If you've mastered all the tricks, if flat water is all you have access to, then I can imagine flat water could be dull.jumptheshark wrote: ↑Sun May 05, 2019 6:06 amI’m not sure yet, but flat water and wave gear have never been a thrilling combo.
I’m still mid experiment. On my third wing in three seasons. Haven’t gone back to try a smaller wing yet. At this point I’m happy in flat water/light wind just learning the limits on a bigger low aspect but fast profile wing. At this stage working on tacks is plenty fun. Eventually I can see it losing some thrill and maybe wanting to try my faster wings again. I have a foil that can be assembled canard and want to try that someday but am having too much fun on the learning curve to bother just yet.
Southern summer I had flat water estuary, waves at the beach and a harbor to play in on the foil. Each was fun, but the max giggles came from playing in the estuary.
I was trying new tricks, refining techniques, playing silly buggers with my buddies, carving it up and generally just relaxing and having a great time.
Each to their own. Some people are just happy riding directionals in waves, day in day out.
