Gopro mounted under board filiming the Gofoil
« on: August 13, 2017, 12:24:31 AM »
Thought I would share this after reading all the foil DYI's on this thread . Great aspect of how a foil performs. I stuck a Gopro Session 5 under the front of my board .  I'm riding a 7-6 x 28 -115 litre Sup on the Kai Go Foil. 200 pound old bloke (53). Interesting vision with the humming and cavitation at full mast length. Mast length is 23" from tail but still getting tail tap when pumping at that , we have now brought it in shorter to 21" from tail.

That's very cool vision. Good to see how stable it is.

Very cool perspective. As I was watching I thought, that looks like a Bat ray. I wonder it a juvenile GW would think the same?  ???
It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I rarely use.

Tigers as well - like the one that chewed on Connor's foil.  That's why they aren't black anymore from what I hear.
