Good times today riding the KeNalu IWA Hydrofoil.  We tested the new 30.5 inch mast and the IWA 775 wing.   We are still waiting to get this foil in the swells, but in towing conditions it is a blast to ride and we suspect it will be great in the waves.   The wing desi...

Foil Buzz is on Maui and we were fortunate to hang with Dave Kalama, the Mr Miagi of SUP and surf foiling.   We had a great downwind run at Kihei and Demo'd an amazing Kalama Performance Foil Board.  We will have a review on these boards shortly, but suffice it to say...

We hope you enjoy this sneak peak of our initial test session with the KeNalu IWA 775.  KeNalu jumped into the surf/SUP hydrofoil world in a big way with these new hydrofoils.  We were lucky enough to get our hands on one for testing....

It is easy to take for granted the great places in which we all live and play.  Watching this video reminds me that we live someplace truly unique.   For anyone with the downwind SUP foil bug, The Columbia River Gorge should be on your bucket list.  Enjoy this video of...

Second attempt at the Bungee Foil Set up.   Made a bit of progress and got some rides with a little running assistance.  Special thanks to blueshedshaping.com for the use of the 5' foil board!

We feel strongly that towing is the best way to introduce people to the foil.   It provides a predictable force and something to lean against when starting out.  As a rider advances, slacking the rope introduces a whole new sensation requiring a more advanced skillset....
