I am so stoked on foiling and eagerly looking forward to the next swell!
Here is the shorter version of this how to video:
I hope this helps! Also here is the digital protractor I use in this video to measure the angle of my foil.
I started monkeying around with renewable bamboo because I had some poles collecting dust in my garage. Building with free bamboo seemed better than ordering another couple hundred dollars worth of carbon tubes. Now that my eyes are open to building with bamboo, wood, and other plants it’s a no-brainer for me to start building with these materials and stay with it even if…
I am renaming San Francisco Tube City after seeing so many epic barrels this beautiful warm winter day. Twice in the past three years I have wished I brought a prone shortboard with me, a shallow fast reef break in Maui and this day at Ocean Beach.
Driving to the beach I had no idea it would be hollow and barreling. The last time I saw this many barrels it was huge and serious…
