Foot Placement – Mast Placement – Where and Why

Foot PlacementIn these videos I show and explain foot placement, both front and back and left to right, in relation to the front wing and how this effects foil control.  I also explain the why and when I move the mast instead of my feet and what effect this has on foiling.  For me foot placement has been crucial to have precise control and fly the foil wherever I want.   When my feet are out of place or I don't know where my feet are in relation to the front wing I flail and crash.

360 Camera DIY Mounts and Tips

360 Camera Mount After several attempts I figured out how to make this DIY 360 camera pole or paddle mount to capture the look of a drone or "follow me" tracking video shot. When foil surfing I am often riding for 500 to over 1000 yards making it difficult to video the entire ride, and even more so to capture any close up detail. This homemade pole mount allows me to catch and ride waves normally AND video myself, my gear, and the wave in full detail.

Here are videos showing the paddle pole cam mount I use regularly, and the removable pole mount that I lend to friends (can be mounted to any paddle including adjustable length paddles). The first video is an overview of the 360 camera mounts, second and third videos go in depth on how I made the mounts, and the fourth video shows how I mount a 360 camera near the blade of a paddle. Full parts list and where to buy everything needed is also included in this post.
