I got out after work Friday with windfoil/wing friends Mark/Chris.  It was typical winter conditions here off Victoria BC waterfront in Strait of Juan de Fuca.  25-35 kn westerly, big wind swell, with a bonus sail past send-off for HMCS Calgary frigate as they are heading out on 6 month tour. Mark is the windsurf rig, I'm the winger on red/black wing, Chris is winger on blue wing. Mark's dad is flying a Nanchang (CJ-6 trainer) with his "wing" buddies and the one deploying smoke!

Funny - A video about speed without a single reference to distance over time WHICH IS SPEED!

Were they going 25 mph, 30 mph, 35 mph?  People want to know.

Quick response from GoFoil: 28, 29.5 , and 33.44 mph so far with a ratified speed sailing watch called the Locosys Gw60

Yea, but can those speed wingers compete with this!  You don't know what fun is until you find yourself in one or more of these predicaments.

With new TKR-80 wing

Any sightings of the TKR-80 wing?  I suspect its too small for anything I want to do but I was wondering.

PS:  DW for you to start hitting 30 mph you're going to need some 35 to 40 mph winds.  Jeff Clark hit 24 mph the other day in our Harbor in Half Moon Bay.  But it was blowing 35 mph+ and he was on an 8 foot board.  There might be something to the stability of a longer board at speed.  I can't get over 20 mph when winging but I am still a mere amateur. 

PSS: Those kitesurfing crashes were so terrible I had to stop watching

Those kite crashes reminded me of why I never got into kitting.

Here's the first I've seen of a pro surfing without luffing, using the wing the way I've seen windsurfers navigate sections:

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