Foiling & gear - Central/ S America

Hello fellow foilers
Im currently living in french polynesia for a while with the family
The winging is amazing - although im still feeling like a kook with the wing !
We are riding unifoils ( 210 down to 150) and a few different wing boards
Before we head back to our home base we are hoping to stop off in either costa rica or columbia or anywhere in south / central america really for a few months of wave devotion … which im missing

2 questions it would be great to get input on

  • has anybody experience of buying foil gear in central / south america ? I can take the unifoils but the boards i have are dedicated wingboards and id want some small sup and prone boards instead . Does anyone know if you can get them locally or would i need to ship something in ?

  • any location recommendations? I have young kids ( who are way better than me at foiling btw!) So im wondering about mellow beach breaks … its hard to assess the decent small wave foiling spots that would get us going

Thanks so much for any thoughts or experience
All the best and …happy foiling

i can put you in contact with a guy in brazil ? maybe a bit too far south ?

Thanks Clifford
We are sticking to spanish speaking countries for now as the kids and i are trying to learn spanish
Thanks for the offer of the intro and one day Brazil !
All the best

I’m living in Venezuela, here absolutely nothing available, we import everything from florida

I guess in CR there must be gear as many Americans go there. Ask Eric himself he has been lots to nosara

as for foil waves, this continent as well as Venezuela are blessed.
any more advice, shoot
