Fun foiling in the Grenadines
« on: December 01, 2021, 07:28:54 PM »
Two good sessions so far with perfect conditions on Bequia.  Jimmy Lewis Flying V, Fanatic Aero Foil and Duotone Unit 5m.. wish I had a smaller wing specific board, but the Flying V serves as SUP foil too. Used my 4.2 F-One today in stronger winds. Learning the harness.
 Thanks to my patient wife for taking the video from the deck.

Thanks Cowboy, yes it is a magical setting and I have windsurfed these waters for more than 25 years. Time to sell that gear as it’s wing foiling time.  We get some great open ocean swells that come through, and I am looking forward to foiling them. We get a nice breaking wave below my house, but too shallow for a foil, lots of coral. Good for surfing as long as you don’t wipe out
