Rider Level (think of this from a safety perspective)
Beginner locations are those with safe entry/exit locations, calm waters with a potential down wind exit location, or able to walk back to the entry point safely.
Intermediate locations are for riders who can comfortably stay up wind and have confidence in their riding ability.
Foil Pro locations have gnarly entry/exit locations and can have strong currents, rough seas and strong winds. Think rocks to clamber over, heavy short dumps.
