Thanks piros. Is it really worth/noticeable difference to have the 7"2 HNut vs my current 7"8? Bear in mind I'm not running the carbon model...

That wave is tiny! May I ask what length/volume board that is? And, if you don't mind sharing JB, what are you weighing?

Backwards and forwards, peak to peak across a deep channel where nobody else could surf - the joy of the foil...

Video and edit by Ronnie Simpson, this is the extended version of his "Loyal to the Foil" video project. In the interview, Robert Stehlik talks about: - The history of foiling, going from the Air Chair hydrofoil, how it got adapted to two in foiling and more recently the development of bigger, thicker foils that can fly at lower speeds and allow foiling in the surf and in downwinders, pioneered by Alex Aguera of GoFoil. -How foiling works and the cool feeling of being able to fly over the surface of the ocean. -Breaching and how to minimize the wipeouts that are hard to avoid for beginners. -How foiling changed my daily routine and how small, sloppy surf can be a lot of fun. - Kai Lenny kick starting off the wave of hydrofoil surfing by posting an engaging video about downwind foiling and Dave Kalama motivating me to get better. - The importance of having the right equipment- right foil size and board size. - The difficulty of doing downwind foiling and how it's harder than learning in the surf. - learning behind a boat. - The business side of foiling and the SUP industry. - How the market for foiling seems to be bigger than expected. - The R&D process of developing foil boards and how the shapes have changed as a result of many hours on the water doing research and development. Yes, it's a tough job :)

I have tried to articulate why the foil so appealing. Most recently I have been flying down the line, doing a 180 degree cutback and then cutting back again as I hit the whitewater. To do this on a surfboard requires a BIG wave with down the line power. There has to be enough of a shoulder to race away from the barrel and then cutback without stalling. You then must maintain speed back into the face of the wave and bottom turn again.

To do all of this typically requires an 8 to 10 foot clean, perfect face. With the foil this is all possible with 2 and 3 foot imperfect waves.

As Chris Bertish said above "The Future is NOW!"

Here is Blane Chambers putting it in his words.

California, New England, old England it just doesn't matter the Foiling is GREAT!

I was out on a fantastic SUPER crowded day in New England last week aka 75+ people in the lineup. I met one of the few local foilers named Paul. It was the most crowded day I had ever foiled and they were NOT used to the foil.

The next day the crowd settled down significantly to just 30 people as the waves dropped. Paul finished his session so he caught a few of my waves on the inside, and outside, of the crowd with his drone.

Ironically this is the exact same Blue Planet Easy Foiler 6'6" that is shown in Robert's video above. I'm flying on a GoFoil Maliko 200 with straps.

Hey Stevet73,

This is the Naish Hover 135ltr with Thrust Surf XL. I am 6'2" and in this video I am 95kg.

Yes, with this combo you can just about ride anything (or nothing). An awesome DW combo for any condition, and the best thing is it will also surf well in small waves too.

Ride safe,

JB

Through last week I was on the road in SE QLD and managed to score some really fun waves at two of probably the best river mouths breaks I've ridden yet.

This is a taste of one of the waves at Noosa



And this is one from Maroochydore


Enjoy,
JB

Last week I caught up with the a few members of the East Coast Foil Club on the Gold Coast. I Mainly took photos this day, however early morning (very early) was too dark, so I shot a little video until the sun came up. Pretty cool to watch the boys shredding even in tiny conditions and all the Naish Thrust Surf Medium wings (preferred choice of the ECFC).

Here's a quick edit, enjoy.



Ride safe,

JB

More New England Foiling. This wave was like Middle Peak at Steamer Lane in California. Gently feathering on the outside 7+ feet and then flying. Best go left on the right and cut-back. The webcam only caught the tail end of the rides after 100 to 150 yards of flight.

This keeps getting better.

Here's a quick one more on the Naish Abracadabra, but it was a DW SUP Foil I did last week.

Wind didn't actually come and play and the swell was a tiny 0.5m @5sec. so quite a bit of work, but great fun anyway. Thought some might be interested as it shows more my paddle up onto the foil not just up and flying.



Ride safe,

JB

Later that same day. After the wind totally backed off and getting onto the bumps on the SUP became more effort than I was willing to endure. It was time to quickly slide the foil off the SUP and onto my 5'2" Naish Comet and toss out the tow line. Because we're shooting into the sun, it looks a lot windier than it really is. I was really amazing how fun it was cruising in the ocean and seemingly nothing, and going fast!!!



Enjoy,

Ride safe,

JB

Great vid Colas, but what is with that pumping style = The hand gestures????????

I'm guessing they're taking the piss with this?

Yes, I was wondering too why he joins the hands. Is it to have the forces of both arm perfectly in sync, thus exerting more power at a more precise timing? But I have no connections with the Horue team.

Note that his foil seems to have a very small surface by today standards, and that he must stay at a higher speed to keep flying. Maybe that's why every bit of extra power in pumping is helping...

These antics are killing me. It's hard to keep up especially on the East Coast of the US when the waves are 1.3 ft @ 8 seconds. Then there is the backup plan. Go to the garage, pickup some scraps, teach the teen to drive the dinghy a Voila!

The Ghetto Foil-Board.

I am starting to realize that the board doesn't matter. Its all in the foil.

GoFoil Maliko - $1,800

50 Consecutive Waves caught. Pretty much means things can go infinite:

That's a classic Beasho

Really interesting watching Nate on his Signature foil how far back his feet are and how close together they are. I noticed that in his clips of the race as well plus he is so relaxed. I have ridden the Signature foil and they are a much higher aspect than most foils , this would explain the rear feet mount to keep the foil up. Nates Albatross wing did have a very different rear wing to the one I tested , it was much bigger and flatter.

Set up 3 cameras on my JP Foil board and got some pretty cool vision of Dale and myself even crashing a couple of times.
I'm riding the Neil Pryde Glide large and Dale was on his GF IWA.
