Another interesting video. Wonder if that is a self build, or a new product.

I think because NP/Adventure Sports distribute pretty much direct, iirc, from Brendan's presentation. But your general point is spot on. Easy way to compare something speedy like the Starboard to Slingshot and something in the middle like Fanatic.

Re: More FOLI content

I'd like to go to North Beach and rent one to try the foiling thing out before I spend a bunch of money
Anybody up for a road trip in June?

Slingshot's hover glide fwind1 is def a frontrunner when it comes time to buy though.

Langdon always seems up for a trip somewhere and we had a good time in St. Pete. In the meantime:

We need to know those too.
I called North Beach, they want $80/hr but it does include gear.

Re: More FOLI content

Lisa and I are going to be in Tarpon Springs for 2 weeks in June, 6/10 thru 6/24. If this lines up with any road trip, I might be interested in the foiling adventure at North Beach Windsurfing. Maybe we could get some kind of group lesson (and discount.) Tarpon Springs is about an hour north of Tierra Verde.

Re: More FOLI content

The latest: skate foiling. No getting wet. No worrying about wind. Doesn't require deep water.

btw, noticed (maybe on North Beach's site?) Slingshot now has M10/M6 adapter plugs so you don't have to drill out your board. Windance is having some sales this weekend, too, per email circular.

Re: More FOLI content

for the foil curious, Second wind maui has an LP all carbon foil for $1500. Well regarded and has built-in base plate which lessens the risk to "non-foil" boards. This is the foil (afaik) the Sailworks crew use. btw, Sailworks has the all carbon ASF-2 on sale as well. The French seem to dig it.

If budget is an issue, check out Manta and Zeeko. Zeeko is about as close to all carbon performance out there besides Starboard (but a tad cheaper).

Well. Seems like HE’d know better than to have his sail backwards like that Scratch one-s head
