Very cool, Clay. Maybe try it with a land paddle--just a stick with a crutch tip works fine. I've got a big Kahuna board that I'm going to try something similar with. I have to suit up like a medieval knight to ride the thing. My geezer balance and sketchy knee don't make for elegant recoveries. But I need to push it to ever get on foils.

Thanks Bill.  Good idea.  I agree completely - pads and protective gear are the wise way to learn something like foiling.

Here is my second attempt at building a foil balance trainer:
Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.
