“We have such a good flow out there together.  Lol, so many close calls but that is what makes the shot!”  – Abraham Shouse, Paddle Hawaii

Sup Surfing the Foil in the Shallows?

Zane and Abraham decided to take the Go-Foil for a run down past Launiupoko Peak at Lahaina at a spot called Toilet Bowls to get some photos.

The shot, although Zane makes it look easy, Abraham reports was a challenge due to the spot being SUPER shallow, definitely not ideal conditions for a Go-Foil.  Incredibly, Zane is riding the 2017 Starboard 6’9 Hypernut with only 69 liters in volume.

This is a feat truly for the sport’s Ultimate Waterman!
