Above and beyond what I was expecting for a beginner foil lesson. Jeff was nice enough to teach me about the equipment, how to set it up and even let me choose what size board I wanted to try. On top of that he has some of the nicest equipment on the market! Once we hit the water Jeff was very patient and informative. I never felt rushed and I was able to progress a lot. Highly recommend Jeff and all of his services!Los Angeles, CA
Had a great session foiling behind Jeff’s boat! Was really nice to sample the Konrad gear and try some new equipment. He had an array of options to help dial in the best opportunity to learn more about controlling the foil. Would go again any day!
The Konrad 1600 Surf wing is my go to for winging and wing foil surfing in 10-14 mph wind. It’s got a low stall speed and is easy to get on foil. Carving is really smooth and easy, stable and balanced. When it’s bigger/windier I use the GS1250 High aspect which turns and rides smoother overall, making it carry speed really well through turns. Not “twitchy” but stable. Like all HA wings, it needs water flow to get going, but once you’re up and riding- it’s fast, pumps well and surfs really well- loose but not scary, stable but not stiff. A solid system that’s easy to set up and break down.
