Nice ! Is that a zeeko ?

Looks like you are still pretty fast and outrunning the wave. If you can, try a SUP/Surf foil like Takuma or GoFoil which are much slower and will allow you to stay with the wave.

Thanks Man!

Yes, that is Zeeko White and Green - which I reallly loooooveee!!!

But you are right... - I am outrunning the wave. this is what I want to achieve changing the foil model - to actually surf the wave.
I am still learning too...
But I am willing to get a surf foil for sure!!!

Also, as you can see, I have the most laid-off waves and wind all year around.
I am in Natal - Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. The beack is Ponta Negra.
You are all invited to check out! - just message me in pvt

Regardssss

I have the same zeeko. It's a great foil. I also tend to outrun the foil and have to turn back towards it. The surf foil like Takuma is a lot slower.
