J Shapes Limited is based in Raglan, New Zealand. All the design, testing and construction of our foils is done right here. Raglan is one the best playground in the world with constant wind and waves. We chose to live and work here for the quality of life and resources that are available in NZ. NZ is all about composites, foiling and surfing, so setting up a hydrofoil business here was a no brainer.
