I've seen one person foiling there. Open water is ok but there are rocks closer to shore that are not a problem for windsurfers but could be a problem for foiling.

IMHO, board volume is a big factor in chop - so you need a board with less volume when the wind picks up. I was at Ned's yesterday and started with a 5.7 on a 101L board - I weight 150 - and when the ...

I was itching to sail but the iWindsurf forecast called for light NW all day for Buzzardís Bay. But the NWS forecast said switching to SW 10 to 15 for the afternoon, which is a good forecast for Nedís ...
