The biggest attraction of windfoiling to me is the light air potential...smaller sail size...etc...however, where I live a number of my attempts have been foiled by kelp...eel grass...& floating debris...

It is fun...kind of an ethereal feeling floating along above the chop at planing speed...





I have the smaller Horue Lightwind front wing now...a better fit for me...as, the Extreme Lightwind wing was providing too much lift in the higher winds that most of my sessions have been in thus far...so, I'm looking forward to more TOW this summer with windfoiling...and, SUPsurf foiling with the Kai GoFoil for that matter...

Love the dude in the skippers cap at 1:45. 

Pretty impressive light wind speed and capability.  This might get me back into windsurfing.  Especially if they use tuttle boxes.  I have a few boards ready to go.

Unfortunately they don't use the Tuttle boxes from the old days. They use DEEP Tuttle boxes. Only formula race boards come with deep Tuttle.

There are a bunch of transitions and a few aerials that guys are doing on the foil.  Some of the stuff in the air looks awkward but the surface stuff can look pretty clean.

Great videos. At least the guy had to come off plane to tack.
