Gripe: Instragram video sucks!  How is it possible that they have no scroll for reverse and forward.  No native link to the original video poster?  Madness.
That drives me crazy--not knowing whether you've watched 1% or 90% of the video.  It's one reason I don't have an instagram account.  Although my dog does, and he uses it every day.  I guess when he watches a video, whatever part he's watching is the best video ever for him.

Some details on the signature wings.  It is the best video Mike's dog and I have ever seen.

That is good to see.  No board leash, though.  Runaway board self rescue would be a good follow-up vid :).

Just ordered a Sling Wing and it should be here in a couple of weeks. I'm hoping it will give us more access to these waves.  :)

Thatís the best tanker wave footage I have seen.  You need a foil.  It would be all time.

Yes, it is Galveston and the foil is definitely my ride of choice :)
My buddy's new boat should arrive soon and hopefully we'll have some tanker footage to share.

That wave had way more size and whitewater push than I would have imagined. 

What people don't realize who haven't been on a foil is how much we feel 'Sorry' for people on surfboards.  Last summer on the East coast I would watch people surf and realize that the longboarders were GLUED to the edge of the whitewater.  There was NO way to escape down the line and do carving turns.  Sure you can on a Steamroller of a 10 foot wave in Fiji but NO WAY IN NORMAL SURF.

The foil changes all of that.  You can fly down the line and play 100 yards away from the whitewater AT SPEED. Turn hard enough to stress your legs out and come out FLYING the other direction with NO LOSS OF SPEED.  Those tanker waves would let you get in and then just go crazy with all that shoulder.  In fact they are probably better than typical ocean waves.  At Steamer Lane for example we can get rides for up to 2 minutes 600 to 800 yards but it has to be 15 ft+ @ 18 seconds. 

You have a semi-predictable shipping pattern.  And if there is wind - NO PROBLEM.

Here was a shot taken last weekend.  It was 4 to 5.5 feet on takeoff and the shoulders would fade to nothing.  Turning with speed on nothing.

So true Beasho! The more I foil the less I want to SUP.

I miss Insanity Cruz, The lane, 3 mile and Waddle.

I'm envious of your rides....huge waves and long rides. One day I'll get better :)

Here's a video I made for friends from the other day. The cam is on our deck and unfortunately the 150 yd rides are not in view.

yes foiling is fun but sometimes you got to surf the wave once in a while  :)
