Ocean rodeo is too hard core for foiling.

I've always liked Ocean Rodeo, but I don't understand why you would wait for their foil. There's probably over 50 good foils on the market now! Some companies now on their third or fourth generation of foil, and really putting out good products at lower prices (Zeeko, MHL, Liquid Force, Levitaz, Keetos, F-One, Delta...).

First generation usually can't compete with someone on their third or fourth year of refining the design.

OR lives in an area where there is lots of kelp, floating logs, and rocks. Probably not going to be high on the list of things to get done RIGHT NOW! ;)

For start they could offer the Duke and the Jester with mounting holes or tracks for the foil attachment...
But I am with others - do not wait. If you would like to hydrofoil, choose from many that are in production already and start to have fun right now! :D

Has anyone put a plate foil on a Duke or Jester? I was wondering if there is too much curvature. Do you need some kind of adapter?

Precisely - go get a foil, NOW :rollgrin:

You will regret you did not do it long time ago, when you have learned and find the love for it :thumb:
