"We've got all kinds of reef around here we can play with..."

When two-time World Champ gets to talking about something, it's hard not to share his enthusiasm. In Tim Bonython's latest clip, he and Matt Grainger describe the surreal feeling that foiling is giving them as they take to their local unused, unsurfed reefs around their locals. Foiling has been the butt of some criticism since they've become a more regular feature of line-ups on Australian coasts, but used like this, out away from other surfers and defined line-ups, you can really see the greater stoke of it all.

“The reward is amazing," says TC in the above video. "You get this kind of glide that’s uninterrupted and it’s tapping the source of nature which is so abundant and beautiful and powerful, and all of a sudden you’re gliding on top of it, and it’s just taking you for this what feels effortless ride… and you’re not using anything else other than this foil, that’s just underneath the surface, fascinating to me because I’ve been riding waves all my life.”
