As an avid windsurfer since childhood I was excited to try foiling as soon as the first video clips hit YouTube. After moving to Moreton Bay, in Brisbane QLD, and having no nearby wave breaks (my previous passion), I was looking for a way to refresh my enjoyment of windsurfing. I tried slalom racing first; it was intoxicatingly thrilling, especially driving into the gybe at full speed with ten or more other sailors doing the exact same thing around you. The opportunities to race in the area were dwindling though. Luckily the foiling craze hit at the right time.
