Hey, that's my buddy Jeremy Riggs! And the faces are kind of fuzzy but it looked like Alex Aguera in the Kalama/Go Foil tent. Maui represented. I had no idea they went to that. I've always wanted to do that event--one more reason to go to OZ.

Yes! Great to see Johnathan's face. I've been in touch with him via Whatsapp working on the Faux Drives. Is that his board with two drives? I haven't been following the developments lately but it seems like an interesting idea. I was expecting to see Adrian Roper too, but I didn't spot him. It's a small world in these sports. My wife was looking at one of the first issues of Standup Journal years ago and Diane said "Is there anyone doing this sport that isn't one of your friends?

No.. Jonathan is so light he doesnít need two.. The guy was much bigger and he was using both to get up foiling and then used the lower foil drive only once up.. Jonathan is using a foil drive on his new DW sup/foil board.. My vid didnít show the best of the event because I mostly filmed when quiet.. There was about 300 entered..
