Foil in waves looks pointless to me. You can't offda'lip properly and there is no splash
But you might be able to ride upside down in the tube hanging from the top of the tube at Jaws. Apparently that is one of the hopes Laird Hamilton had when he was first developing the foil for surfing.
It may be that a foil strapless would work on a very big fast wave with chop on the surface.
Like most things, it would be interesting to see how far it could be developed.
