James Casey probably just completed the longest recorded downwind SUP foil.
“Last Sunday I foiled from Wollongong up the coast to Sydney [Australia] with a 20-25 knot southerly front and up to 6m of south swell. I covered over 120km while Downwind SUP Foiling and had one fall at Point Potter, ‘the rodeo ring’ just south of Botany Bay.
As far as I know it’s the furthest anyone has gone downwind on a SUP foil in one day. It was fun to push my limits and do something that I had planned in a brain storm session with Dad. He would’ve loved it out there that day but I know he was out there looking out for me.
Footage is a combination of training runs and the actual run @goproanz footage put together by the team @simpson.cinema.
I used a 6’0 x 24 AVIATOR by @sunova_foil | @casey.aus with the P180 and 32.5″ mast from @gofoil and fueled up using @trueprotein cluster dextrin in my water pack and @bluedinosaurbars as solid food.
I had a support vessel trail me (@djenriquefoiler) for the middle third of the run, land support follow me the entire way (@lani.m.casey, @elizabethedmonds40) an EPIRB, lifejacket, mobile phone using the marine rescue app, flare, leg rope and radio all with me, so feel I had my safety bases covered. I also had family and friends at the finish too which was awesome, looking forward to pushing my limit further soon.”
