Anyone muck around with one as a wake board
Can the captain please supply a update
Fong, at the moment I'm keen to get it back out in some small-medium size waves to get the feel for the foiling. Its a different type of surfing to regular surfing which is done mostly around the surface of the water. Foiling is more about the power in and under the water, which tends to rest more in the upper area of the wave. I'm keen to get back out because I have a feeling heading for an immediate high line will help with speed and help the board stay hydrofoiling for longer.
Brett is experimenting more now with foil shapes and configurations, and we came up with some ideas for a different board to have on top so the tail of the board doesn't get caught in the wave and cause drag. I'm sure he'll be testing a few things for a while before he hands them over to the crash test dummy (me ).
At the moment I think is about making it more user friendly and working out what will work the best on a wave. I'm sure as you know, pretty much all other hydrofoils out there are made for flat water, not a curved wave.
Anyway, I leave that side to Brett and just tell him when I've broken his hydrofoil and it needs fixing.
