Foil Drive Podcast | Ep 02 | Dominic Hoskyns

Dom was actually our first customer back when we kicked things off in 2021. And he's not just a blip on the radar – he's become part and parcel of the whole Foil Drive story. The guy's always up for a challenge, pushing the envelope on what you can do with a foil, a board, and some innovation. Oh, and if you're hanging out on Facebook, swing by the Foil Drive Owners Group to shoot the breeze with Dom: Link.

Flash forward to October 2022, and we had the epic pleasure of hosting Dom in sunny Australia for a few days. Big shoutout to him for being a driving force in the worldwide community of Foil Drivers. And hey, if you're up for some rad content – from Foil Drive escapades to everything rad about prone, surf, SUP, wing, and downwind foiling – his channel is an absolute goldmine.
