Epic Hydrofoil Stand Up Surfing on California’s Central Coast

Hydrofoil Surfing has opened up a lot of uncrowded surf locations with huge potential for the ultimate foil ride. Pismo & Oceano Beach has a long history of close out waves & mushy surf.

Ashley’s First Kiteboarding Lesson

When Jason asked me to meet him at Oceano Beach last week, I thought we would be getting some aerial footage or doing another shoot with the gimbal.
