Cool find, thanks for sharing.  That guy rips.  I was wondering how footage that good only has 350 views, then I found the short attention span edit:

I bet if they cut out the first 54 seconds of fluff and re-uploaded it would be widely viewed

Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.

Robert is not an older guy!

He is an older superman, just like Robby Naish and Alex Aguerra....

Very cool, that's Austin Kalama level stuff. I'd say though that foiling is mostly an old guy sport, at least as far as 40+ is an old guy. Most foilers are using $3-4k worth of stuff to foil and there's another $3K in the truck. Ad wings and that's another $3K.
