Saw a guy almost getting barreled on Instagram this week. Wave was overhead and he almost got it. So the current wing foils are capable of riding hollow waves. The only question is, is that best or easiest. But we are way beyond what any of us thought would happen now 2 years in.

SCB, Iíll have to do a video of pulling into tubes on my Foils. Itís the only way to show it. I donít think Iíve ever not come out of one.
 Give me a week to get the camera and mount it somewhere, maybe on my Gath instead of the nose of the board.

Delta foils I think, from the YouTube video I saw ?
 I did these curved foils myself back in 2008 so itís new technology to you guys but not to me.
 Iím building a Gath-Cam and Iíll do a video this week, if the waves are willing, of  steep take-offs, real drops, bottom turns, tube riding and stalls on average beach break waves.

Got a $20 camera on my Gath. I not keen on using a selfie stick in the surf so hopefully the Gath-Cam will work out fine. Iíll give it a go tomorrow.

Bean,thatís astute. Only people who regularly use helmets would pick that up.
 Hopefully I can score a decent wave tomorrow and show a complete routine of manouvers on a single wave and show how easy it is to foil right in the pocket.
 My only worry is turning the camera on before the wave and not after !

First time with a camera and got crap footage. I didnít know that the casing fogs up in hot weather.



 So Iíll try another POV next week with a GoPro and wrist strap.

I forgot I had some videos on Vimeo from 6 years ago.
 This ones just take offs and pull ins on beach barrels.
Not a great POV but you can see Im foiling in the steepest part of the wave.

I literally can't make heads from tails on that video, which way is the camera facing?

I'm looking forward to seeing a foil tube ride. Do you have any still photos from the beach of someone in the tube on a foil?

Hi Fishman,the cameras on the nose facing backwards.i only did several videos to see how the foils rides in the water and how much mast flex there was.
 That video was of a dozen beach tubes and I had to stay high in the tube to prevent the foil hitting the sand. I really donít foil with anyone else but if I had a Red Bull film crew Iíd be able to get better video and stills.

Interesting that these computer geeks designed a foil even more raked back than the Fanatic Aero.

Here it is...
 They redesigned a Slingshot foil.

Looks about 45 deg sweep.
