That guy was extremely lucky his leg (or both legs) wasn't severely cut (or worse) when he fell off the board and his legs got entangled in the foil.

Would it be possible to incorporate the Proteck rubber leading edge technology on the foils to lessen injury? For that matter, a very thin light coating of rubber on the mast? I have been using Proteck fins for years on my SUPs.

Kiting and a foil.  What could possibly go wrong with the best of both worlds?
