Surfed a normal board for 4 sessions. I was feeling unfulfilled. I foiled today at a wave I typically don't like foiling. But the tide was super high today and it was 2-3 feet. Nailed 4 2for1's almost immediately. My pump was on point today. 2018 Naish Thrust still working for me. Gonna keep telling myself that and ride it til it breaks.

foiled my first week of my trip then was forced by the swell to surf the second week, took 10 sessions in reasonably powerful waves to get my swing back to maybe 85% on a performance board, had to force myself to move my back foot back over and over, did some decent turns and got a nice glassy sunrise double up french barrel last day so was pretty pleased to be able to surf again after 5 months of foil only.
now i'm home i'll only surf the bigger days, small wave surfing is obsolete in my opinion at my age.

Rode the new axis setup. feels a lot more stable and smooth relative to the naish I was using. No breach take offs, my m.o. only one when I switched w Grendel and tried his mfc setup. Same weight as the naish 2018 since the axis mast and fuse is so bulletproof. The carbon foam core wing is way lighter and I noticed the positive buoyancy when I put it in the water.

Setup the SoloShot and went to the secret spot today. Since I went to the trouble to show my brother the session you guys might as well see it too.

Yeah it’s Surfline cam rewind. The joke was it’s a secret spot and no cameras allowed type of place.

Met Sven out there. And another guy was in a hat and on a lift foil when I first paddled out. But he went in right after I got there saying he’d been out a bunch already.

Gotta love surfing Malibu and only going left. Goofy foot goals.
From everything I’ve read and heard on podcasts. No I don’t recommend the solo shot. Never used one myself though. Get the hand kite. I wanna see one in person. Then we’ll do county to Zuma downwinders.

Used the 900 wing for the first time yesterday, the axis rig for the only the second time. Still very smooth. Didn't feel like the flatter ha wing was twitchy like my past setup. The tips have some anhedral curve to them so maybe this helps. Not flat like the albatross, but I'm not turning w the tips out either.

My mate & I bought 900,s about 3 months ago - both really stoked with our wings. I'm finding the 900 just gets better every session & if you keep the speed up has heaps of pump - grunt.

Third session on the MFC 1400,
Lift Glide 200 is feeling pretty good. Here's one little combo from today.
Dang Hdip! How shallow does it get as you go off screen? looks like you're up on the beach!

Third session on the MFC 1400 wing today. Not as quick as the 1250, but still wraps tight at speed and pumps well out the back. Gonna try swapping between wings tomorrow to feel the real difference.

it gets deeper as he goes off screen..
theres a deep channel...the shallow spot where the wave is crumbling is a pile of rocks...plus hes at high tide...weve found the general rule at 1st point is 4ft tide and higher...the higher the better but 4ft is the lower limit...and GO Left!...

yeah it’s a weird spot. Shallowest where you take off. You’re running into the path the river breached last year so there is just enough depth. At that size you have to stand on the bottom when the wave is coming if you bottom out and dry Dock on your wing. You can actually go along the beach about ten feet from shore as there’s a small trench there.

what does the 1400 do better than the 12?
