WWF (Windsurf wave Foiling) “What I Ride”

Casey’s Blog:

I have had sooo many Questions on the topic of WWF lately its crazy.  so I thought I would do some posts talking about this awesome new sport.  First up is the gear I am currently riding.  If anyone knows anything about me,  they know I only ride the highest quality and performing gear available on this planet. Its sort of a obsessive passion of mine.   OK so here is my Windsurf Wave Foiling kit (WWF).

Board:   6′ x 31″ 112L  (14LB) Strapless Reef Warrior Foil Board (aka”TOP GUN”), I will get into more with my foil boards in another post. but this baby is the “Pro” version, mostly for the very very experienced foiler.  This is the “Porsche” of Foil Boards.  For the majority the 7′ version of this board is perfect and is my recommendation to all levels.

Foil:    Go Foil these foils rock, and are the best for WWF and any other kind of wave foiling. (sup,kite,downwind,ect)  I have tried a few other brands and they work pretty good as surf foils, but not so good for WWF.   That’s what so unique about these foils is the range of use, from 6 knots to 25,  from flat water, to overhead waves with or with out a sail they absolutely rip, but yet are very easy to ride. The Iwa/Maliko200 wing kit is the best choice for most. I just got my hands on the 29.5″ mast and so far I am really liking it.

Sail: Naish Lift (Check out) is the best foil sail.  See Review here .  Just got the new 3.7 , its now my new fav size.

Mast: Naish 370 & 400 RDM 100% carbon. hey I only use the best.😉

Boom: Chinook RDG Carbon (Click Here) I also use the Goya RDG Carbon. both booms are super light weight and have the skinny grip, which makes for less arm fatigue and more fun.

Turning the Page, 2017 Session Recap

Casey’s Blog:

Well 2017 is going down as “Awesome”.   It was Pretty much a repeat of 2016 except supercharged.  Its was another year were Dareef was Liquid all year, that made  accomplishing my goal of 100 days in the waves easy, and now that I have found my niche in the Foiling game , with “Surf foiling” its going to be sooo easy to get 100days every year.

Now that I am looking back at the last 12 months it was a incredible year of so many first. Building 2 Special Boards (Red Barron, Mystery Machine) that really broke the boundaries of what is possible was awesome by itself.  Then to be truly at the for front of an emerging sport with Surf & Surf wind foiling is such a addicting rush.  I will never forget the luck of catching and experiencing some of the best hurricane surf in Hatteras ever!  Last but not lest,  getting the chance to live on one of the best fresh water surf spots in the world for 100+ sessions, Its hard to imagine a better life.  But hey! ya never know, Bring on 2018 and Da stats.!
