Has anyone experimented with a pole to push into swell where its shallow and small waves?
I know fisherman on kayaks and SUPS often use poles to navigate
….thinking of a high jump pole and the way it bends and then springs the jumper higher—- could work if a pole bends and loads up to push the foiler forward?
could also be hollow/foam filled to stay floating just outside the lineup if the rider wants to drop it?
obviously not good for crowds but could open up some shallow wave riding … and may be easier than a paddle?
