Ok, who was it? I caught you on my evening cam check.

Looking good.

Steamroller most likely. No camera's where I was today. But man was it soooooo crowded. Thankfully the foil allows me to get to an outside reef and the old SUP guys out there like me and understand that I won't be in their way once I'm up.

Edit: Checked the cam rewind. Yeah looks like steamroller to me, on his new GL gofoil. Those high aspect wings go so fast on the pump! Jealous of that session. I'm sick of summer crowds.

That board looks huge and heavy steamroller. I thought you had a new pink smaller board.

Yikes!  I wonder if you were using the tuttle versus plate mount if the board would have held up?

tuttle wouldn't have helped...waves were waaaay to big...6 foilers out there just trying to survive...everybody agreed it should have been a surfing day...too big for foilsurf

kinda glad it tracks ripped out...otherwise it might've broken the wing...that GL210 is unobtainium for a couple more weeks..

boards not even 2 months old...gave it to sam pa'e and said..."readyyyyy...GO!"...he learned to vacuum bag from mark raaphorst anyway...when hes done with it it'll be 11.25 lbs instead of the original 11.0lbs and good as new...

Man, sorry about the board but yeah, a little glass and vacuum and you’ll be good to go.

Good to see you out there man.
