Every size of the Flux excels in prone and wing foiling and is entirely focused on increasing the performance of intermediate and advanced riders. This is especially noticeable in the larger sizes whose shapes have not been compromised to suit beginners learning to wing.
Depending on rider weight and skill, each size fills a unique niche and has been designed accordingly. The smaller boards have a proportionally wider shape to provide sufficient deck space and volume. As the size increases, the outline is slimmed down, especially in the nose and tail. This reduces swing weight and aerodynamic drag while scaling the volume and length required to get up to foiling speed with less swell or wind energy.
The deck is comfortable and secure; zero-rocker and light concave through the standing area provide direct heel to toe pressure and a consistent feel when using any foil.
Touch down performance
Glide right through the most aggressive touchdowns with the Flux's hydrodynamic hull. Compared to other boards it barely feels like you've come off foil.
Made in the EU
The Flux is built to last. The Appletree factory in Portugal applies a full carbon layup over a CNC cut closed-cell foam core. Vacuum resin infusion technology is used to saturate the cloth and achieve the ideal fiber to resin ratio to optimize stiffness and durability. This process is what allows Appletree to create a permanent bond to their proprietary foam core, and uniquely results in a board that will not be damaged by water ingress - even if the outer skin is damaged. Along with their world renowned track reinforcing tech, the Flux is a board you can rely on to maintain peak performance for years to come.
Low Drag Handle
A mini fin provides a streamlined and lightweight handle for carrying the larger boards. The FCS system allows the fin to be reversed to provide two handle positions to balance a range of foil mounting positions.
An FCS II box and G10 fin come standard with every 60L, 72L, and 84L Flux.
I have had a chance to use my Flux board for several months now and have been amazed by the performance in a variety of conditions. In light wind and low chop, it builds speed quickly and gets you up on foil. In heavier winds and chop, it takes off immediately and touches down smoothly. The board is long, but not too long. The narrow width makes it so much easier to get leaned way over when going up wind. The length and nicely rounded rails save you from crashes if you make a mistake and get leaned over too far. This board is only a semi-sinker for me, but I am amazed at how you can start with the nose under water and then get it to pop up effortlessly once you start moving forward. I would highly recommend the Omen Flux for anyone that is looking for a great all-around board.
I was a little concerned about dropping down from my old 105 litre board to the 84 (I am 85kg, intermediate, aged 69) Well I needn't have worried, the board is fantastic, easy to get going and stable. This shape is just the way to go, perfect for light winds and everyone who has tried it loves it. Well done Omen!
Thank you for such amazing board! Got a Flux 72L. I'm thrilled and super stoked with the product. At 65kg, I'm able to achieve an impressive average speed of 21/22 knots while riding the 700/6m in 10/11kts wind. That's fantastic performance and a testament to the capabilities of the board. Keep up the great work and enjoy your rides!
It's night and day compared to my old board.
The Flux 36L is everything I was looking for in a prone board.
I'm 85kg and this board takes waves easily (much easier than my old board) despite its small size, which is a big change for me coming from a 5'5 - 35L board.
The board is so efficient that once you've caught the wave, it's very easy to take off and glide along the wave, even if the board is completely touch down
I'm still only an intermediate, but with this board I have a better connection between my feet and the board, which means I can pump better and ride longer, and when the board hits the water it bounces back easily.
I think most prone boards are going to be like that.
Congratulations Omen, you've done a great job. Imo this is clearly the best board for prone foiling.
I’ve cycled through a lot of boards on my winging journey. I always wanted a 1-board solution that could handle the broadest range of conditions. The Omen Flux 72L is it (I’m 83KG).
Last season I was switching between a 75L wing board for higher winds (16mph+) and a 107L downwind board for low winds. At the margin, both were compromises. 75L couldn’t get up in low wind, the downwind board was overkill when the breeze picked up (and I hate going back to the car to re-rig!)
Enter the Flux. As I hoped, the narrow outline and displacement hull made getting up way easier than my 75L board - even in low winds where I would have taken out the 107.
I’m super exited to ride this board this season and see how my progression goes. Less faffing around with gear and more water time!
