Nice! I've only been able to try it one other time since and was cut short due to the approaching nightfall. Went out a week ago and after towing everyone else I decided to swap masts to the 24". No sooner than buckling my vest up the clouds that had been hanging on the horizon decided to flare up and blow us off the lake... :mad: super frustrating!

The thing I did notice last time was that a soft start seemed to help.

I've rode the past couple of weekends. The 24" mast is awesome. You will not go back. I have also been riding with the bigger foil. Getting close to surfing ropeless. I have made it 300 ft or so but haven't actually let go of the rope.

Nice!! I want to try it so bad...! I need to be more selfish next next time and take my turn first.

Soo surfing is most def possible by us amateurs. We had friends out this weekend so i didn't get to ride as much as I wanted, but I was able to ride rope less today. My longest ride was only 3 or 4 min, but definitely getting better every time out. Hope you guys are enjoying this thing as much as I am.

I'm so jealous right now. 3-4 minutes is a decent ride! I haven't made it ot on the lake again. Plans to go this weekend tanked due to, wind, work, and and and... I'm losing my mind because the conditions today were absolutely perfect.

It's all so I can have time off in a week for 5 days at the lake... I CAN'T WAIT!

Got to ride yesterday. Towing at 13mph.
Nice buddy, I'm glad you got your turn! Looks like you're on the 18" mast for that ride, do you have a 24"? I found the 24"to be so much more forgiving. That extra 6" goes a long ways to prevent breaching.

My recommendation to anyone is as soon add you can get up and ride with the 18" then its time to switch...
