Clay sir you are correct.....that was sooooo smooth.  I like how he transitioned from one turn to the next, very pleasing to the eye.

Here is a great one from Seabreeze (Colas).  Most interesting are his comments about the rear wing.  I was wondering about this because the rear wings all apply downforce with reversed camber (e.g. upside down wing).  At speed the GoFoils all get super Bunking-Bronco esc and try to throw you unless you put ALL your weight on the front foot.  What Colas is suggesting is that the rear wing is providing the majority of this moment due probably from the leverage of the rear wing being 2 feet back and pushing DOWN 4X as much for every 2X increase in speed.  This may help with the bigger waves.

Colas said: "Note that Beryl weights 66kg and is on the biggest Gong foil wing (the 80cm wide one). But he uses a smaller kite stab (45cm) to still be manoeuverable, and fast. On the Gong foil (at least) the stab is what can limit the speed: you can go very fast even with big wings by using a faster stab, and Gong modular system provides a lot of stab sizes. This is the new modular "Allvator" Gong foil, alu mast and carbon+glass wings at 399 euros."

I'm so not dialed into the specs for foils. But the KeNalu Iwa775 is recommended for surf and sup so I went w/it. Very cool video. I liked when he got into that tripod stance and dragged a foot. Also what's the paddle in the air thing from the sup riders? Guessing it's a sign of respect.
Surfing, even on a sup, is beyond fun! It's also about meeting the challenge of the surf and walking away with a feeling of accomplishment that you were in harmony w/the natural energy of the sea. 9'11"-145 ltr     8'0"-127 ltr  8'1"-116 ltr     8'0"- 110 ltr   72" Methane & Riviera Camo

lol...I kinda like the drone pov..but then again I've only gotten a coupla clips from them! They can be intrusive for sure. I watched the vid again and came to the conclusion it's a "Paddle Tube" the sup riders created for the flying wonder boy! He tucks into it as he cruzes through!
