James Casey SUP Foils 120km

James Casey probably just completed the longest recorded downwind SUP foil.

From James,

“Last Sunday I foiled from Wollongong up the coast to Sydney [Australia] with a 20-25 knot southerly front and up to 6m of south swell. I covered over 120km while Downwind SUP Foiling and had one fall at Point Potter, ‘the rodeo ring’ just south of Botany Bay.
As far as I know it’s the furthest anyone has gone downwind on a SUP foil in one day. It was fun to push my limits and do something that I had planned in a brain storm session with Dad. He would’ve loved it out there that day but I know he was out there looking out for me.
Footage is a combination of training runs and the actual run @goproanz footage put together by the team @simpson.cinema.
I used a 6’0 x 24 AVIATOR by @sunova_foil | @casey.aus with the P180 and 32.5″ mast from @gofoil and fueled up using @trueprotein cluster dextrin in my water pack and @bluedinosaurbars as solid food.
I had a support vessel trail me (@djenriquefoiler) for the middle third of the run, land support follow me the entire way (@lani.m.casey, @elizabethedmonds40) an EPIRB, lifejacket, mobile phone using the marine rescue app, flare, leg rope and radio all with me, so feel I had my safety bases covered. I also had family and friends at the finish too which was awesome, looking forward to pushing my limit further soon.”

Well done James and can’t wait to see what you get up to next!
