An hour of chat on foil design. Yes it's all about the Gong range, but that's not too say there is a lot of really interesting detail on foil design generally on shape and profile as well as how front foil, stab, and fuse length work together. Didn't really touch on mast length, which was the only missing topic. If you want to understand foils a bit better, this will be enlightening. Also a shame nobody asked why he's not designed anything that is 'proper' higher aspect, above 7...
