The second in a series of "how-to" videos on SUP Foil focuses on the equipment. We always need to know and understand how our equipment works and how we can make it best work for us. In part two of this series we will learn about the equipment and other products we might need to help us in our learning journey.
LEARN TO SUP FOIL – PART 2: UNDERSTANDING YOUR EQUIPMENT
By SUP Magazine
Ever since Kai Lenny introduced us to the magic of SUP foiling in 2016, the SUP world hasn’t been able to get enough. But while Lenny and other SUP pros make riding a foilboard look easy, learning to do it yourself presents a formidable challenge. Most first-timers spend more time face-planting and less time foiling during those early sessions.
As with most things worth doing, learning to SUP foil takes practice. To help smooth out the process, we enlisted San Francisco-based paddler and videographer Clay Schmitz (aka Clay Island) for a crash course. In this three-part skills tutorial, Schmitz talks us through the process of learning to SUP foil--the good, bad and ugly of it. Because it’s always easier learning from someone else’s mistakes instead of your own.
