Jeff Clark’s Foil Science technology and incredible stoke

Brian Erickson spent a week up north following Jeff Clark around filming. What he discovered is not only is Clark the original pioneer of Mavericks surf spot, a dangerous point break out of Half Moon Bay, but today Clark is still elevating the world of surf to the next level through the hydrofoil surf revolution.

Jeff Clark’s Foil Science hydrofoil technology, invented by himself and Laird Hamilton, is at the forefront of surf’s scope of influence.  This sport really taking off.

Erickson reports hydrofoiling is , “Really interesting to watch and after being in Hawaii for the last month, I was surprised how many people are foiling there also.”

On a foil board, one can surf waves that would never be accessible to ride even an stand up paddleboard.

This video also highlights Jeff trying out his new Surftech model, The Claw. He’s says it works in two foot surf to big as you want to go.

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at editor@standupjournal.com . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
