Foil SUP / When Foiling Goes Wrong
« on: February 15, 2020, 09:57:00 AM »
So I thought this might be a fun little topic. A place for stories, and/or pics of when foiling might have taken a little bite out of ya.

I'll lead off with a pic of the results of not paying attention while entering the water with your foil machine....

...courtesy of the rear wing catching your leg when a wave brings the inverted floating board and foil crashing down onto you as you try to stop them from hurtling into the sand.

Let me count the number of dumb moves getting into this so preventable situation...(uh three?)  ::) :(

I want to be this Guy When I grow up.  Matahi Drollet
I want to be like a lot of those guys...but I'm not holding my breath that "60 is the new 20" by any stretch of the imagination. Lol... ;D

More evidence that the GL 140 works.
You make it sound as though anyone would have any doubts about that. Heck, the Kai works great for me...in certain conditions, but it's not (or wasn't) my regular "go to" wing 90% of the time. That's why I bought the 140 figuring it will replace the Kai, and have an even wider range of waves to use it in.

IOWs, I used to have a quiver of surfboards, then a quiver of SUS boards, and now I have a quiver of foil wings (and load only one foil board)...which are so much easier to store and carry around in the van to the beach, than a bunch of boards for the conditions upon arrival.  :)

Drool!  Well the question is whether the wife could tell the two apart if they weren't side by side... ;)  Does Go Foil use a US distributor?  I always figured they had a two-tier system...
I don't know the specifics, but my first Go Foil set I got directly through talking to Karla, and shipped directly to me from the factory in China. When the GLs came out however long ago, a buddy called Karla again to order a pair of them a couple weeks before leaving for HI, and she directed him to call some guy in CO.

After a couple calls with no response from him, and since he was concerned the shipping window was slipping away, he decided to just go to HI w/o them, and see if he could find some there...which he did at HI-Tech I believe he said was the name of the shop.

When I went looking for the 180, a buddy I foil with owns Kikau Kai Waterman in Hermosa Beach who's a GF dealer, but he has to order through whomever in CO also, and where the communication breakdown happened, and how I ended up with the 140...instead of my other buddy getting his 18W/pedestal. Not complaining though...a bummer for my bud (who's getting his 18W shipped directly to his house), but a "SCORE!" for me. :P

Btw, the wife could tell them apart (note: don't leave new wings sitting next to each other), but I told her the newer one was her valentines day gift to me, and how much I loved her for it....she's a softy romantic, and was thrilled I was so happy with it (thank goodness for holidays and lucky timing ;D).

Got it now...certainly an interesting concept. Like his inventor's spirit when it comes to trying to improve on the foiling game...some cool ideas.

Throwing it out there to see if there's any interest in a couple sets of Go Foil wings (no mast).

1. Iwa, Maliko 200, and the Maliko rear wing.

2. Kai front and rear wing.

All are in good condition, and I'd be real negotiable on the price. With the GL180 and 140, I don't see myself riding any of these wings again, and would like for them to not just collect dust on a shelf in my garage.

They're still excellent wings for someone starting out (IMO)...with the exception of the Kai, which is quite fun if you have big enough surf, or for some smaller prone person.

Just testing the waters, shoot me some ideas if interested...they're in SoCal as far as a question wrt shipping cost goes (which for the price I'm willing to let them go for, I'm not paying).  :)

I must be missing something...what prevents them from sliding forward and/or backwards in the track during use?  ???

Geez, youze guys are ruining my kids' inheritance... ;D

So the candyman showed up at the beach today to delivery a friend's new GL180 and 18W; but wouldn't you know it, there was a screw up in the order, and somehow the 18W got confused for a GL140 - and apparently it was the last 140 the distributor had for another 4-5 months - so it's now residing in my van waiting for the next decent day for her maid voyage.  :o


So that's two new wings in a week...hope the wife doesn't read this forum. :D

Strapless airs are a bonus.
Yeah, that caught my eye also. Guess you just can't rotate them w/o the straps...

Yep, and I'm glad I waited a bit before making the jump to the GL, because when they first introduced them, I was positive that I'd need the 210 to get me going...but just got the 180 two days ago, and it's an absolute BLAST!!!

Not sure if I'll ever need the 140 given the mostly smaller mushballs I surf in at SanO (rarely even head high the majority of the time), but who knows...I never thought the 180 would have got me flying as easily as it does. So fun!!  ;D ;D

Isn't the 180 awesome!?!?
Oh fo sho! After my second time out with it, I was texting some buds who wanted a ride report that..."The GL180 is sick...I can now sell all of my other wings!!:D

Pretty Compelling arguments being made for the GoFoil GL 140. 

I had thought it might be too small.  Dave Kalama loves it (listen to Progression Project podcast).  James Casey loves it (https://soundcloud.com/progressionproject/foiling-series-james-casey-3)

Then there is this guy - Eddie Ogata

SoCal / Re: LA Area Info
« on: February 08, 2020, 09:33:37 AM »
Check out nikau kai over in manhattan beach while you are here. They have some older infinities in stock that may work for you.
Yes, call Jason at Nikau Kai - 310.545.7007 - and he'll definitely get you pointed in the right direction all "South Bay" related.

I'm sure if you talk to him nicely, you can easily convince him to head back down to "SanO" for an early morning surf adventure...as he's almost always looking for any excuse to head our way with foil and foil board in hand. 

Even if you don't foil, he's fun to watch do it from whatever you're on in the water for a bit if nothing else.

Camera is cool and all if you're into that kinda stuff, but what really impressed me....is Clay, you're tearing it up out there!!!!

It doesn't seem like that long ago that you were posting videos here of yourself just learning the sport, and taking us all along on the spills, chills, and thrills of the long learning curve on your way to proficiency from the safety and comfort of our own couches behind computer screens.

Well my friend, you are now most certainly proficient, and I loved watching you carve the turns and fly the straights like the best of them. Well done sir, well done.

100% agree! Nothing but timely, and outstanding customer service from Lane, and excellent quality and performance from all of the equipment I've purchased from KeNalu over all these years. Won't paddle anything else.

Technique / Re: Quad Issues on new board
« on: January 25, 2020, 03:38:20 PM »
Each day with quad Iím more won over.  Speed and looseness are big benefits.  Thruster will always hold a place in my heart but I think I can maneuver and outrun fast sections better with quads.  Thanks for all the video help really helps understand the fin differences
Yes, and in all seriousness this time :)...when I was still surfing/SUSing, I did eventually gravitate to quads with a tiny nubster since I too was on a shorter, but wide tailed mini-Simmons shaped board as my go to...in the typically mushy conditions of SanO, where trying to squeeze any bit of speed possible was the goal the majority of the time.

Eventually went back to a Pearson/Laird long board where speed was not as much of the essence, and the 2+1 setup I liked better for that board to help keep me going somewhat straighter when trying to get out on the nose (something that I was never really all that good unfortunately :-\)
