I did make one (putting some finishing touches on it this morning). I posted a "nearly done" pic in the thread over at Swaylocks.

But this is Kaser's thread and they're talking about the foil trend among the SUP guys so I don't want to threadjack.

The design I'm using is one Surffoils developed for microwave gliding (not "ripping"), and as he says it's all over there in the Swaylocks thread.

Please consider starting a new thread on this forum. If your board works I will try to make one similar. Also, wouldn't it make sense to put some fins on the bottom of the foil itself, to keep from spinning out, or should the struts or mast keep that from happening?

I can see why people bred on the goFoil advertising would think that nothing else works but Google Hydrofoil surfboard and look around and theres a lot of new variations and old pioneers who used prone or standup foils long before I did and decades before Laird or Kai. Gilbert Lum in Hawaii and Terry Hendricks in Ca. were surffoiling since the 1970s. Foiling is a basic concept of a fin laying on its side that lifts. Almost every foil design works to some degree and its not so much making it work which is easy, but refining it for what you want to do. Theres a long way to go with foil design and it wont suit everyone but theres a good number of surf and ocean sports thats will enjoy trying foiling. Ive got some old videos on Vimeo of very basic flat ply foils on prone boards that are fast and easily tube ride. Kai blew everyones mind because no one thought it was possible but theres a lot more to come.

Thanks but post away. The more content on the subject the better. I think the subject as a whole will encourage independent thought and possibly re-kindle some people's stock to do something in the ocean that produces pleasure. wave2

If foil surfing has been around for so long, why has nobody seen it before now? And I'm not talking about tow foil.

Is it because the technology and materials weren't there? Is SUP the catalyst?

sure, i think george greenough and a few others (i sux at names) were at it... but the craze of self promotion was lacking me thinks. it certainly seemed, at least to me, as documentarion rather than look at meeeeeism.

but whatever, i am happy u r happy. that's all life's about right? have fun...

i know i sound stand-offish sometimes and heckle a LOT, those who trained me as a kid were hard... what can i say.

if i heckle u, it's just me sayin i <3 care.

peas.
9'4"

p.s. check out my basque friends foil design, kids a feak when it comes to designing stuff... he moght be of use to you guys out there. we spaniards come cheap lately, no jobs here so what the hell.... chek him out, on the link i posted above. it's a different design to what you guys are using, has a double wing up front. in the shape of a rectangle.
