(very poor) translation

Quote:

We learn this morning that a drama took place in the Brest company AFS
a different private order to oppose 2 staff members around the machine to cut the ham
In a fit of madness, one of the protagonists catching the mast like a Celtic ax
whirling it over the unfortunate man to end up planting the fuselage in the back of his colleague to the stabilizer.
Our reporters are on site!

Superfoilers in Sydney Harbor. Like having an F1 race through downtown Atlanta.

Awesome video, Chris.

That's not your daddy's kite: https://flysurfer.com/project/sonic2/

Yeah, pretty amazing. Foils have really broken barriers for both kites and sails.

When it warms up, still tempted to drag out a big sail, formula board and foil to see what happens.

Edit: In the meantime - Nicholas of Zeeko, himself

Re: More FOLI content

I would imagine the most difficult part would be getting the kite and foil launched in the first place. Once up in the air and moving apparent wind and a little more wind aloft may be what is keeping it going. Seems possible he may have launched earlier when wind was better and just managed to keep it going after the wind dropped and the water became glassy.

Or maybe he got the kite above the "dome effect". Yes 3

There is no off season.
