The day I became addicted to hydrofoils was the day I saw a video featuring a Horue foil on youtube. After seeing the effortless glide of the foil through the water, I knew I had to have one. What stopped me from foiling that summer? One word: COST. Back in high school, I had no shot of buying a $2,000 set up, and frankly, even if I had the money, it was still too expensive. From that point on I began to make my own. Day by day, I tweaked my first design until I was able to fly across my lake nearly three feet above the water. I realized the vast scope of opportunities a foil could provide after that first ride.
Two years and many adjustments later, I now have a strong, hydrodynamic and stable foil that preforms above and beyond my expectations. Leaving the lake and the ski rope behind, I began foiling with kites and was amazed by how I could glide over the water so smoothly, effortlessly and silently. I cannot put into words how your sense of kiteboarding will be shook to its core after your first flight on a foil.
After riding my own foil and board for almost an entire year, I felt a duty to pass on the fun and savings to others. I wish my own gear was around two years ago because then I would have discovered my passion for foiling sooner. I always think to myself: I need to be making something I would want to buy. And so here I am, making foils to pass along the fun at a price that feels right.
