    Hydrofoil Surfing

    Not sure if there was already a thread about this but I once saw a hydrofoil board and thought it was an amazing innovation, some may say it takes away from surfing (which also some say about SUP's), but I think it's creativity is awesome. It doesn't seem that we have the right conditions here for it though. The hydrofoil surfboard which came from the air chair could allow you to perform bigger airs and you don't even need the lip. Just thought I would expose or re-expose it to the public.

    When I was out wakeboarding a few weeks ago behind my house there was one guy towing his bud behind the boat on of them. It looked kinda goofy but def a lotta fun.

    true...i just don't see the need for all this variation around here. the hydrofoil was really to all guys to catch the massive open ocean swells which we don't get. there so much to do just with standard short or long boards I don't see to allure. I'd rather master what I ride.

    Ha!

    Nah...the 9 foot single fins were distracted by the balsa/redwood riders that were telling them to stay with wood.

    I like to master everything. I disagree that it could in any way, take away from your "regular surfing".
