BLUE PLANET EASY FOILER
Foil Boarding is the latest craze taking off around the world and once again Blue Planet is at the forefront of the development of the Sport. The Organisations founder, Robert Stehlik from Hawaii has been busy mastering the art and developing products along the way to help people get involved and progressing in this tricky but highly addictive new phenomenon.
With surf spots getting more and more crowded by the day, foiling has allowed watermen and waterwomen to find new territories to get their fix. Foils are designed to lift the board out of the water, eliminating all board related drag, allowing surfers to catch bumps and swells that normally could not be ridden by traditional board design.
From the last couple of years of research comes Blue Planets range of Foils and Foil Boards.
The Boards themselves are designed for flying and helping you fly further and smoother. They are smaller volume boards when compared with normal SUP's as when you get up and foiling, the smaller the board there easier it is to fly (and stay in control). This alone necessitates the need for you to be reasonably advanced in either surfing or SUPing before attempting to foil.....don't be mistaken, the good guys make it look easy, but until you get it, it can be a wild ride of huge highs and some painful lows.
The foils have been designed by Robert in conjunction with an aeronautical engineer and he has spent the last year testing and re-designing the foil to get the best possible performance. From the construction materials to the end shape and design, Robert has been able to produce a high quality product proven to improve your foiling experience.
The videos below have some more helpful information on the overall history of the foil development and exactly what is used to produce the foil along with the key features of the board and foil.
