Foilboards are surfboard that have a hydrofoil that extend underneath the board to create lift and speed. The foilboard was originally invented by big wave surfer Mango Carafino, and other surfers such as Laird Hamilton help pioneer its use. 

Statistics show that the most common surf trauma injury is caused by a surfboard, is a laceration, and affects a surfers leg. Many of these injuries occur from surfboard fins, also known as skeg cuts.

Foilboards don't just have 1-3 fins like traditional surfboards, they have a long vertical and horizontal hydrofoil capable of doing exponentially more damage to a surfer. So what's the solution?

1. Proper Training: proper training helps surfers surf within their abilities, and conditions.
