Bodyboarding on a Foil Board

Postby OzBungy » Sun Sep 10, 2017 1:27 am

I am working through the thought processes of mounting my low speed foil and short mast on my SUP (position from tail, angle etc). It crossed my mind that it could be quite fun and educational to try bodyboarding on my foil board. I have seen videos from a guy who has built a lot of super-low aspect body boarding foils and it seemed to work ok.

Has anybody tried this? How did it go? Did you learn anything useful? Was it fun?

Gave it a go this morning and was surprised at how easy it was. Up on the foil on the first wave. Each successive wave got better and easier.

I don't think I will take it up as a sport. Without a perfect foiling wave location the ride can be a bit short. As an experiment it was just fine.
