For our collective amusement, post the interweb's most anti-foil messaging ... the more over-the-top the better.

Hint: the comments section is always where you are more likely to find the gold.

Here's today's installment:

"I do not like the foil trend, no I do not. It's not enough to ride a boat, while carrying a spear? Now you gotta go and put a knife on the bottom. F**k that, dudes."

"It's all about the constant need for attention. They are the same people that need to suck at skiing / snowboarding while wearing a costume upon trips to the mountains."

Especially the early posts, when it was being discussed whether or not to set up this splinter forum for the foil deviants. Since then, it seems like the surfer haters have gotten bored and moved on, not much action left there.

The best spot for crazy hatin' remains the comments on instagram and facebook posts made by mainstream surf stars. EG when Kelly Slater posts a video of a foiler, the commenters will just spew ... but then add "except for Kai Lenny, he's ok". ahahaha. Kook of the day is definitely a winner on the occasional foil post.

Anyways, hope this tread doesn't offend anyone's finer sensibilities. I figured if there's anywhere in the world that people wouldn't be afraid to have a laugh at themselves, it would be a sup foil forum hosted in Australia!
