Foils are nothing new. They’ve come and gone a few times over the years and they always get a lot of hype but turn out to not be the real thing. This time things might be different. The Go Foil team has done the necessary R & D to get it right. Their hydrofoils find the balance between performance and accessibility to the masses. They’re made for stand up paddle boards and can get beginners and experts up out of the water and cruising without a ton of learning. Unless you’ve done a bunch of serious repairs to your board, you’ll probably want to get a professional to do the install for the box that accepts the foil, but after that, you’re ready to hit the waves and have an experience like no other on the water. Check out the video to get stoked. The foils start around $1,700.
