Foiling in Brazil

Postby TomW » Tue Oct 31, 2017 10:19 pm

Just got back from Parajuru Brazil and had some fantastic foiling in open ocean, river/Lagoon and in waves. It was totally epic and I was only foiler of 20 or so kiters.

The flatwater sessions were really good and I made huge progression with heel to toeside and toeside to heelside carves. Got to point I was nailing them even in swells and chop in open ocean.
Here's photos of a breach and fall at speed.

Thanks, that's my repaired board. It works excellent, but at 4,2 kg too heavy. Going to make another one that's 3kg
