Out on my old self-shaped 9' Green Machine. It's a little waterlogged but still turns great. Enjoy 8)

That was a fun day for sure, and you were definitely having a blast in the video. But we gotta get you on a foil, cuz where you're running out of wave...on the foil we're just approaching the half way mark, on our almost 400' rides, and at 16+ mph too boot.

Lemme know if/when you wanna give it a try, I think I've got enough spare equipment for you to take for a spin if you like.  :)

Lotta rides in some quality June gloom. I woulda liked to have seen a shot of your hand shaped green machine.
One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"

That's cool. When I started shooting POV is when I discovered that I talk to myself when surfing, too...LOL

I know.... You guys are like crack dealers with your foils. I'm surrounded by foilers. One of these days I'll give it a go.

@ TallDude

What fin setup were you using. Three fin?
I've run it as a thruster before, but like it better as a quad. The forward fins are Futures F8 (Flat Foil) and the rears are O'Fish'L (80/20 Foil). I had a whole set of O'Fish'L quads, but busted one of the forward boxes out on a reef. They don't make O'Fish'L boxes anymore, so I put Futures boxes in. Thus the mixed brands.

You're right. As soon as the GoPro is on, I start talking to myself? Maybe it's effecting my brain???? Na....

When it's low tide the waves better be good, because it can be a brutal 100 yard walk if you're not wearing reef shoes. Usually the tide will be up either going in or coming out. So it's only painful one way ;D

You mean my buddy. I never feel lonely surfing at Nuc's. I wasn't alone on this session either.
