It’s well documented that foils give standup paddlers the ability to ride waves that were previously untouchable. This includes even the smallest pulses of energy that could never be harnessed by the traditional means of SUP or prone surfing. Of course, with the ability to ride small bumps comes the opportunity to ride those waves for a very long time.
Case and point, this latest video from Flag Beach, Fuerteventura, where drone footage captures a paddler riding a single wave for a full two minutes. And despite the relatively gentle swell, the foil allowed the paddler to not merely ride the wave, but to gather some impressive speed and perform countless smooth carves. Check it out, it might just sell you on SUP foiling once and for all.
