Describe the lesson. It's very likely that, that's just how foiling is the first session.

Foiling needs to get the equivalent 12 foot, 24 inch wide tanker that the tourists at Waikiki use (so that they can get up and "rip" on their first try and send photos to everyone how well they surf).

I got up on the foil behind a boat yesterday.

I can't imagine not learning behind a boat before going in the surf.

I have a friend who did it but he is a really good surfer and he made a concerted effort.

I just went around the lake twice on friday and my legs are so sore. I never use them that way.

Hey Autoprax, I only went behind a boat one time...I really don’t think it helped me. It’s like a different sport.

Just chuck it on a heavy 6’ board and paddle out

Well your legs won’t be sore when you do it in the surf because the longest ride will be two seconds haha.
