We do love to surf here in Australia and it is something that we have done for countless years. It is a fantastic feeling getting out there into the ocean and then standing up on your board to ride the waves. If you are a seasoned surfer then using a standard board and traditional fin at the bottom of your board may have been okay for a number of years now but it would be nice to be able to make the whole surfing experience a little bit more exciting than it currently is. This is when foil surfing becomes a reality and it is growing in popularity every day all across this great continent of ours.
Many people are now placing a futuristic motor foil on their boards and it is making surfing so much more exciting to do. The purpose of this attachment is to lift your board out of the water above the surface and so not only do you get to ride the waves better but you move across the water at great speed. If this is all very new to you and you would like to find out more, then the following are just some of the reasons why every Australian needs to try foil surfing at least once in their life.
- It provides new manoeuvres – There are only so many manoeuvres that you can do on a standard surfboard but when you add a foil then things become a lot more exciting. It opens up a world of many different manoeuvres that you never thought possible before now because your board is above the surface of the ocean, it allows you to do many more things that would not be impossible on your traditional surfboard.
- You get that flying feeling – We all remember that feeling when we jumped on our trampoline when we were young and it felt like we were flying above the ground. When you fit a motor foil to your surfboard, it will elevate immediately and so this gives you the feeling of taking off or flying. It also gives you a better idea of what is going on around you and while only some of us could dream about flying on a magic carpet like Aladdin, this actually makes it a reality.
- It is much more stable – it can be difficult to protect the movement of the waves on a standard surfboard and so this makes it a little bit more challenging to keep your stability. Fitting a foil to your board, however, allows you to have a more stable ride and gives you a much better perspective when riding across the waves.
Now that you have learned a little bit more about what a motor foil can do for your surfing experience, maybe it’s time that you looked into it a little bit more. It will certainly increase your level of excitement and make surfing something that you want to do more every single day.
