Why hydrofoil?

Recommended Posts

I think my question would be, why not?

That looks like a recipe for disaster! I'm too old to face plant from 20' in the air. :-)

It must be difficult to learn, I have seen many different riders doing flips and all sorts of stuff on a hydrafoil, but I have never seen anyone learning on one. I am sure this is not the case, but it looks like you just get on one and start flipping.

Well..., kind of. It's just that when you first start, you're not trying to flip. Still do it anyways.

Amen!

This was a big air contest a couple years ago. I was the only foil rider.... And probably10 years older than any other competitor.

Stay at least 5 miles from any airport or the FAA will have you for an airspace incursion.

I need to borrow someones foil to try it.

Can you rent foils?

There have been a few shops who rent foils. Hasn't been every year, much less every lake though. Might be easier for one of us to hook you up with a rider in your area. Let us know when & where you do a camping/boating trip & maybe we can get you hooked up with someone.

Not cheap to get into for good equipment that's upgradable compared to wakeboarding or wake surfing.

So I know riders in Penticton, Salmon Arm & Burnaby. Plus organized events on Pine Lake & Seely Lake. Not to mention our own organized event on Lake Pend O'reille in July.

We definitely need to hook up & will have several options to do that!
