Re: Surfboard to foilboard conversion

After a day trying to foil in challenging conditions I am much happier with the changes to my board.

Re: Joining the foiling generation?

Day 4 and 2 more sessions. Today I was 69% depowered on the 6m and foil. Waves were getting big and this was the most wind (a bit gusty too) and biggest waves yet on the foil. I'm doing pretty damn good! I am glad that I did not bring my surfboard out with me today. I would have not tried to foil in...

Re: Joining the foiling generation?

I had a 10 day break between foil practice days. 3rd day out with 2 more sessions the other day to get me back to where I left off.

Phase 2 cut off the nose to shorten it to 5'0". Introducing a wider nose with more volume and concave.

Surfboard to foilboard conversion

I converted my old broken 2011 North 5'8" WAM. Thanks to Mark Franklin for the work and use of his shop.

This is what it looked like when it was new.
