Re: Strong like bull

These people aren't as gifted as me when it comes to breaking things. The easy way to break a foil would be to use the mast (which is perpendicular to the wing) to break the joint between the wing and the mast. The mast gives lots of leverage on the joint. Breaking it should be much easier than what they are trying to do.

Another easy way to break something would be to use the foil end of the mast to break the box holding it to the board. Just apply some sideways pressure and the mast box (nee finbox) should pop right out. Has anyone ever done that?

Finally, not really breaking something, but just drag the foil along the ground in shallow water and you scratch it all up. And if you do it right, coming in at high speed you can probably break something on the person riding the foil/board contraption and he or she will probably feel worse than if they just broke their foil.

There is no off season.

Those things are actually pretty well built. How's this for leaning out on the foil? At 1:38

Scratch my wing, though, and we're going to have fisticuffs.
