Flat Water Pump with a Dock Start

September 20, 2018

 

I was inspired watching the young guys from Oahu beach start earlier this summer.  And since then there have been many other great videos of people doing dock starts, etc.  I tried a handful of times over the summer and failed.

 

It's the end or our wind season in The Gorge and after a two week period without much wind I decided to put more effort into it.  I'm guessing I did 30 attempts on a GoFoil Maliko 200 with minimal success.  It was starting to get dark and it was raining and I felt ok with my process but I wanted more so I put on my GoFoil Maliko 280 and after three falls I could tell I was close.  

 

I hopped on the 4th attempt on the big foil and had a ride 5x longer and I ended that evening on a high.  Keep in mind I put in a lot of effort last Fall with the bungee and jet ski just to get some pump training going.  The next day I invited a bunch of fiends to try it and they got this video of me.
