How to successfully make a Surf Foil Beach Start
When you don’t have a boat to tow you in Wake Foiling and the waves are not sufficient to Surf or SUP Foil, A Surf Foil Beach Start can save the day. Nobody will doubt the cardio aspect / physical effort of a beach start that is very interesting to stay fit during times of flat!
You will find in this article a little guide to make a Surf Foil Beach Start.
Choosing the right spot
Ideally, the ideal spot is a beach like the one on Wesley Brito’s video with only sand and a water hole a few meters from the edge. This way you can keep the foil in enough water when you launch and jump on the board when you get to the water hole so you don’t risk the foil getting stuck or damaged by the bottom.
- What you don’t want on your spot: rocks, seaweed, bathers, ropes or anything else that makes the start dangerous for you, your equipment and others.
- Tip: you will fall several times so choose a good wetsuit or a spot with warm water.
