Old guys like me remember Logosz windsurf boards. Tony’s board designs pushed the envelope. A free thinker.

True that. Every time I saw Tony last spring he told me I should kite foil instead of screwing around with wings. I took it as more of a comment on my slow progress than wingfoiling in general. But maybe I was wrong

Tony probly knew he was going to be sitting on a ton of kite stock as everyone progresses to the wing

"Tony probably knew he was going to be sitting on a ton of kite stock as everyone progresses to the wing."

Good one!  That's pretty funny and maybe partially true.

There seems to be a lot of anecdotal evidence (and video evidence) that kiteboarders and windsurfers are moving in droves to winging.

You know who really deserves a beating?  Whoever made the garbage below.  I mean, how could they not know what a SUP foilboard should look like?  Probably worth noting that Tony was the first to use a handheld inflatable wing and the first to foil on one.  He's a creative guy.

My Slingshot Outwit was a good board for its time, both in design and construction. I have seen their Wizard boards slammed by breaching windsurf foilers and those boards survive just fine. Am looking forward to their next evolution of wing foil boards and will probably be a buyer......Rarely windsurf anymore but when I do it is on my 1992 Logosz 8'6 X 20" 80 liter Flip Tip. Great design for ebb tides on San Francisco Bay. Shares a lineage with Slingshot.

Rotten kid, making everyone look bad. Literally everyone.

Using a wing to hang glide down the face of Peahi--now everyone is going to want to do that.

Tony was probably trying to get me off wings to protect the budding sport. There's few things worse for image than some geezer flopping around.
