Nice quadcopter footage too. Who's going foiling at OB?

By the looks of the video, he's riding a foil and the waves are speed bumps. Pulls away from the wave when riding with it, and rides over/through the wave when getting back out.

that's interesting whatever its going to be called foiling riding waves w.e., but i still prefer to be mano a mano raw with the wave and actually get to surf it. that looked too civilized for me. thx for sharing tho.

more interesting how he rotates the footage >K($

There's this thing... called the lip. It's really fun to play around with on a board.

I'm not seeing much lip time here. Yawn.

I see riding in waves but wave riding might be a stretch
