Miami foil

Miami Kiteboarding to foil boarding

Miami Has the new spot for the next step in kiteboarding. That is kitefoiling or foil boarding. or just foiling .
free style:


It seems that the whole kiting world suddenly got very interested in hydrofoils the past few years. Foilboards have actually been around for some years, first sit-down ones for skiing behind a boat, and then big wave surfers developed the stand up version from that. Commercially available foilboards for kiteboarding have been available since 2006. So what is all the hype about, and why now?

Imagine being able to kiteboard above the water. Gently floating over the chop in silence. Silence so unheard of that you can even hear the white water breaking next to you while you glide along at speed.

Now imagine being able to go upwind like a racing yacht. My average sessions at Kitebeach (in Cape Town) takes me from where Seli the wreck used to be upwind to Sunset beach, and then back again. If it was not fast and easy I would definitely not be doing it often.

Add to that the fact that when the wind is light, you are still powered up enough to go wherever you want to, as fast as you dare to go, and there will be no one else on the water (except maybe some SUPs and surfers). On light wind days, a gentle cruise on a yacht looks so inviting with flat calm seas, and only a gentle breeze. With a foilboard, you can now go kiting on these lovely days.

Foil Boarding

So how did it all start? From what I can gather, there were early pioneers of hydrofoils behind boats in the 1960s already. Mike Murphy played a prominent role in the development back then (WWW.NEXTFOILS.COM/READ-THIS/). The stand up variety never took off so to speak, but sit down hydrofoils became rather popular in the 1990s. Then big wave surfers in Hawaii took these sit-down hydrofoils, changed it back so that they can stand on it and started surfing some very big waves. Soon after that, someone must have tried it with a kite and the sport was born. These early foils had boots connecting the board to your feet. Obviously with kiteboarding still new (and dangerous), adding a metal sword to the bottom of your board and binding yourself onto it was more extreme for most people to try so the hydrofoil side of things did not become widespread just yet.

Soon after this, Carafino was launched which was the first hydrofoil dedicated for use with a kite. It moved to carbon fiber instead of aluminium, and you only required straps for these instead of bindings. The sport did not explode, but slowly gathered more riders who enjoyed the uniqueness of foilboarding.

As with most advanced technologies around sailing, the French were the next to really develop the sport. They advanced the most difficult part of it: the speed. And with increased speed you also need improved handling. They developed the foilboard from something that could maybe reach 18 knots, to something that goes around a course faster than any kite race board, going multiple times faster than the wind speed and definitely faster than most sailing yachts. Finally the Americans woke up to this new sport and as you can see in these videos, they are really embracing it:

Uterque enim summo bono fruitur, id est voluptate. Omnis enim est natura diligens sui. Eorum enim est haec querela, qui sibi cari sunt seseque diligunt. Sed tamen intellego quid velit.


Mene ergo et Triarium dignos existimas, apud quos turpiter loquare? Itaque vides, quo modo loquantur, nova verba fingunt, deserunt usitata. Peccata paria. Quae duo sunt, unum facit. Atqui iste locus est, Piso, tibi etiam atque etiam confirmandus, inquam; Quam nemo umquam voluptatem appellavit, appellat; Itaque sensibus rationem adiunxit et ratione effecta sensus non reliquit. An potest cupiditas finiri?

Iam contemni non poteris. Ut alios omittam, hunc appello, quem ille unum secutus est. Quis est, qui non oderit libidinosam, protervam adolescentiam? Quod totum contra est. At multis malis affectus. Quod autem satis est, eo quicquid accessit, nimium est;

Quamquam in hac divisione rem ipsam prorsus probo,
elegantiam desidero.

Tam enim diligenter, etiam si minus vere nam nondum id quidem audeo dicere -, sed tamen accurate non modo fundatam, verum etiam exstructam disciplinam non est facile perdiscere.
