if he's the guy i think he is, nice guy who helped me out like 25 years ago when i was surfing (flailing) at ri deepest of holy places in a strong west (he was ws'ing)--i had driven an hour and wasnt going to not surf

sent me to a point just east of there, which handles west nicely, where i had a great sess

no surfline back then

guy's always been an early adopter--ws, kiting, surfing susing etc

now foiling, apparently

I stopped foiling many years ago.  Too messy.  Now I just use tupperware containers and I rarely have a problem.

What? Oh... er... Nevermind.  ;)

Same here, although I find them unstable in choppy conditions.

I too dislike aluminum foils. I find that plain old glass works just fine.
It's not overhead to me!

Except for in your hat, for chemtrails. Or in your underwear--anal probe, I guess, though I'm not sure if it's preventative or supplying a radar target.
