upwind foil backpack

Postby jespin4845 » Wed Jun 07, 2017 10:15 pm

anyone figure out how to do an upwinder with a backpack with say a 24 inch mast, break it down and surf the same board downwind? or perhaps some way of locking up your foil upwind?

You should look into small ski and snowboard packs that have diagonal carry. Then maybe grommet a hole or two in the bottom so water drains. The Snowmad 24 from The North Face would work well
