FOILING – Beginners GUIDE – Antoine Albeau – Windsurfing.TV

New to Foiling?
Haven’t got a clue whats it all about?
Well this guide should help… as we caught up with Windsurfing Foiling expert Antoine Albeau last month in Japan and he gave us the full run down.
– A quick intro into how he got into Foiling over in Maui
– Intro to the New Neilpryde Foils… Racing and entry level
– Talks us through the different parts of the Foil and what they do.
– Boards.. do you need a foiling board or not

I found it super interesting and learnt a fair bit.
More foiling stuff coming soon.

What Windsurfing needs and foil too, I’m looking at the freeride ver JP Hydro Foil 135, Naish Hover 122, but I don’t want a quiver of sails / masts booms etc, This looks promising, but already it’s looking costly, what Windsurfing needs is one mast cover 3 sails one boom and a wind range 6/8 – 20/25knots! I’m just not going to get re engaged with multiple boards sails masts and equipment, I just want fun on the water and maximum time on the water when I go to the lake, beach or harbour!

I did the other way for 15 years and in the end it drove me out of the sport for the last ten years, this looks promising, I hope the windsurf industry has learnt this and that is why kite surfing is appealing to many though I’m not and never have been interested in Kite surfing though I can appreciate it. But one board and kites pack up in boot of car simple!

Windsurfing lost that somewhere! Please make fun freeride kits for these boards on on mast/boom/base easy no cam Sail 6.5 down to 4.5m be my pref! Good video though cheers.

It looks like something that wants to hurt you, badly.

I’d  cut 12mm off the deep tuttle adapter ( became regular tuttle ), welded  flat aluminum plate on the bottom of the tuttle adapter  added 1mm rubber flat gasket ( purpose : to distribute forces over the larger plane area)   and now using  any regular tuttle box board with aluminum foil successfully. total cost $850USD for foil and conversion.

Rick Mulder says:

So what sail sizes are the best for lite wind? Do you need formula size sails or will a 8.5m do the trick?

Great info, I’m really considering getting a foil to use with my old formula boards.
