Intro to SUP Foiling 

 Foil 1.0 

Learning to foil SUP in either the waves or in downwind conditions takes serious commitment and has its own new set of techniques and safety considerations.  Dan has created a system that is sure to get you up and flying in no time.  Starting behind a boat or personal watercraft using tested and high-quality gear along with Dan's personal instruction gives each participant the maximum chance of learning to foil on the first session.  Using larger foils and slow speeds each participant gets a chance to master the basics of keeping the board "on foil".  This clinic will get more granular in the fine points of establishing a plane on foil, pitch control, roll center stabilization, and safe falling techniques.  By the end of the lesson, participants should be ready to start learning on their own or choose to take foil 2.0
