Foil SUP / Re: Is there a good place to foil on the north shore of Oahu?
« on: December 22, 2020, 10:26:28 PM »
yup puaena point is the place BUT early morning only be outta there by 900ish thats when the surf schools start up and it gets choked with beginners and dangerous

if the waves are big thats pretty much your only choice till you you get to turtle bay works but i dont know if its open...and the east side has lots of spots too...kahana...kualoa ranch...theyre all pretty far from aulani though

if the waves are small...i.mean really small...go anywhere its foilable but NOT the main break at chuns...and NOT the main break at lanis...and absolutelynot haleiwa....they been having problems

if its really small and not windy usually in the mornings early .
.walls is the spot...google search kamani lane..its the next beach park kaena point side  from haleiwa...theres only 2.parki g spots  so you probably have to park along tthe road...its basically the inside part of avalanche..about a half mile offshore....suuuuuuper long rides can ride  aaaalllll the way to the beach if your legs can handle it....theres way too shallow reef right out front so walk 50 yrd left along the sand and thats where the deep channel starts...thats KaiBorgs home break so say hi...he house right across the street

absolutely googlt maps white plains beach...stay away from the main break right in front of the beach park..thats a no no...go way out to the far right is usually empty and all the other foilers go...or way out to the far left....stay out of the middle is for surfers only

also chek out bunkers...down the road from white.plains...end of coral sea road in front of the coast guard station....go in the morning afternoongets windy...even when the whole south side is flat bunkers usually still has something ...its a sandbar waaaay out at sea maybe a quarter mile offshore...google search..
nimitz covebeach....paddle out next to the jetty and go out to the right.
.dont jump off the jetty the rocks are nasty sharp..it looks like nothing from shore but if it evwn has a bit of whitewater its super good fun...can ride um all the way back to the beach but dont becauseclose in it gets super shallow super fast

dont even think about the west side..not worth it

single foiled flat.on one side...the outside or underside of the tips is flat and the ...inside or topside is foiled ....

but its such a small area that is foiled on the topside...ive broken mostnof my tips off or at least nearly off and cracked or shredded them on the rocks and reef and fixednthem with JBweld...ive found that the foil doesn't make that much difference...just havimg the angles tips and cutout DOES matter though...

on my NL220 my friend...LAFC! ;D...smashed the tip off on the rocks at malibu...he fixes it but it eventually broken off again...it tried it without the tip but it wouldnt work right...i could really feel the difference and it wanted to yaw and turn toward the no tip side ...like the good side was very lifty and the no tip side was dragging...so i reinforced the outside with a pieceo of aluminum from home depot and JB welded.it back on...solid now...but i know idid not get the foil correct...it flies great again...no.problems...cant even tell the difference...yay!

Hi steamroller,
The best think about these vids is getting a good look at the legend himself!
I have seen all the " steamroller" surfing inflatables videos through the years, but he remained as elusive as Bigfoot.

Your vid describing the NL foil and winglets, plus the mouth cam view, is a good look at your spirit and insanely high positive energy.... love that stoke!
Kudos to you for what you do!

Please say hi to Alex for me... really nice man, passionate about his craft!
He couldn't have a better person explaining his gear.... or ripping on it!  :)


Aloha! ;D ;D ;D

and thanks for NOT putting everything out there...XFOIL is definitely the way to go...the equations cannot be worked with analytically...the math is way to complex...everything has to be done numerically in order to make any sense if it all :D
