I’ve seen it before, mostly with the Triton monofoil, but never held so long. Good work!

Unfortunately you don't. Ryan Parsons named it the Rhino slide about 2 years ago. I've even seen @Regis-de-giens doing some of them.

That is the longest slide I've seen done though and I don't think I've seen a roll with it to end. That looks pretty epic with the roll at the end.

Nice slides!!

Doing them strapless and way way shorter. Love breaching and its a pretty regular part of my riding. Favorite slide is to capture the sensation of a good floater on a surfboard. Breach the foil and grind the front wing along the top of some whitewater, then kind of drop the length of the mast into the crumbling wave and pop back up to foiling to continue down the line. After first seeing your slide clips I started trying to copy you and turn the board the full 180 so the floater slide sort of turns into a transition and you end up cut back on the wave in the other direction. Super fun and I thank you for the inspiration. Keep it up.

Looks awesome!

But I fear for the foil components and bolts! 😬

That second vid looks like foil slide to Jesus walk. Unfortunately I’d guess you’re not even the first person to do that! :lol:
