Come out and try a foil board. It's a feeling like no other.

Foil Board Training

Nice John, i've been fiending for an off season dose. This may be just what I need. I never got the feel with my few attempts with the kite. A few pulls behind the boat should do the trick. I'm down to go out whenever.

Yeah Jsin,

Towing behind the boat is the way to go! So much easier when you don't have manage a kite simultaneously. There guy at the end of the video has never kited (only surf/snowboard background) and he was getting some good steady lifts toward the end. We'll get there out for sure, I'll get a hold of you.

It took me a year to become efficient at this & now it is the greatest thing since first taking up kiteboarding .
I now love the 12m kite 10 to 12 mph to get started ,all the way up to 7m for 25 to 35 mph winds .
& it just stays smooth sailing ...
RIde a Carafino foil & it great to learn on ,with a board top speed of 22 MPH, now looking for a foil that will go faster ..only ones I can find are in Europe currently & they say top speed of 50MPH ,which scary to me ,but want to try a faster board .

How much for a foil board? Can you find any second hand? Looks cool.
