... hey FoS,

did the wind/conditions play ball for you, any luck on testing your new foil?

Cheers,

Robbie

So I got out yesterday - not really Ideal conditions a bit light and gusty but ...

I really feel like I'm starting again. The double agents lift is so small that it was fairly easy to manage.
While on the duotone Surf wing, i've placed my back foot about 4 inches in front of the mast to stop porpoising.

Out of 2 hour session I probably got 10 minutes glide.
And the forecast down here is flat out northerlies or nothing for the next week, so we'll see how we go.

... yeah it's the downside to having high performance equipment, they tend not to be the easiest to initially learn on,,,,,, but you will definitely be grateful for that performance when you get used to it. I'm starting to really appreciate how good the Spirit Carve is now and have mucho fun on it.

Hang in there, it might feel like it takes a bit of time but well worth it in the end,,,, guaranteed!!

Cheers for now,

Robbie :)

by the looks of your avatar picture you never got started in the first place....

just jokes. It will click, won't take as long as learning to foil the first time. Went through a horrid time just moving from the estuary to the ocean with waves...then prone foil on a surfboard, Then onto the SUP - different again. All good man, enjoy the crashes .
