They are quite fun.  I have an 9'6 Wavestorm that I surf when the water is really crowded.  Gives me peace of mind knowing that I won't hurt someone badly if I hit them, so I relax and enjoy the surf more when its crowded.

SUP conversations and threads are dying and Foiling threads and conversations are taking its place.  I doubt that there are more than 5 places on the planet that will rent you a foil set up to learn on.  I know of zero.  That should keep the foil mystery mysterious.

I'd like to try foiling....I think it could be great for my local...but I'll SUP as long as I can stand and hold a paddle.
