New foil shop opening up in Seal Beach tomorrow. They're doing a board give away. Check @thefoilshop on instagram for details. Sounds like a good time with demo's involved.
Super old! Maybe a 2 or 3? Newer ones probably have corrections and all sorts of gizmos -- wave size enhancing filter? It would be fun to have one of the max or insta360 type cameras, I like how they erase the selfie stick. But to be honest, mostly gave up on the self filming, it's inevitably disappointing compared to what's in my mind about how good that session was ;-)Which GoPro? My 8 always amazes me how much it can smooth out video.
Towed in on a crowded day with a Bayliner, no less. Sort of missed the whole concept of 'don't ruin it for the rest of us....' Good place for wing foiling as long as you don't turn the corner. Both of those a-holes (rock thrower and foiler) re-inforce my choice to seek solitude foiling mediocre waves and returning home with a smile instead of a frown.Following up Hdip post in Learning thread "last week at Fort point a ski boat towed a foiler into a wave on a glassy day. The guy ended up falling at the end and the board washed in. Surfer came in and drug the board up on the sand. Grabbed big rocks and proceeded to "stone" the foil board."
Found the video -- posted here rather than further hijack the Learning the Basics. Not sure it'll work for non FB folks.
Shockingly, it appears foiling is not appreciated at that spot. ;-) I doubt you could get away with paddling it. Boat tow-in's are pretty much verboten at any spot where there are regular surfers, much less a spot like this. So, ultimately, not all that surprising. Will be interesting to see what comes of this, blow up the interwebs or quietly go away?
Ironically, the guy in the photo I posted is also named Brad, although as a raging narcissist he calls himself Be-Rad.
sorry hump, but that's not the point, it's not Brad, and pretty sure you don't know the rider. Pete is a ripper, one of the strongest local foilers. I am fairly sure I took that photo last winter.Ironically, the guy in the photo I posted is also named Brad, although as a raging narcissist he calls himself Be-Rad.
