Backwash Jellyfish Dodging

Updated: Aug 22, 2022



Wing foiling in the Nai Harn backwash jellyfish maze.


The westerly winds have started blowing, and Nai Harn is filling up with wind, and swell again, creating lots of backwash from the surrounding mountains' rocks. We have certainly foiled cleaner days' waves here before, that's for sure, but enjoyed trying to carve out some lines in this swash nonetheless.


Jellyfish & ocean debris served as additional obstacles intent on challenging the chop navigation further. When you're accelerating down the face of a confused wave, the last thing you want to see is a huge translucent Medusa head, staring up at the line of your advancing foil's descent. Thankfully, all those years of playing Pacman, were not in vain.
