Yet another day of 6 to 10knots wind forecast again today - dont sit around waiting for wind this summer get yourself a larger wing.

But what's great is that it also works for SUP foil (and wind foil, wingsurf and windsurf)! I haven't done...

What to do when there's no wind or waves and you have a foiling itch that needs to be scratched? Build a dock start ladder platform! That's exactly what we did after being inspired by the Dock Start Facebook group. It's built using a 4 way folding aluminium ladder, 3 decking planks (held together with some cross bracing underneath) and 2 bungee cords (to hold the decking to the ladder to stop it floating away). It works well but it's not the easiest way to learn to dock start that's for sure. The downsides are that you start in relatively shallow...
