Foil SUP / switchfoot foil...8 hrs
« on: August 10, 2020, 11:21:00 PM »
after carefull research i have determined it takes 8 hours minimum thats 4...2 hour sessions to go from an absolute first time Switchfoot foiler couldn't even get airborne....to sort of competent able to go up wind  down wind...point high point low....fly wherever i want on foil...


was a very frustrating 8 hours and i almost quit many many times....but flying all twisted up REALLY sucked so i had to learn it...

if anyone else out there needs to learn to switch foot foil so they can wing foil  without bieng all twisted up...the best thing to do is learn it on a kite ...then go to the wing...don't give up it only takes 8 hours of practice...

yaaaaaaay! :)

Foil SUP / hey beasho and pono....and anyone else who knows?
« on: October 06, 2018, 12:33:23 AM »
ive been riding a SimSUP lookin L41 type 8'6" with the maliko 200 for 6months now and i think im ready to move on to something higher performancey....i.e.....i can do 3 for 1's but the  tail slaps when pumping back out  and rails drag in the cutbacks...you guys both started on L41's and are big guys like me 230#...

going to Maui next week and i saw a 7'6" starboard hypernut on craigslist 106L i think....

do you think this a good idea?....or should i just go get an easyfoiler or ask dave kalama?...

cant decide...thanks :D

Gear Talk / 120 sq. in. paddle?....anybody still use them...negatives?
« on: August 22, 2018, 11:05:04 AM »
thinking about getting a 120 sq in paddle for foil SUP...

ive always liked bigger blades...i want to feel like the paddle is stuck in the water so i can pull the board past it as opposed to digging a hole with the little guys...


.never tried one before....does anyone still make these things?...and for those who have had one what were your negatives?...tha ks

the wind has been GREAT in so cal the past few days and ive been kite surfing the heck out of the place....then i got back on the foil...oh hell no!....lost ALL my foil skills what few i had...after about an hour of beatings i finally was able to keep it sort of under control again but not really


is it just me or do you guys have to  relearn everything all.over again on the foil after you go regular surf for 3 days?

 :(

Foil SUP / epiphany from a 2 session guy...just sit down
« on: April 23, 2018, 02:10:26 AM »
1st session looked exactly like all the 1st timer "eat it" videos all over the internet...almost chopped my foot off half a dozen times...almost fell on and got stabbed by the wing a half dozen more...board rolling over sideways and falling on the wing or wheeling out of the water began to get scary...

2nd session i thought "what if i just ride sitting down"...feet out in front kayak style...caught a wave sitting down...angle across the face...transferred paddle to inside hand...outside hand grab the rail...little but hop to engage the foil and ....yeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaa...flying down the line foiling and IN CONTROL!!!...for once...

sitting down is soooooo much easier and way safer when you have to bail...doesnt look very cool at all but its great for getting the feel of what the foil  is going to do...

 ;D

i accidentally deleted all the movies/music/apps/etc from my iphone when i did that

it says it created a backup of the iphone before it wiped everything out

SUP General / help from OC guys?...newport harbor/corona del mar cove...
« on: August 28, 2011, 01:02:08 PM »
i want to take some beginners SUPn next mid-week after all these big waves pass...

we were planning on going to malibu but they are from the 909 and the closest/nicest place to everybody is Corona Del Mar/newport harbor...the park across the channel from the Wedge...

can someone tell me if:
- do we need PFD's?
- can we park at the state park?...and how much does it cost?
- can we launch at that little cove in the channel?
- can we paddle into the bay and look at all the houses/boats?
- can we paddle out the channel to the open ocean?

thanks
