WSL video of Kai Lenny foiling at San Onofre
« on: September 19, 2017, 06:16:47 PM »
I am sure many of you saw it, but World Surf League put out this video on their Facebook page last night of Kai Lenny foiling at San Onofre. 

Kai is now riding a 3'8" foil board... crazy!

Great Video. 

I tried to strip it out into YouTube but couldn't get the converter to work on this file.  Would be great if someone can post it to YouTube.  This is a ver illustrative new video.

LOL, I agree.  It's just like the buttboarders ruined it for the surfers a Dogpatch in the 90's, then the SUPers ruined it for the butboarders in the 2000's.  Now, the foilers have the potential to crowd out the SUPpers.

Here's to hoping that the hop gets retired soon.  Interesting to see once but grim after that.

Not appealing. Kinda like when we keep with the paddling motion after taking off on a wave.

  I like when he says his 3'8" is his go-to board.

Remember the superfluous overhead paddle twirl from the early days?  Kind of like that but spunkier.
