Over the past few seasons we've seen an increase in what at first can seem somewhat bizarre ... riders around the world floating across the water, and having a blast doing it. Say what you want about the wake foil, the truth of the matter is it's really, really fun because of how different it feels. And the best part is it works behind EVERY type of boat. From a PWC to a bow-rider runabout to your uncle Ronnie's sparkly "plum" bass boat … if she's got a motor, she'll do the trick. Why? Because the excitement of the foil doesn't come from launching off a wave or wake, it comes from the floating sensation you experience at speeds as low as 5-8 mph. It's a whole new balance point and stance unlike anything else behind a boat – keeping you constantly focused, engaged, and most important, stoked. All jokes aside, we know once you try it, it will have you and your crew geeking out all summer as you try to master watersports' latest challenge. To see what kind of fun we could have we met up with Slingshot team rider Louis Floyd and a local ripper named Bennett O'Connor. And we pulled them with a pontoon boat.
