I've been thinking about converting an old 5m foil kit into a wing.  I think a carbon paddle shaft with the right bridle system could work.  It would be very very light weight, but it might be impossible to get it stable enough to be useful.  Not enough spare workshop time to fiddle with this, and I guess I'll probably get rewarded since it looks like someone else will do the hard work of experimentation until it works.

That looks about the same size as my cheap trainer kite. Sam is a terrible person to use for inspiration, he does things on a foil that are not humanly possible.

It does look very challenging on what appears to be a small wingboard. However, it seems like it would be doable for us mortals on a DW SUPfoil board.
