Tandem kite and SUP foiling: that's an effortless ride

Foils are taking over, and Alex Aguera is deeply committed to developing innovative outcomes for the sports of kiteboarding, windsurfing, and stand up paddleboarding (SUP).

Recently, we've seen Kai Lenny riding an SUP board equipped with a Go Foil. The hydro foiling system shaped by Aguera impressed the world with its near-zero drag force in downwind conditions.

But the show must go on, and the Floridian board shaper continues introducing modernism to water sports. On Memorial Day, and with very light winds, Alex picked up his kite foil and towed Kalia Aguera, who was on her SUP Go Foil.

The result is tandem kite and SUP foiling, a strange yet surprising blend between a wind sport and a wave sport. The footage demonstrates how effortless it is to catch a ride when in foil mode.

Alex Aguera lives in Haiku, Hawaii. He is the founder of Go Foil.
