Is there anyone doing or interested in doing downwinders on a foil sup in Perth?
Just thinking of giving it a crack from say Leightons to Scabs..

Downwind foiling is no fun at all. Bad idea, don't bother.......

I will be giving it a shot after the King of the Cut race when my new foil SUP arrives, up till then I will mainly be down winding on my 14'er.
I have had a couple of attempts in marginal winds without any real success.

I have given a couple a try and found the best runs start from Cott onwards. Right out from the break wall at Port seems to be a bit smaller so harder to get up. Not sure what your pumping skills are like but if they are like mine, paddling out in the bigger bumps is needed. Drop into the shop to have a chat as there are a few crew doing them and we can get you in contact.
