California, New England, old England it just doesn't matter the Foiling is GREAT!

I was out on a fantastic SUPER crowded day in New England last week aka 75+ people in the lineup. I met one of the few local foilers named Paul. It was the most crowded day I had ever foiled and they were NOT used to the foil.

The next day the crowd settled down significantly to just 30 people as the waves dropped. Paul finished his session so he caught a few of my waves on the inside, and outside, of the crowd with his drone.

Ironically this is the exact same Blue Planet Easy Foiler 6'6" that is shown in Robert's video above. I'm flying on a GoFoil Maliko 200 with straps.

My new foil Amigo Paul Murray shot this with his drone and made the video - Thank You PAUL!

Naish videos are not nearly as exciting without Kai, but its nice to still see Robby ripping it up.

Some of you may have seen this on the kook instagram, but kind of scary at least for me just starting out.

More New England Foiling Action

This wave was like Middle Peak at Steamer Lane.  Gently feathering 7+ feet on the outside and then flying.  Best go left on the right and cut-back.  The webcam only caught the tail end of the rides after 100 to 150 yards of flight.

what i saw of you yesterday, beash, didnt look too far behind these guyz

takeaways: you get all waves you go after, but some require some serious bearing down--your strength and balance make it look easy
                  you ride em all the way, so your paddleouts are looooong---but then i realized that the smaller stuff surfers pull out of are still fun on foil
Portal Barra 8'4"
Sunova Creek 8'7"
Starboard Pro Blue Carbon  8'10"
KeNalu Mana 82, xTuf, ergoT

That China Uemura gang sure make it look easy! Pretty much the opposite of what my foiling looks like! They are just clearing that inside reef...and Waikiki crowd!
Drop the Mic!
I didn't get that mic comment...RIGHT over my head.  ???

That guy again.

This is impressive given that it was a 6 minute Foil Board ride. 

But notice

1) The stamina.  He is pumping and NOT gassing himself completely out.  Good technique!

2) His footwork.  Given all the talk about precise footwork he is able to dance around the deck.  You will see him drop his back foot to the tail to turn hard and then bring his back foot way forward, tightening his stance, to pump back out to sea.  Better pay attention to Kai he is clearly pushing the envelope in this developing sport.
