See what happens when you let the kids try?  Some solid boosts for early days.

Foil vs planeing hull. And it's Robby. That wing looks a bit more sophisticated than the one I tried.

Wow.  Standard waterstart in the straps to start.  No crawling.  Little no-float board.  That is the goal.

Ok here is the question: Who will be the first rider to do a forward loop with a wingfoil? And forever be in the record books much like Cesare Cantagalli did in windsurfing.

Haha- Yes, Tony should be the first to do a forward loop. He can get some more mileage out of that. Iím gonna call him.

This guy from Horue has worked out a clean port Vulcan.  Here come Spocks and Spock 540's.  On second thought, i am not sure how much fun back-winding a wing would be :).

That looks perfect for wingfoiling. Crap waves, lots of wind. That's the dream.
