The Year of the “Surf Foil”, 2018 Session recap

Foil Sunset

Caseys Blog:

2018 was the year of two tales, Its was the worst surfing & wind year that I can ever remember, just horrible. We had a long cold winter that seemed to go on forever, then a crazy hot and calm summer. it made for not many days of action. Now on the other side of the coin with the advent of Surf Foiling, thru sail, paddle, or kite. this year turned out to be soo much fun on soo many days. The days were you wouldn’t even have thought about getting a session in, turned out to be the most fun you can ever have. I think 2018 is the year that we turn the page, Thanks to Surf Foiling even on the worst years you still can have 100 days of an insane amount of fun. Its the new Norm now. Life is good.

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.!
