Downwind Action with Dave Kalama

Dave is no slouch on a SUP and this video proves he rips on a foil too. Linking bumps and riding downwind, Dave packs away his paddle on his back once he is up and riding, and practically surfs the bumps into his destination.

Great to see how he connects bumps, the distance he coves when moving across to link them up and how he stashes the paddle when downwind foiling.

Does this look like Fun to you? Downwind paddle foiling is hard to get good at ... as you need to be able to paddle yourself up to a foil and then use the swells correctly to keep going. But according to some, once you master this, it is the most fun you can have foiling!! Wide open waters with no crowds..!
