This is a collection of the best Foiling Videos available. 

Anything from
1)   Great surfing
2)   Instructional
3)   Inspirational & 
4)   Highlighting the latest breakthroughs.

SUP/Surf Foiling mania started with this video of KAI.  Making the connection from one wave to the next. 

Others had foiled, KAI was the first to do this:

He's no Kai but it looks like he wants to be.  Two time Mavericks Champion talks surf, SUP and Foils:

Of course, he’s best known for his big wave exploits, but Twiggy Baker is a “just add water” kind of man–someone who can surf well on a variety of crafts, whether it’s under a kite, with a paddle, or on a giant wave. 

That, more and more, is a hallmark of a truly great surfer.

But even the truly great surfers have to learn something new sometimes. “I enjoy feeling like a kook again,” he says. “Learning something new–and with foiling, if there’s a few people in the lineup, I’m at the end. I’m the worst surfer in the lineup.” - The Inertia

This is called Black Hand Reef it is ~ 1/2 mile south of Mavericks.  The swell was 18 ft @ 16 seconds.  You can see an example of the swell size from the Jetski in the background.

I love how he is foiling along the crest of the wave and still seems to be fully powered. This is something you can't do without a foil. Also love at the end how he takes mad gas and comes out rock steady. Sooo sick!!!! I noticed that when I am foiling, the foil acts as an anchor in turbulent situations, where on a regular board I would have been blown up. Especially going over whitewater on the way out. Its super nerve racking but I believe I can get through worse whitewater on my foil than on my regular sup.

I'm still waiting for someone to try foil surfing the back of a wave. I'm reasonably certain a foil could venture back there once it's rolling and stay powered up. In fact, I'm pretty much nearly almost totally certain. If you can ride along the crest you can ride the back of it. It's probably a problem of mental pictures of what works--I see in most videos that as soon as a foiler goes over the crest they pull out, but there's the same amount of energy moving in the same direction. A tiny difference in vector force from gravity's assistance in the direction of travel, but not enough, I think, to really preclude it from working. A longer mast would help.

You're getting pretty good foiling Beasho. Who needs waves? I noticed near the end of Zane's video, he bunny hops the reef near shore. That shows a whole nother level of awareness / skill. I'm just waiting till they (kids) learn to just skim the foil on top of the water like a floater.

Beasho you are getting that thing down!  Really nice ride, you looked totally stable and in control, which is no easy feat.  Was that just a swell wave or did it break a little when you took off?

Post by: Beasho on November 28, 2017, 10:22:17 AM
Beasho you are getting that thing down!  . . . Was that just a swell wave or did it break a little when you took off?

All of my waves were caught after they broke on the Kai foil.  With the Maliko foil it was possible to catch a wave that was just cresting but not truly breaking.  Once caught the waves can be ridden hopping from trough to trough on unbroken sections.  It's much easier on the Maliko, like having super-human capabilities.

Great idea Bill never thought of that. I have a couple of times gone over to back to wash off speed then back onto the face , next time I'm in that situation I'll try and stay and the back of the shoulder.

Great review.  Looks like you are just getting used to the 280.  Sam P'ae reports, off the record, that he is able to ride small waves and get a 2 for 1 by pumping back out to sea and turning on the second wave.  He is 230#. 

Small waves - Let's hear the report  8)

Thanks Beasho.  Sam has the Maliko 200 and likes using it in softer waves and he is able to pump back out with it for long distances.   I'm pretty sure he has not used the bigger Maliko 280 in the surf.

The votes are in, the clicks have been counted and verified, it’s time to announce the most viewed surfing clip of 2017….

Last year we reported, somewhat disappointedly, that the most viewed surf video was not one of the many excellent feats of cinematography that graced our screens over the proceeding twelve months, but instead a sordid little number called ‘4 Surf Girls Wearing Body Point’ which boasted the following description: “These 4 surfer gals look like they’re wearing wetsuits, but look again! They’re actually wearing pasties, strapless thongs, and body paint!”.

Without wanting to be too disrespectful to the film makers, the clip had all the production value (and film burn effects) of a GCSE Media piece, but it turns out people just can’t resist tits covered by a fine layer of paint.

Anyway, this year, dear friends, the times appear to have a-changed, as 2017’s wining clip contains precisely zero half naked women. Instead it features an all star cast, with this year’s hottest surfing craze as its centrepiece. Behold, Kai Lenny and The Hydrofoil . . 4.5 million views . . .

Piros:  Great introduction to the IWA. 

Something I have noticed with larger wings is the reduced frequency of pumps e.g. small wing quick pumps, larger wings slow and more powerful pumps.  Your pumps on the IWA were noticeably slower than comparable videos on the KAI for example.

Yeah good pick up Beasho , 100 % agree  much more drawn out pump plus we also seem to be off setting our feet more as the wing tips get wider.

Jeff Clark flying at Ocean Beach in San Francisco.

This video has pushed one of my friends over the edge: "Where is the buy button?"

I was asking Haley Fiske about foiling at Ocean Beach he said "It's great you paddle out 200 yards, take off at a 60 degree angle heading North and fly for 400 yards (do the math Cosine 60 degrees).  Then paddle straight back out take off 60 degrees heading South and fly for 400 yards . . . ."

kalama is right about life: to have pursuits that thrill and require challenge and perseverance to improve, where one actually improves....is to live.

i am a solid skiier for my age, always have been---skiing is certainly the sport i have always been best at all my life---i havent skiied my best in 25 years---i enjoy it, but my days of improving are long over--i strive to fail less quickly!

i get better all the time with sup-surfing--new thrills, new skills--i am a playa on skis---will never be a playa sup-surfing---but enjoy it more---having new challenges/pursuits, where one can extend effort and improve, is life-sustaining

foils looks compelling, but ive got so much more to learn sup-surfing

if i lived by the water, i would certainly investigate---the ability to get on the water, riding, where surf would otherwise be meh, would motivate

for now tho, i am getting exactly what kalama describes with sup-surfing

It’s prone, but it shows the potential in typical east coast wind slop.

I don’t think Mavericks foiling relates to those of us In Florida  🤪

I don’t think Mavericks foiling relates to those of us In Florida 🤪

DW: Keep the videos coming.  I was Foiling at Ocean Beach this past weekend and realized how different a beach break is vs. a true point break.  It's mellow then pitches.  You have to decide 'Do I go Left or Right?' and they have constantly varying personalities.  I think it would be harder to learn and I have been lucky to have been lucky to learn / live near a super mellow SOFT point break. 

I hear you on the Mavericks thing because it is how I feel when I look at the videos from Hawaii.  I am just trying to keep up with the Hawaiian Jones.  But they are super motivational to see how far I have yet to go. 

Speaking of Mavericks, here was one of my first successful rides taking off at 'Phlegm Balls.'   I hate the name so I refer to it as Flemers.  I was out foiling alone and could see these A frames pitching up.  From a distance they looked very approachable.  Up close more terrifying 8 to 10 foot drops that quickly softened.  This ride was a quick 200 yards but still left me 150 yards outside of Mushroom rock.  If I could have connected through the rocks it might have been a 700 yard ride. 

Another 300 yards further West and I would be taking off at the Bowl of Mavericks.  Not ready for that, by any means, but I inching (yarding) closer.

That was a cool video Robert he was flying yeeeew. 8)

Heres one more from me tow in foiling with the Garmin cameras. Really loving these cameras giving so many different angles. This opening shot is from the Garmin 360 cam mounted on front of the board the moment before the tow rider Chris Percy is pulled by the tow rope .I'm using both the Garmin VIRB 360 & Ultra 30 in this video. The Ultra 30 is the GoPro 5 equivalent but has a ton of geo stats like speed , G-force , tracking & map overlay ect. The 360 has it as well but haven't quite got my head around overlaying the data on 360 vision.

The foil we used on this one was a Lift kite foil 110 on a 800mm mast , can't see in the video but very choppy on shore that's when you want a smaller foil and longer mast.

If you're considering a foil I'd tell you don't wait long. . . . everyone, from prone surfers to SUP surfers are looking hard at foils. It's not just a few people. The prone guys have caught on, and they actually seem to have an advantage. the smaller the board they normally ride, the shorter their adoption curve. It's a sup thing today, but that won't last, and summer is coming.

You'd think I was doing their marketing. I'm not, but I'm getting ready to buy another combo just because. On the basis of the old combat motto: "Two is one, one is none".

With that said this is Short and Sweet and to the Point:

Here is a great one from Seabreeze (Colas).  Most interesting are his comments about the rear wing.  I was wondering about this because the rear wings all apply downforce with reversed camber (e.g. upside down wing).  At speed the GoFoils all get super Bunking-Bronco esc and try to throw you unless you put ALL your weight on the front foot.  What Colas is suggesting is that the rear wing is providing the majority of this moment due probably from the leverage of the rear wing being 2 feet back and pushing DOWN 4X as much for every 2X increase in speed.  This may help with the bigger waves.

Colas said: "Note that Beryl weights 66kg and is on the biggest Gong foil wing (the 80cm wide one). But he uses a smaller kite stab (45cm) to still be manoeuverable, and fast. On the Gong foil (at least) the stab is what can limit the speed: you can go very fast even with big wings by using a faster stab, and Gong modular system provides a lot of stab sizes. This is the new modular "Allvator" Gong foil, alu mast and carbon+glass wings at 399 euros."

I'm so not dialed into the specs for foils. But the KeNalu Iwa775 is recommended for surf and sup so I went w/it. Very cool video. I liked when he got into that tripod stance and dragged a foot. Also what's the paddle in the air thing from the sup riders? Guessing it's a sign of respect.

Really nice video of Alex...but I would have liked to have seen some of his takeoffs in those small conditions just to see the technique he's using to get into them.

As we've discussed here before, in small stuff like that, I've found that you more or less have to have near perfect timing, and pump the foil into the wave vs simply paddling a SUP board into it, reaching speed, and then flying the foil.

While I'm getting better at that, there's still a lot of attempted pumping into small waves that goes unrewarded...sometimes to the point that I'll get winded after a couple back to back unsuccessful attempts, and have to take a break (it's great getting old, and missing some (a lot?) of the energy of my youth :().

Alex might be doing the same thing, but if he's not, and has some other method of getting into that small stuff....I'd sure like to see it, and try it myself.

Video and edit by Ronnie Simpson, this is the extended version of his "Loyal to the Foil" video project. In the interview, Robert Stehlik talks about: - The history of foiling, going from the Air Chair hydrofoil, how it got adapted to two in foiling and more recently the development of bigger, thicker foils that can fly at lower speeds and allow foiling in the surf and in downwinders, pioneered by Alex Aguera of GoFoil. -How foiling works and the cool feeling of being able to fly over the surface of the ocean. -Breaching and how to minimize the wipeouts that are hard to avoid for beginners. -How foiling changed my daily routine and how small, sloppy surf can be a lot of fun. - Kai Lenny kick starting off the wave of hydrofoil surfing by posting an engaging video about downwind foiling and Dave Kalama motivating me to get better. - The importance of having the right equipment- right foil size and board size. - The difficulty of doing downwind foiling and how it's harder than learning in the surf. - learning behind a boat. - The business side of foiling and the SUP industry. - How the market for foiling seems to be bigger than expected. - The R&D process of developing foil boards and how the shapes have changed as a result of many hours on the water doing research and development. Yes, it's a tough job :)

Great video Robert.  This really encapsulates the Foil Stoke. 

I have been foiling in New England for the last several weeks in some REALLY bad conditions.  Example 3 ft @ 7 seconds.  I thought the foils wouldn't work in anything less than a 10 second interval.  No way!!!!  The foil just keeps on Giving!!!!!

This phenomena hasn't hit the East Coast of the US yet but it feels like Windsurfing in the late 70's.  Relegated ONLY to Hawaii.  People thought it wouldn't work anywhere else.  Hang On!!!!!!

As I said from the beginning FOILING IS EASY.  Flying down the line and doing a 180 degree cutback on a 2 foot wave and then doing another 180 off the 'lip' was not possible in anything less than an 8 foot face with power.  On the foil every wave feels like big wave surfing.

https://youtu.be/y7RRUWh5Ins

I was "Electric Bike SUP Foiling" with Chris and Jeff Clark back in March.  He had just unpacked his GoFoil IWA and the Blue Jimmy Lewis prone board shown in the video.  He has clearly gotten better because he was whining just a tad about adapting/relearning the IWA from the Kai foil. 

Chris may be a super-hero BUT realize that he went from his FIRST RIDE on the GoFoil IWA to this video, published in June, in less than 3 months. 

I am going to say it again FOILING IS EASY

Looks like Zane is on an Iwa. Interesting. I would have figured he'd be on a smaller foil in surf of any kind. I'm having a great summer in Hood River, but I'm jonesing to surf foil. So far the downwind foiling isn't happening, but that's more from lack of trying than anything else.

They are not related. The KeNalu 'IWA has an apostrophe in front of it. Also the designs are not very similar. I know this because both foils were just sitting side by side at my installers shop. We were curious also about any similarities. The KeNalu 'IWA775 is considered the go to for small wave foilers in the surf for those who chose to go w/a Kenalu foil.

Something of a nothing burger of a wave, and a day, but fun nonetheless.

Interesting, this was the first time I've ever seen myself surf, and I was surprised to see how the wave looked a little bigger on vid than it did standing on top of it. I remember starting down the line, and suddenly thinking, "where'd the wave go?", and the went searching for it.

Looks like there was something still a little further south, and probably should have just kept going, but l couldn't see it , and turned to where I thought I might find a little more juice....not so much.  :-\

I have tried to articulate why the foil so appealing.  Most recently I have been flying down the line, doing a 180 degree cutback and then cutting back again as I hit the whitewater.  To do this on a surfboard requires a BIG wave with down the line power.   There has to be enough of a shoulder to race away from the barrel and then cutback without stalling.  You then must maintain speed back into the face of the wave and  bottom turn again.

To do all of this typically requires an 8 to 10 foot clean, perfect face.  With the foil this is all possible with 2 and 3 foot imperfect waves.

Here is Blane Chambers putting it in his words.

That's kind of a tough one to answer succinctly, just because of how I tripped, stumbled, and bumbled my way out for the foiling starting blocks with all the wrong equipment initially, and really didn't get going until I finally got everything squared away in mid April.

So got a couple dozen frustrating sessions on a board/foil that wouldn't/couldn't fly me but was at least good practice on learning to paddle, and proper foot placement to turn for a wave on a foil. But since the time I got the right stuff that works, I'd say somewhere around 30-35 sessions give or take, to get to the point I'm at in that video.

Yes, turning is a whole new ball game, that I'm still figuring out. First couple of times my surf/sup mentality kicked in where I buried the tail/rail, and off to the moon foil, board, and myself went.

Now actually have to think about pointing the nose down as/when I start to turn - and why on a couple of those in the vid I'm touching down more than I want to, having not figured out exactly how much down I should be giving it yet on a particular sized wave - and then let the speed of the new found energy closer to the pocket pick me back up, accelerate me through the rest of the turn, and back back the line.

Still a work in progress, but why this foiling stuff is so fun...there's always something new to learn, and feel with it.

California, New England, old England it just doesn't matter the Foiling is GREAT!

I was out on a fantastic SUPER crowded day in New England last week aka 75+ people in the lineup. I met one of the few local foilers named Paul. It was the most crowded day I had ever foiled and they were NOT used to the foil.

The next day the crowd settled down significantly to just 30 people as the waves dropped. Paul finished his session so he caught a few of my waves on the inside, and outside, of the crowd with his drone.

Ironically this is the exact same Blue Planet Easy Foiler 6'6" that is shown in Robert's video above. I'm flying on a GoFoil Maliko 200 with straps.

My new foil Amigo Paul Murray shot this with his drone and made the video - Thank You PAUL!

This wave was like Middle Peak at Steamer Lane.  Gently feathering 7+ feet on the outside and then flying.  Best go left on the right and cut-back.  The webcam only caught the tail end of the rides after 100 to 150 yards of flight.

That guy again.

This is impressive given that it was a 6 minute Foil Board ride. 

But notice

1) The stamina.  He is pumping and NOT gassing himself completely out.  Good technique!

2) His footwork.  Given all the talk about precise footwork he is able to dance around the deck.  You will see him drop his back foot to the tail to turn hard and then bring his back foot way forward, tightening his stance, to pump back out to sea.  Better pay attention to Kai he is clearly pushing the envelope in this developing sport.

That was great! From his perfect foiling in that dreamy blue swell to the amazing povs he's achieving w/that rear facing nose mount. I was more than a little curious how he achieved that unique GoPro pov and then spied the jaws flex mount fitting on there. I always wanted to try that. Looks almost as cool as Clay's elevated GoPro rig.Weird how it cuts the nose of the board off though. Also that super extreme fisheye lens effect was cool. Wonder how you get that result?

Opposite end of the spectrum.

I was reluctant to post this but then I remembered:

"Foiling is EASY"

It might be the easiest water-sport you ever tried behind a boat.  Not Kidding.

This also highlights the importance of footstraps.  These people were starting from scratch. But they couldn't mess up the foot placement.  I think I wasted 6 months of learning and not getting better because I didn't install straps.

I was under the impression you were better off using your back hand to hold the tow rope to help square your shoulders up parallel w/the rails. All the riders getting towed in this video are using their front hands. But I've yet to get behind a boat to tow and can't wait until the opportunity presents itself.
...and footstraps...yea, they look REALLY helpful! Would foot hooks be a better option?

I agree 1000% with Denton that having pre-set foolproof foot placement is essential, and I too wasted at least 6 months not having foot hooks/straps.  I am still scared of foot straps on a SUP, and probably always will be.  I have heard of custom versions that "blow" open in wipe out or have break away bolts, and these sound somewhat appealing.  Currently I feel I have enough leverage with my foot hooks.  I have seen some gnarly wipeouts with straps and am terrified of going down fast and hard while strapped in.

My opinion is that loose straps are okay on a small tow board behind a boat.  My issue with straps on a SUP is the wide full volume board does not easily penetrate the water, and an awkward wipeout will tweak the ankles/knees.

Oh and when I use my backhand to tow it automatically squares up my body - puts me in a nice foil stance, seems almost impossible to stay hunched over...

I met Zane on a paddle out to Mavericks.  He couldn't have been nicer.  There was a story from the day before when Zane was on his SUP at Mavs.  A set wave comes and Zane appears to be too far inside.  Not knowing who he is someone says "Looks like SUP boy is going to take this one on the head."  Zane does an instantaneous 180, 3 quick strokes and makes an incredible, technically perfect late drop. 

The guy then says "Whoa SUP boy's got GAME!$#@"

I should be working but this was just TOO GOOD and has a little bit of foiling.

Makes me want to get back on a SUP again . . . . Ahhhh maybe not.

bummed i missed last saturday--that break is a few jetties down from my local, so it's much the same--and the waves looked very fun--and it would have had fun meeting pros and hanging with creek pabst and other zonologists---wasnt in my family cards

yesterday at my local, it was glassy 10mph offshore, head plus one or two on sets, but it was jacking up with unique power, even at low tide---we were worried it's be too soft, but it jacked for 3 hours---caught some serious long standout bombs---crowd was light and all my peeps--fun

florence there were people from god knows where who showed up all aggro with attitude--happens when the forecast is excellent

yesterday got cavalier about kicking a closing right in time and fell in front of both the board and wave----dumb---luckily i got away with only a bad leg bruise (and ego bruise) id been in three hours and was due to get out anyway, so i limped out---ill be fine by next waves on sunday

i was tired and pleased id been ripping nicely--guard goes down and whoopsie--kinda like cookie's kidney shot

Long, loaded with facial expressions and PURE JOY (no music) here is Jeff Clark crushing it on the foil.

He has been turning GREAT lately.  Said he was foiling with Kai Lenny earlier in the year and watching Kai realized "I was doing it all wrong!"

"Kai's upper body was moving all over the place but his lower body was rock solid."

You guys have such a cool setup there in HMB.  Big mushy waves and long rides.  I need to get some more water time up there.

YES! 

Mushy waves that range in size from 2 feet to Infinity and beyond.   

The good news is that there is no parking, seals, sealions, dolphins, whales, fish, sharks, rocks and fog that tend to keep the crowds in check.   8)

My neighbor got his leash pulled by a sealion the other day.  He freaked out and tried to swim away then it pulled off his booty.  No tissue damage just a love tap.

This is really going to piss off the proners.

Our local Half Moon Bay 'Yak crowd has been talking about putting foils on kayaks.  When the 'Yakers see how much fun we foilers are having it only makes sense. 

Here is the first I have seen of a 'Yaker on a foil in the waves.  I am sure there will be more to come.

That kayak video looked a bit out of control but like Bill said, with a sliding seat it has potential.  The Indo waves seemed to be much better suited for the shortboard without the foil.

Yesterday was 10 ft @ 12 seconds.  This is what mellow big'r looks like.

Out with Dave W. and Ruby.  Sneaking into waves from behind.

Flying the Iwa with Kai Tail and footstraps on a 7' 4" L41. 

I will add that despite the move towards all the modern stubby foil boards when the waves get big you want foam to catch the wave.  This L41 is 30" wide and while it was serving as my backup board it catches wave BETTER than my 6' 6" when things get big.

That's why everyone is using long leashes. But generally you land at coordinate x1y1z1 and the board with said hatchet departs at vector x(n)y(n)z(n) The likelihood of it making it's way back to you is pretty small, even with a tug from a leash. Not zero. But small.

This is Pushing the Limits - From COLAS living in exile in France:
----------------

The Gong shaper, Patrice Guenole', aka "L'Ours" (The Bear) was a bit worried by the direction taken by surf foiling, with micro boards that are hell to paddle if you are not young anymore. Gong is a brand aiming for volume markets, and he thought that these micro foiling boards were becoming a micro niche market: the amount of people able to realistically pump back to the lineup as an alternative to paddling will stay an ultra-small elite.

His solution: the foil cruiser: use an ultra-light 9' cruiser (an epoxy longboard with pulled in nose and tail). And since it does not pump well anyways with its length, just use the biggest foil wing possible (here the XXL 100cm wing). The result is something that glides in smooth arcs above the water, but can paddle back to the lineup effortlessly, and take off on non-breaking waves, as efficiently as a SUP foil.

As was said in another post, a foil carver rather than a foil pumper.

Beryl on a "short foil" and Patrice (100kg) on a "long foil", with moves making me think a lot of the "Silver surfer"..

That's Ka'a of course. Really good today. Jason (Daily Bread) pretty much always has his camera in his mouth. He's pretty slick with it--like an extension of his arm when he grabs it to shoot.

I'm finally getting the feel of my new board, which I haven't named yet. I've been calling it "Les", as in Les Fugly, but it's too pretty for that name. I'll figure something out.

Long, fast rides today, some of the waves were pretty punchy. Especially outside the reef. I got one that I thought was going to fall right on top of me, but it didn't, and I survived the drop and rode it a long way. Then when I was about to turn I stood up just a fraction, overfoiled and faceplanted. I have no idea why I do that, it never works and I always get punished.

Glad to hear you like the videos.
I would steer you towards the 6'11 Easy Foiler and a 1440 M Foil or S/M foil set.
If you don't mind a challenge you could possibly get away with the 6'6.

I know you only want aloha Clay, and I understand how the lineup felt. This is not directed at you and I question why its been posted here.

Imagining.. I was .. In the line...I am sitting there in the water toughing it out. Took me forever to get into position. My neck hurts because I am prone surfing. shoulders numb... I am with all my buddies that have been surfing there for ever...clearly I have grey hair. And some dude with his buddies boat pulls a foiler in on the shoulder to then have him bob and weave in and out of the line. Then he has the gall to celebrate. The boat is causing wakes, making noise etc.. no aloha there. That break is not Nelscott. Or jaws. Why tow?

I call "boo" and I would say that he is doing a disservice to the foiling crowd. Bummer that this video is here to be honest. It would be one thing if he stayed on the shoulder, but he is bobbing and weaving through the line. If you look closely, more dudes are pissed.

He could have manned/womaned up and dropped in on the powder here and probably rode forever.

Fault me for being extra sensitive as I am just getting into foiling and this and the other video going around are not good to have anywhere on the interwebs.

I must be missing something. I didn't see that, and I watched it a dozen times, full screen. He was a long way out of the pocket unless it was empty. Anyone surfing fort point has to be pretty good, that's some seriously snotty water, those guys aren't likely to be intimidated by a foiler. I'm not the greatest at judging vibe, but it looked OK to me.

I guess in the case it is different and I haven't been there so hard to give a jugment but still I think it is something that could be done somewhere else no ?

But once again, too bad because people will blame foilers, they will talk etc... and at the end foilers will loose even if there is nothing really bad in the video actually.

I totally hear what you are saying and agree that boats and skis tearing through the lineup would be a bummer.

Not meaning this as an attack or rebuttal only to give context for what it's often like to surf fort point.

At fort point there is a really loud fog horn, hundreds of thousands of cars zipping by overhead, huge container ships, speed boats, a giant bridge, a fort, hundreds of tourists on 3 wheeled motorcycles, helicopters, and bitter "locals".  Possibly the most unnatural surf spot in the world.

I've met this foiler and he has way more aloha than most of the regulars who surf here. 

I know people who have foiled here and this is the first video I've seen on a solid day.

You are right.  Fort Point is one of the nastiest, most aggressive places to surf outside of getting beaten up in Hawaii (if this still happens).  A couple years ago a guy got arrested for fighting in the line up.  My friend had his tires slashed in the parking lot, 2 slashed . . . . No me-too love from the San Francisco crowd. 

Funny thing is that NONE OF THEM SURF MAVERICKS.  Because that stuff DOES NOT HAPPEN at Mavericks.  Little men, short boards with big attitudes.

Post by: PonoBill on April 14, 2019, 11:34:47 AM
True that it's a unique collection of whackdoodles. I used to windsurf in the bay when I had occasion to be there more than a few days, and it was every man (pretty much exclusively) for himself and lots of bad vibe. Strange considering how small the number was and how tough the conditions were. No way it was ever going to be crowded. Oregon plates weren't very popular at Chrissy Field either. The gorge was infinitely more crowded and infinitely more inviting. Too many rats in one cage I guess.

I decided to swim around the buoys near that museum by the bridge for a little exercise one day, because I saw other people doing it. I had no clue that it was an organized activity, looked like a very small number of people getting into really cold choppy water and swimming. I was doing my usual slow crawl and a guy came up next to me and pushed my head under. I thought it was a joke, but he was serious. Wanted me to get out of the water. When I finally figured out that he was serious I told him if he touched me again he'd have to learn to swim with broken arms. When I came in he was standing on the beach with a cop and some guy in a suit. The only thing that saved me from some hassle is that the swimmer admitted that he pushed my head under water before he said anything to me. The guy in the suit said "we can't have people just randomly getting in the water" and all three nodded.

Just about the craziest thing I've ever encountered.

Real sucky go pro footage but it’s the longest ride I have ever had on a Foil.  Super fun, super stoked!  Can’t wait to get back to it while the local river floods. 60,000 cfs is a lot of water.  If I guessed the correct water speed I calculated that my foil traveled through 2 miles of water while my board and body only traveled , maybe 100 yds side to side, frontwards and backwards.

Nice video Hilly. It's amazing though, what perspective does. I'm sure there are a lot of people that would look at your video and think "dinky little waves, and he's just going back and forth on them, lame." I look at it and my pulse pounds and my jones for foiling kicks to ten.

Yes, agree with all of that - Nice vid Hilly, enjoyed it!! - and especially how slow things seem to be happening there...when you know that when you're the one actually standing on the board, things seem to be amplified 10-fold all the way around. :o ;D

Nice one Clay!  Out at the pit eh?  I got a 2700ft ride out there last year following the channel into the bay.

Yeah with these winds the best option.  Buddy brought a new fishing boat with a fancy depthfinder, spooked me out seeing how deep that channel is - up to 40 feet a stones through from the break, no wonder the sharks are so big there!  The current was flooding hard pushing us in nonstop, I think it'd be scary to be out there on a big ebb.  For sure 2700, we flew up to 2000 feet and it was small...

I just got a 3M Duotone wing and am waiting for enough wind to give it a try.
Title: Re: Foil Videos
Post by: PonoBill on July 11, 2019, 06:38:13 PM
You were rocking that. I'm at about session 8 or 9. I had a 3M only at first, and I'd need a hurricane to get my fat ass up with that. Now I have a 4 too, and it's much better, though I really need a five. I was out in reasonable wind today and got a number of micro foil lifts but I can't just power up, I have to pump, and that gets everything a little screwy. More wind or 5M wing and I think I'll be good.

I've been using a GoFoil 280, and I think the drag is kind of limiting. I tried my Axis 1020 today and got up smoothly instead of popping up in the gusts. That will probably work well, but I need to patch the wing a bit. I hit a rock at low speed on the way in at Swell City and it hit right in the middle of my repair job. No big deal, but this wing is going to start looking like it has the measles.
Title: Re: Foil Videos
Post by: Piros on July 11, 2019, 07:51:27 PM
Thanks all and yes Bill it really needs pump assist to get up then another half a dozen to get it lit up if you don't have a decent breeze and really hard to do if you start switch. My advice to all in my limited time is just wait for the wind to be nuking , it's so much easier with heaps of wind. The 5m Bill does help get up but it's more of a handful and again in failing winds the wing tends to roll and you catch the bottom corner (because it's longer) and you run over it, do this a few times and it turns into a swearing fest.  ;D Again just wait for the wind , it's agony drifting around without it.
Title: Re: Foil Videos
Post by: Admin on July 12, 2019, 03:20:38 AM
Looking great Piros! 

I am on the other side of the spectrum as Bill.  I have a 5 but no 4.  It is super fun but like you say, that extra 25% is very noticeable in terms of manageability.  This is most noticeable in large swell where there is a lot to catch on.  I have been using the 5 in everything from 12 to 30+.  When it gets to the higher side of that range it really wants to be overhead to spill wind.  That is a very extended position and it isn't as controlled to try to get foiling from there (at least for me as a new rider).  I think being nicely powered but in the range is the key.  I have been begging Ivan at SPG for a 4 meter.  My credit card is ready.  Flatter water and low current helps a lot as well.  I am sure that waiting for the right conditions is smart, but there is none of that going on here.  We are still all making solid gains and having better rides each day.  Such a fun process. 

Is that the same (water) foil that you are using for surf?

But yeah, if you can see that, my feet, and the mast placement...it kind of tells the story as to why I find it a little easier to be able to pump it back up again like that, compared to that on my straight mast. But like anything, there's give and takes to it also.

On a pole off the end of the boom. Very risky camera mount when you loose control of the wing and it is rag dolling just smashing the camera on the water. A lot of work in post edit controlling 3 horizons to give that flat vision look , editing the jibe was nightmare but came out pretty seamless.

Rob you're ripping on the wingding.  That prone session looks like a great spot for small boards, looks like you're doing laps walking up to the jump off to minimize paddling.

We had a fun session at Ocean Beach:

Thanks Red , both those boards are 35 litres .

You guys are shredding it up on those little boards!  Are you finding that 35 liters duck dives similar to a normal shortboard in terms of being able to pressure it under?

Yes the 35 litres is really easy to sink , they duck dive amazingly well and because of the foil you never get sucked back over , it locks like and anchor.

We had some really nice conditions yesterday 18 - 22 kts. I've been working on going straight downwind , which is pretty challenging but starting to get it together . I'm on the Dutone 4m , 6-7 Fanatic and Axis 900.
