This action was all filmed by Go Foil master Alex Aguera of the 2018 China Uemura Surf Contest at Waikiki. It’s not the first surf contest that has had a SUP foiling division but the level of the riders was definitely up with the worlds highest. Riders like Austin and Dave Kalama, Leleo Kinimaka, Nick Bennett, Derek Hamasaki are leading the charge for sure. And it looks like the board shapes are starting to push into certain directions too… shorter, thicker boards packed with volume seem to be most riders choice. But we’re sure there’s a lot more still to come from both the riders and the development of the foils and boards.
