There is some nice wave foiling in this video, especially from 1:25 on:


Currently my fave wave foiling clip. Nothing super fancy, just super fun ripping.

I've been pushing my limits of kitesurfing foiling last couple of years.

My new Armstrong Foils have allowed me to push harder in bigger waves and I finally had the break through session Jan 3rd 2018 at Hookipa and Lanes, Maui.

What I've learned.
  • Beatings are inevitable and painful.
    Wind angle is key success.
    High lift wings work for me but they have to have good top end.
    Stiff Long mast 110cm critical in bigger surf.
    Surfers Hate This
    Windsurfers Hate this a little less but tolerate it. They don't seem to appreciate lapping them.
    Wear a helmet
    White water is not your friend
If you want a kite foiling lesson on Maui or any other exotic location hit me up.
Demos and sales of Armstrong Foils available on Maui by appointment.
