Hello, I’ve been Foiling for some years now mainly in the surf and have been a huge fan of all of this. Cheers to the progression.
In my day to day foil surfing (waves depending) it has been favored to go at least 10mph (on the larger wings 2000sqcm/500) if the waves are small and when it’s flat pump foiling is only so fun for so long. Wether it be dock starts or running pulls. So this is ultimate for me to imagine being on a motored foil. If only we can easily foil everyday. That’s priceless, shhhh don’t tell anyone, jk. Seriously though I’m wondering if we can do a minimal build and have a better flight experience if we are more engaged in our riding. As in pumping and having flow trying to ride full mast efficiently and having the help of a motor to just sustain it longer than the pump foil videos you have seen. On a side note I am shooting for some major hp on one of these epic rigs. Who knows maybe I will just make my own like I first started doing in 2007 making paddles then boards and now foils.
Just returning from a foil trip throughout Oregon left us in awe having a blast teaching some of the friends family how to foil behind a dinky 14’ aluminum with a 6hp 2-stroke. It was action at even 7mph on our foils. Top speed with a whip was 12mph that day. I would like to have a kit to tow a foiler with, it would require low end torque and only need to peak at say 14mph. Does that setup exist?
