First attempt to fly the Gofoil Maliko downwind SUP foil in the San Francisco Bay here in Alameda.
With the foil sticking out of the bottom of the board and the camera pole sticking off the top it was a bit of a challenge to get it in and out of the water. Pretty comical actually, and then at the end of the run the water is only a couple feet deep over thick mud. To get back to land I took the camera pole off, turned the board upside down, and prone paddled to the beach. The fisherman didn’t quite no what to make of me or what I was doing.
Trying for a wave I felt the board accelerate and release, or maybe even fly? Good thing I have the video to watch and see what was going on, as when in the water I couldn’t tell if the board was flying or not.
Good fun and another learning experience.
