I made a quick vid on how to get up on a 44 liter board. I put the instruction under the vid as well. It was billing winds and I was on a 2.8 but I can use the same board in 10 knots of wind also.

Sustained backwinded riding and backwinded with a wing roll to standard toeside riding are on my current bucket list. I still canít seem to figure out how to best orient my Echoís while backwinded to add and bleed power when needed. I can sail backwinded on an old classic windsurfer all day long, but it doesnít help me one bit for wing foiling. Oh well, Iíll just keep chugging away on it......

I see a FSM board under the green winger (Maui Cloud) I wish we had a jetty like that. Looks so fun.

The Armstrong guy is riding nose low and his back foot is shaking and wobbly. Sign of running too small a tail wing, usually.

Holy moly that looks fun!  Thanks for sharing.

I had my first 2 wave wing foiling sessions this week.  First session was easy and playful, second day current was running with the wind and I was struggling to stay upwind and I felt defeated.  Both days the bowl was around head high and breaking like a real wave - I stayed far away from that and flew very conservatively.  Looking forward to seeing our better spots get some wind.
Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.

Dwight, Dave and John appreciate your suggestion and have switched to a larger stab.

This video is from a few weeks ago.  Great White North -- Sand Banks near Picton, Ontario on the north shore of Lake Ontario.  Big winds, big swell and flat water between the swell.  Rider is using an Armstrong foil with a 100 cm. mast (maybe the new 1250 wing foil?) and a 3.2 Sling Shot V2 wind wing.

FoiltheGreats from the vid above inspired me to add my rear strap and launch a couple airs for the first time yesterday.  I was pretty timid at first for some reason, basically skimming the foil.  Then I started to huck a few and man it is a great feiling.  Definitely more slow motion and lower impact that I had feared.  Can't wait to keep at the air game!
