Foiling Lopez Lake

Foiling Lopez Lake

Wanted to see how the shorter mast and wing profile on the Kai GoFoil flies under windsurf sail power (5.5m2) on my 8’5″ Hammer WindSUP board…was pleasantly surprised how controlled it was when wind foiling Lopez Lake…at least as long as I kept the front wing in the water…;-)

Will be interesting to see how Alex’s windsurf foil differs when it comes out…most likely longer mast…my Horue wind foil’s mast is 1m2 long……

I flew the Horue on an Exocet Turbo Boost slalom board…could have had a 5.0m2 up during that sesh…too much wind…kind of a white knuckler…;-)
With normal windsurf gear I probably would have been on a 6.2m2 fully powered up…on a later sesh, I put up a 5.0m2…and, gathered more insight…even though the wind got swirly and cycled up and down…but, it’s starting to come together…

Wind foiling is a challenging and humbling sport…but, I can’t wait to get back up on that bucking bull…;-)
