    Hi all. I Wakeboard and wakesurf But I’m turning 34 this this summer and my knees are starting to disagree with wakeboarding. Wakesurfing is fun but I don’t get the rush that I get from a big air on a wakeboard and landing out in the flats again a reason why my knees no longer agree with it. So I thought I’d give foiling a try this summer I do have some questions as I’m a bigger guy 300 pounds 6 foot 2. Is my Weight going to be a concern when I’m learning or will I just have to learn at a faster speed then 15 miles an hour?

    I would learn at 18 mph .the biggest problem is the lap BELT, oem models are not big enough cinch BELTS has different sizes and extentions .It will take a good summer to get confidence in jumping and increase the speed to 22 mph .If you are an air junky second summer should be able to start your backflips ,gainers and wake rolls ,good luck
