When I watch that I can just sense the kite foil racing heritage. Im trying to survive for a few seconds backwinded before completing a 360, and not getting it yet. He does it like its nothing at all.

  I can only imagine the cost of a custom wing foil setup from Mikes Lab. But, they are the king of fast foils.

Wow some great videos in here!  I loved the Frenchie gal riding with the Dolphins.  That must have been so fun.   :)

I could watch this guy all day long.  So smooth.  I love that second jibe where he lets the wing fall behind his back an then guides it around the outside like its nothing. 

Cool looking board too.  Looks like a flat very squared off tail and very flat going forward and to the rails.

Id put money on it being a recycled kite race board. The pre-foiling era. When kite race boards had windsurf race fins. Gunnar wings with one. Damien in Jupiter foils with one.

That sounds right.  Check out this new one from Groove.  I think it looks great.  What's old is new again.  Tons of good stuff in this vid.

Gunnar does a good demo...  Check the size of the wing @ 3:13.

Moses 1100, he's been using that in every video. Likely the wing with the lowest stall speed on the market currently. The only competition being either of the newer Gong 2XL wings (Curve Pro / Veloce)

I really like that tack / 360 at 2:48, looks easier than just tacking from healside :)

$3300 just to get to a Tuttle connection and a long wait. No info about sizing on the website, would have to be extra to scale it up for larger folks (almost everybody). Those bits under the water are the place to splurge though...

Cute video.  I can imagine rodeo stars, living on a ranch as kids, doing all sorts of wild things on horses. You are pretty much unbreakable  ...or, at least fearless, at that age.

Nice Dwight, I have been curious about those Lift HA foils.  Which Axis foil does it ride most similar to?

Wow - in response to Robby's video
- that massive buildup of rental cars lining the road
- it's windy enough for Robby to restart as if kiteboarding
- he was cranking on the water, I wonder just how fast
- great footage from his view while catching air!
