Yes it is. I had to do it repeatedly, one time at OBX. Bigger boards are fine. The trick is to aim for forward movement. Don’t try to get up on the board - but rather to get a little out of the water and then start gaining speed right away. That’s how you can water start directly on the foil. But still - don’t use your best/longest wing, and you want the bottom to be muddy or at least sandy.jim666 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 29, 2022 10:50 pmSo does anyone think it’s possible to waterstart a foil in water shallower than the mast length?
If you’re on a bigger board that displaces water prior to getting on foil then no. But on a pocket board where you get pulled straight onto foil maybe. It would depend on how much forward pull vs upward pull.
Anyone have experience or thoughts on this? Thanks
