A hydrofoil board is basically a surfboard with a hydrofoil that extends below the board into the water. This design causes the board to leave the surface of the water at various speeds. Laird Hamilton, a prominent figure in the invention of big wave tow-in surfing, later discovered the foilboard's capability to harness swell energy with the use of a jet ski, pulling the rider into a wave. Now, the GoFoil SUP brings this invention to paddle boarding. Some compare this experience to "taking flight", as the board lifts from the water between 4-8mph, depending on wave push, positive angle and rider weight.
