Thanks.  Not many takers on the bigger swell, and the one smaller spot was way to crowded.
Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.

Been a little while since I've posted here but thought you might like this video. One wave from a recent trip to Fiji at one of the funnest setups I've surfed!

Really impressive stuff Clay. Great view of someone skilled with a foil in Overhead surf.  We'll see you soon.

Fantastic Clay. Always a pleasure to watch this guy.

Who doesn't see though from this footage the limitations of the super long mast? It's holding him back from really nailing the timing, so much lag time. He does do incredibly well with it but...

(So easy to armchair critique...  ::)

Lots of nice SUP, surf and wingfoil footage in these 42 minutes.

Right on.

Lag time in pumping or wave riding?

That was his first time riding a new foil.  He moved his foot strap next session and is ripping.  He's been working on those layback tight carves and even made a new narrower board for tighter turns.

I'm really nitpicking there Clay ;)  I see it in the roll from turn to turn here and there. Pumping looks great.

With tip breaches no longer having much of a penalty there's less reason to be so far from the foil. With my 93cm mast I felt the need to use front straps to overcome the lag while with the 83 not at all. Boards around 24" wide shouldn't cause much issue in steep banks at shorter mast lengths.

Also curious to hear thoughts on Johnny's new board design, he said it feels great.

I watch the video a few times to look at the board design.  Looks like the front end of regular wing board and kalama V flat tail.  Seems to make sense, you get the planeing at the first front half of the board.  When you get enough speed, the front half should be out of the water and the V flat bottom help with board release from the water.

Thanks for posting videos of Heinken, Clay.

Always good for inspiration and making my wallet lighter.

By chance, do you know what volume boards he rides in relation to his body weight.

Do you know the length of the board?
