A record of what it is like for an old bloke to take up foiling.
Does experience at SUP and Wavesailing count for much or is it more like starting again.

Another board and a bigger foil
If at first you don't succeed - buy more gear.
Here is a photo of another board that I converted to having a foil.
Southpoint Bonga Perkins design 9'5" by about 28" wide, wide point forward.
All this stuff at the bottom is a record of riding it for the first time, SUP foil style (on-the-knees to take off).
10 waves in 2 hours was a reflection of the long period of parts of the small swell.
[I doubt I will be using the orange board again.]
