Before starting, it is important to check the tide times. This step allows you to check the water level to prevent your mast from getting stuck in the sandbanks. In order to know the best conditions to practice sup foil in the ocean, it is also essential to take information on the height and period of a wave. The latter are used to generate the essential energy for the first tests. A 1 m wave with a period of 9 to 10 seconds is ideal. There is no point in going into hollow waves either. Slow undulations will be perfect to take the time to take off and enjoy the flight. Don’t hesitate to go through a sup foil school to get a good start in sup foil!
