What wind? It was the Pacific lake today in Malibu. Never seen it so flat. Were you at county line?

Yesterday morning it was actually windy, I would say 15nd south wind at county line.

Anybody does down wind foiling in Los Angeles area ?

There are some good runs especially north Malibu.
Today I did a upwind/dw, 15 min upwind super boring and 2min dw super fun !

It was nice meeting you at Latigo a month or two back when I was surfing there.  Not ready for dw foiling yet but have been having a blast in the waves.  A friend lent me an IWA wing and it was night and day to my M160 so I upgraded to an IWA / M200 combo--love the IWA everytime I have it out.  If you need a shuttle, I wouldn't mind taking my 14' out for a light downwind run on a WNW at some point.

You finally made it up here!  The waves washed away the beach a couple weeks ago which makes it a bit hard to get up and down the rocks but otherwise fun waves... am sure I will see you on the water.

Not really L.A area but depends on the traffic it can be close by ;)

Sano is definetly my favorite spot to go foiling, not only the wave but the vibe, the people you meet makes it so great.

Yesterday two kids I used to train sup racing were having a blast foiling.

What a good dw last sunday. The biggest I'va seen here, wind at some point were like 30nd and the bumps in the 3 last miles were huges.

I did a 14 km launching at Sano going straight to Dana Point harbor.

That is impressive.  I'm glad someone was there to capture that image.  Very cool.
