The new Takuma Kujira foil is a new type of hydrofoil, with shape inspired by the pectoral fin of the Humpback whale. Kujira in Japanese means "whale", an honour tributed to this majestic animals by the Takuma's designign team.
The Kujira's design is been created by top designer Laurent Borgna and Cyril Coste, the Takuma's founder. The two were wonderig about how such a big animal could reach such high speeds. They finally figured out that the bumps in the pectoral area of the Humpback Whale have a dramatic effect on its hydrodynamics.
Those tubercles that you can immediately notice when looking at the Kujira hydrofoil emulate exactly thas function, so providing enormous speed and lift out of the water.
This means that the Takuma Kujira Hydrofoil can be ridden in a smaller size if compared to traditional foil.
