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.]
