This is Pushing the Limits - From COLAS living in exile in France:
----------------

The Gong shaper, Patrice Guenole', aka "L'Ours" (The Bear) was a bit worried by the direction taken by surf foiling, with micro boards that are hell to paddle if you are not young anymore. Gong is a brand aiming for volume markets, and he thought that these micro foiling boards were becoming a micro niche market: the amount of people able to realistically pump back to the lineup as an alternative to paddling will stay an ultra-small elite.

His solution: the foil cruiser: use an ultra-light 9' cruiser (an epoxy longboard with pulled in nose and tail). And since it does not pump well anyways with its length, just use the biggest foil wing possible (here the XXL 100cm wing). The result is something that glides in smooth arcs above the water, but can paddle back to the lineup effortlessly, and take off on non-breaking waves, as efficiently as a SUP foil.

As was said in another post, a foil carver rather than a foil pumper.

Beryl on a "short foil" and Patrice (100kg) on a "long foil", with moves making me think a lot of the "Silver surfer"..
