This is the run we did yesterday, when the wind blows for the South here like for this run we find the first day of wind is the best before the swell gets to big and makes it a bit trickier.

Whoa! Nice vid. Great run. Just wondering what foils were used?Obviously L or XL but what brand?
Looks to be about 20 knot wind.

*Just a guess but judging by what I can see.
I'd say PJ is on a 200 Go Foil and BT on a 102 Axis, am I right?

Cool video anyway guys.

I think you are. I was going to mention same. Axis has red mast. The Go foil has blue wing. But not 100% sure. Not sure on wing sizes either.
Just wondering if a large Neilpryde wing on a SUP would get up & go. Quite sure it can.

I should probably let people with more knowledge answer that one but I think that would depend on weight and experience.

For experienced downwind foilers I'd say yes.

However from my experience as a learner on big 280 Go Foil, Id say it wouldn't be easy to learn on.

yeah I was on the gofoil and Ben was on the Axis of about the same size, I have used both and found the Axis harder to get up but it might have had a slightly higher top end.

For learning the bigger 280 is still the best but I am sure others are coming!!
