First time foiling today. Loved it!

After 20mins and one walk of shame failing to get anywhere, I scored my first short run on the foil and was hooked! 2 hours later, and I was getting pretty consistent 100m on the foil including slowly going downwind (up-wind was easy). I think I spent most of the time in the water, but I'm now checking forecasts for anything more than 10knots. Fair to say I'm hooked!

If anyone is thinking of trying it - do it!

Gear was Shinn Jackson (130) with Airush Core Foil (1000cm front wing) and 9m Airush Ultra - Highly recommended!

Went to Leighton (WA).

Yep, there's no going back for you now. Welcome to the obsession.

Well that answers the question if people can learn on a big wing or not.

Nice one!

It's the new fpr gear windfoil.
No board necessary.

Ps. I know ral inn gets it but If you haven't checked in on the windfoil 2018 thread you might not get it

Yes it's all about those three letters of the alphabet.
