Is anyone doing it?

How do you find it?

Can you nose ride and foil?

What foil are you using?

Should i stick with a go 9'1 or cruise a cruiser 9'3?

Can I borrow someones foil longboard for a demo?


Im really looking forward to all your foiling exploits and experiences

What does "foiling" mean?

I know what a foil on a fin is, thick front, gradually thinning to the back.

I kind of know what a foil on a board means, again, going front the rear , starting thing, getting thicker around the centre and then thinning out at the rear, in extreme cases it makes the profile of the board almost like an S shape.

Is that what you mean? If it is, then I think is would make a pooy nose rider because of the uneven distribution of water across the board, I just don't think the board would lock in underwater from the mid section to the tail.

I laugh if a 666 isn't bad enough without a blade stuck on it.

Is that what it's called , foiling.

yes, there's one or two people doing it around my way and they're pretty good at it, but they tend to stay well always from everyone, I'm guessing because even they know they don't have a lot of control over them.

dont think I'd like to get hit by one, the foil looks pretty sharp.

so there's a guy using one in a fish shape, why would the shape matter it's not in the water

I don't think it's called nose riding on one of those, they call it face planting

They are very dangerous in the hands of inexperienced kooks

Should be regulated like jetskis...carnage.
