Foil SUP / F-one Rocket Wing ASC 5'10" Foilboard - SUP?
« on: August 11, 2021, 07:42:54 AM »
Size and volume look right, has anyone SUP foiled it?

Like the title says, looking to downsize from the 6'5". East coast for shipping purposes.

Foil SUP / Naish S26 95L - SUP
« on: June 10, 2021, 10:25:22 AM »
Has anyone SUP foiled the S26 or S25, or frankly any SUP in that 95L range. I'm 175 lb/78kg, and I have a 6'5" 115L Flying-V right now, I love it but I think I could go smaller and gain some performance on the foil.

Any thoughts? Riding mostly mushy, knee to chest-ish east coast inlet waves.

I'm just throwing this out there because it's proabably not worth shipping, so I'm in Charleston, SC. I basically want the smaller 5'11" Flying-V, so a trade or make an offer on selling. It has a few knicks and dings, but nothing too critical, great board, just want it with less volume/length.

Foil SUP / Next wing after Maliko 200 - Progression
« on: May 22, 2021, 02:06:20 AM »
So.......I'm a year in on the Maliko 200, confident riding in mostly knee to waist high, occasional waist/chest day (East Coast US waves). I'm not pumping back out the back great yet, but making some progress, but no issues linking waves and getting longer rides (45 seconds, etc.)

I'm debating going prone or staying with the SUP and maybe progressing to a high aspect wing. I'd like to try something with a bit more speed,but without losing the smaller wave lift of the Maliko 200. I also have a Gen 1 GoFoil mast that might be showing it's age a bit with some flexing.

So, any suggestions on going to the GL210, or what? If it's everyone's experience that gradual switch to prone just because of the lower volume is the biggest progression, I may go that route, but damn I still love hoping on the SUP. There's a few reasons the SUP is a better choice on some of our breaks (longer paddle often against some current to inlet breaks, gutless waves, and the occasional snipping at your heels).

Any thoughts?

Foil SUP / Switch to Prone (Pros/Cons)
« on: February 14, 2021, 04:37:02 AM »
I'm sure this has probably been asked before, but I didn't see any direct threads. I'm pretty comfortable SUP foiling, started this summer and it's pretty much taken over my surfing. I'm mostly on a mushy inlet break, but occasionally work in a beach break. Anyways, I'm debating adding a prone setup. I haven't popped up on a surfboard since I was 16 or so (and wasn't that good then), but with the added volume and the fact that I'm actually in better shape now than I probably was then, figured I could try.

For people that made the switch, pros/cons? I'm figuring catching waves the advantage is on SUP, I also feel like I can hold on the shoulder and navigate steeper waves on a SUP. The advantage on the prone being less volume, so easier to initiate carves, and nothing in your hands which in my mind would help pumping out the back.

Anyone who's made the switch have any opinions? Keep in mind, I've been only SUP surfing for the last 8 years or so, Costa Rica, Fiji, whatever.

Located in Charleston, SC, great board, no issues, it just pretty much got replaced with foiling. Great deal on this board, 7'6" x 29.5", 100L.

Great board, I took the deck pad off just because I like wax better. Love this board, but....need room for the SUP Foil, 7'6" x 29-1/2", 100L. Pretty stable for my 175 lbs, good for mushy, east coast surf.

Let me know if you have any questions, I'm in Charleston, SC, no shipping.

Foil SUP / JL Flying-V 6'5" and GL Maliko 200
« on: May 15, 2020, 04:02:43 AM »
Finally got out on my first session with the Flying-V and a GoFoil Maliko 200 setup. Background far as foil, no boat, learned with a kite pretty easily. Obviously kite foiling is a lot easier because of the control of power, etc, but at least I know the weight transfer and general feeling of foiling. I've been kitefoiling for about 8 months (probably 25 sessions or so). I'm 6', 175 lbs for reference.

Jimmy Lewis Flying-V Overview:
-First off, great looking board, I expect it from JL, but man, it's a cool looking board. Foot placement markings are really helpful.
-I'm glad I went with 6'5", it's a bit of a struggle to get going to begin with, but getting my feet in the right spots over the foil is really easy because of the length.
-Plenty of volume/stability.

So, overall I got up on two waves in roughly a hour and a half, one ride was pretty long - 400' according to my watch, and it was basically gliding on whitewater, really worked on keeping it down, so I was probably 9" or so off the water, but smooth glide. The GL 200 as I got a bit used to it on take offs seems to be pretty forgiving on not being exactly centered. Foiling on this small of a SUP is pretty exhausting as well, as with anything you are learning, it's a lot of getting your muscles/body used to it. Long story short, I don't think it will take a ton of time to get to flying on a normal basis, but perfecting it will take some time. I'll keep reporting back, I definitely see some SUP's getting sold because of foiling.

Looking for a foil setup, preferably with shaft/complete as I already have one setup for kiting that I would rather keep just for kiting.

Foil SUP / First Foil Setup Thoughts
« on: January 02, 2020, 02:02:09 PM »
Ok, so a bit of background, I'm 38, 170 lbs and I've been SUP surfing for about 5 years. My primary boards are the 7'6" x 29" JL SuperFrank (100L) and the 8'2 SuperTech (102L). I have no issues at all paddling either, could probably go down a bit more. I'm on the east coast in crappy, mushy waves.

So, my plan was to basically learn to foil with kiteboarding, I've kited for over 10 years and figured it would be way easier to learn with a kite and plenty of power than on a SUP. This proved to be correct, it was pretty easy, pretty much riding with no issues after a few equipment malfunctions, and after probably a dozen sessions I'm confident with riding toeside, etc.

Back to SUP - I want to get into SUP foiling as there are others (mostly prone though) getting into it here and showing that it's completely doable in our waves. I have a deal on a GoFoil Maliko(200) and the iwa(170) with a tuttle mount and 24" mast. I'm looking at the 5'11" JL Flying-V, any thoughts? I want to go as short as possible as I think a lot of the issues with guys around here on SUP's is the board is too long and it's too awkard to balance on.

Open to suggestions, again I don't need a perfect foil, just want to get going.

I love this paddle, the issue is I'm a bit scared to cut it based on how the Werners are fitted and the fact that it's epoxyed together. I got it a inch overhead because of the smaller blade, over time, I've figured out it still needs to be a 1" under my forehead. So, basically for 2 inches I need to make an adjustment one way or the other.

If anyone is interested, I can send pics, etc.

For anyone who flies Delta a lot - no fee for surfboards/SUP's anymore. They still have the 113 linear inch requirement, but I've never had that enforced on me, hopefully that doesn't change.
