Hydrofoil SUP Surfing in France

Riding a wave with your board suspended a few feet above the water sounds like something from a futuristic surf movie. However, that vision has become a reality thanks to the almighty hydrofoil–an underwater wing that lifts boards out of the water. While surf foils have actually been around for a while, it is still fascinating to watch them in action. Case and point, this latest edit from a paddler performing the high-flying surf act on the west coast of France.
