from the same extrusions as zeeko.

Given their recent collaboration, I'd say you are probably correct.

Shinn have previously acknowledged great products and re-sold them, ie BRM paipo and shinnster.
