This kid has been blowing my mind at the Event Site.  Exceptional speed going into the most graceful looking weightless moves. 

Foiler or not, you can't help but appreciate this.

He's amazing. A few days ago he cut two circles around me while I was mowing across and then came extremely close to me while I was in the middle of a jibe. I was irritated at first but then I realized he has better control foiling than I do walking. I'm just another stationary object. And it was fun to experience.

Perhaps also a bit of a compliment. I don't think he would have done that back in the days when I was flailing unpredictably.
