Is that an Ozone foil board?

Clay, what harness are they using?

probably this or newer version?
https://www.mackiteboarding.com/ozone-connect-v1-wing-wingfoiling-harness/

I have this harness and got 1st session on it yesterday. It is really nice and minimal. It brought to my attention the fact that mobility especially around my waist makes everything go better. I have been winging an old dakine thermoform and while comfy hooked in, it was cumbersome and limited my waist mobility while doing the whole knee start dance. The Connect is easy to slide the whole harness out of the way to get on board and then slide it to the front when needed. I didn't even notice it was there when I wasn't using it. Highly recommend.

Uncertain what harness, I would guess the same.

Clay - Your video and Oration were spot on.  You may have missed the Windsurfing Boom in the late 80's and early 90's. 

The Winging Craze is round 2 of celebration time.  Back then you would show up on some random beach in middle of nowhere.  Wind was blowing and people would come out of the woodwork like geese descending on a pond in the fall.  Suddenly there were 20 brightly colored sails.  Places like Kalmus Beach (MA) and the Outer Banks (NC), Canadian Hole (NC), Corpus Christ (TX), The Gorge (OR), Crissy Field (CA), Rio Vista (CA), Kanaha or Hookipa (HI). . . . . The vibe was typically JUBILANT and FRIENDLY.

No stink eye.  No negativity.  Just pure STOKE.  People literally bouncing up and down they were so fired up.   

The places with wind have not changed.  I used to say there were only 30 windsurfers in the world and I used to run into most of them at these spots.  I remember meeting a kid named Jake an instructor at Cabarete in the Dominican Republic.  Then he just showed up at Kalmus beach 2 years later, he apparently grew up in Massachusetts.  Then 2 years later he shows up in the lineup at Hookipa.  He probably thought I was the one showing up in "random" locations.

I agree that  salty Ft. Point shortboarders compared to wingfoilers feels like a nice day of stoke but I have been visiting wind spots for 20 years and there are plenty of assholes there too. It reminds me of kiting in the early days. Everyone was overwhelmed with stoke and got along. That didn't stay like that at all the places. Go to the Sherman Island kite launch on any given saturday and you will see a stressed out, over crowded jambhole sprinkled with assholes and selfish behavior. There are definitely a whole bunch of great people too. Winging is really special because of its loose requirements for launching. Kiters have many more requirements to safely launch and therefore are crowded into the good spots.  And with crowds comes the short boarder, "its my turn" mentality. Waves are a precious resource. Winging can be done in all kinds of conditions and is plentiful. I like your video with great commentary. Thanks for putting time into your content that you post.

Wind lightened up so I came in and filmed Mickey:

Ripping!!! I think I know where that buttery side-off locale might be. 980/380 90cm mast crazy short? I love how breaching is no longer a thing to stress about! I bet you guys wooed over to the wing, a few lowly surfers that day. Thanks for posting.

While it's hard to say for sure because of the distance...that front wing looks more like a PNG series wing. My guess is the 910...but I agree with the 380 (420) tail by the looks of the tips, and the CS fuse. Clay...any idea of Mickey's setup?
Me: 6'1"/185...5'1" Kings Foil Board...5'7" Kings Foil Board...9'6" Bob Pearson "Laird Noserider"...14' Lahui Kai "Manta"...8'0" WaveStorm if/when the proning urges still hit.
