Conditions small but 100% workable on a foil.

June was absurd.  Here is a summary of the Rhode Island buoy.

Smallest waves and MOST waves ever caught for a month.  All Thanks to the Go Foil M280!!!! (& PonoBill - Thank you Again)

Average wave size 3.5 feet @ 7 seconds, Swell 0.6 feet at 12 seconds FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH.

The peaks on June 19 and June 22nd I missed because of travel and work respectively.

625 Waves caught over 22 sessions (excluded one wing session).  Flat Flat Flat - Fun Fun Fun.  1/3 of the time I was surfing 100% alone in the most crowded corridor of the United States.

July is setting up to be another Banner Month.

This is what Fishers Island Sound looks like when the current and the boat wakes collide.

Yeah, June/July seem to be our best months (South Carolina) for foiling, a few reasons:

1. We generally get ESE trade-swell that basically keeps it knee to thigh high pretty consistently.

2. More sunlight/more opportunities with favorable tide/wind setups.

3. Less offshore winds, so we get the seabreeze daily which means kiting in the afternoon, foiling in the AM. The upside to this is we don't often get hard offshores that kill the size.

4. Warmer temps, easier to get motivated to paddle out to inlets, although, also a bit more activity in the water, so there's that.

I'm still interested in using a bigger foil on really small days. I'm still getting used to the GL210, really enjoying it so far. Next move is a smaller board (coming today).
