FOILING – Beginners GUIDE – Antoine Albeau – Windsurfing.TV

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

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.

It was a fun day!

SUP Foil R&D: testing the Easy Foiler Stand Up Paddleboard and hydrofoil

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

Foil R&D: testing the Blue Planet Easy Foiler prototype which will be available as part of our 2018 product line. This prototype board was a 7’6 Foil board with 10″ of it’s tail cut off to make it a 6’8″ x 30″ board. The shorter length makes the foil easier to control when flying and is less likely to touch the water when pumping. The foil is a new prototype designed for maximum stability, control, predictable handling, and adjustability. Both our foil specific boards and Foils are expected to be available in late 2017.

We have been working on foil and board design which requires re-thinking design concepts. For a SUP surfing board, you want to maximize maneuverability and carving turns while still maintaining enough stability and glide to catch a wave. On a foil board, the board design is irrelevant once you lift off and you basically want to minimize the swing weight and size of the board once you are off the water. Turning and carving rail to rail are not a concern on a foil board design (assuming that all you want to do is foil on it, not a multi purpose board). So the primary design concerns are minimizing board size while maximizing lift, glide and tracking to catch the wave and have enough stability to paddle back out.

Watching this video testing 7’6×30 Foil board, I noticed that the tail of the board often touches the water when I’m pumping, increasing drag and making it harder to keep the foil flying.

The foil is mounted 20″ from the tail and it seems like the last part of the tail was not doing any good, so I decided to experiment and cut 10″ off the tail to make the board 6’8 long, making the distance from the tail to the foil 10″.

So far, I’m really happy with the shorter board. With the straight outline and double concave bottom shape with hard rails, the board still tracks relatively well and creates enough lift and glide to catch the wave. Once the foil lifts off, it is noticeably easier to control and is easier to keep flying without touching the water.
I have been working on a new foil design and recently tested the first prototype which was CNC’d from a solid piece of G10 fiberglass. Since the foil is quite thick, it weighs a TON, so I was doubtful that it would work at all, especially with the smaller board. Just getting the board with the super heavy foil to the water was a pain. Surprisingly, once on the water, the weight was not a big deal. The heavy Foil wing actually acts like the lead keel on a sailboat and makes the board more stable when paddling. Since the wing is submerged, the weight is not that noticeable. Flying it also felt stable and easy to control although I’m thinking that once we make the mold so we can build lighter composite construction foil wings for production, they will fly more quickly and longer and certainly be easier to transport. This is the first video using the shorter cut off board with the new, super heavy foil prototype, riding waves that are not steep enough to surf on a regular board.

First Flight – Downwind Foil Surfing San Francisco Bay

Friday, May 26th, 2017
Stoked to fly the foil for the first time in the San Francisco Bay on a downwind run. I had concerns and doubts that the bumps might not have enough power to fly a 200 pound person. I feel very relieved and excited to know we can fly in the bay. Yes!!! Thanks to Drew and the Barbary Ghost for the support, and stoked to go with a great group. Really stoked to try it on a well lined up nuking day!


Friday, May 26th, 2017

What’s up NUB NATION!!! I hope everyone is doing well!! Today the tide got super high as the afternoon wore on & all the bay waves started lighting up one by one & I’m claiming it as the high water heaven in new jersey. I feel as though I could’ve been a little more prepared, but everything came together nicely & I finally scored Refracto Jones!!! Stoked!! Thanks for all the love guys!! – Love Ben

Out again with a couple of the boys. I’d done this course on an Easterly before and that was awesome (actually refer other video Army Bay to Orewa lol) so we tried running this course the other way and it turned out just as good ūüėÄ

Thanks to my boys Hans & Jeremy. Tidy little crew, another great no fuss paddle ūüôā

SUP Surfing Mentawai’s- Blue Planet Boat Trip Day 2

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

This is the video log of the second day of the 2017 Blue Planet Mentawai Islands SUP surfing trip on the Pelagic Surf Charters boat. Our international crew included team riders from Australia, Hawaii and Costa Rica. On day two we anchored at the Macaroni’s resort where we surfed mostly at the KFC’s break, which we had to ourselves. We got some great waves on the SUP’s, did some tow ins and introduced everyone to foiling with the Go Foils. After dinner the Bintangs kept flowing and the situation got out of hand when we made the “snorkel”, a Gath helmet with GoPro extension and a snorkel beer bong. Surprisingly most of us were up again early the next morning for a morning session at “Gaybeans”, so stay posted for the Day 3 video log.

Watch the day 1 video here:

Join the Blue Planet team on their Mentawai Boat trip with a series of daily logs of the trip held in April 2017. Participants on the trip are: Jared Reed (Blue Planet Australia distributor and trip organizer), Robert Stehlik (founder/ designer/ CEO), Pete Freeman (#1 Blue Planet retailer in Australia), John Bly and Steve Dewell (Videographers, Photographers, media), and International team riders:
Ty Judson, Nathan Cross, Skyla Rayner, Fabrice Beaux, Blair Hall.
Also on board was the Pelagic Surf Charters crew that took great care of us. Stay tuned to the blueplanetsurf youtube channel for more daily trip reports posted weekly, thanks for watching! Edit: Robert Stehlik, music: Marty Dread
