Kai said it and we think he’s right / SUP downwind foiling

Kai said it and we think he’s right / SUP downwind foiling

After what seems to be a week of SUP foil madness, Kai and outside TV released a short interview video about him talking all about SUP downwind foiling and the effect it will have on downwinding in the future. For endless glides and connecting swells, using a SUP foil for downwinding makes perfect sense. There’s also plenty of space in an open ocean unlike surf foiling which could become very dangerous at crowded beaches, as some of you guys pointed out on our Facebook page recently.

It’s going to be very interesting to see where foiling for downwinding will end up. Are we going to see an increase in downwind boards on the SB classifieds? Probably not just yet…  in one sense the board you’re riding becomes almost irrelevant when it’s not in the water! But the next 3 years could be very different when it comes to SUP downwinding.

The next question is:  Who will make the first inflatable SUP that will take a foil? And is it possible?!!’

We’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear anything on that one!!!
