Foiling a race course

Amazing video from Oz
Several key moments:
0:53 when everything goes quiet
2:51 blowing through the fleet
9:43 speed upwind relative to a Formula
11:42 foiling out (a bit of a naughty word, too) even good guys crash

btw, the rider in the video also just won the Aussie raceboard (longboard) nationals so he's got some skills. Kit is NP F4 foil with extended fuselage, 8.6 sail and old Gaastra formula board.

That reminds me, need to order another easy uphaul.

You can almost feel the smile on the guys face when he passes everyone at the beginning.

Impressive speed for what looks like less than 10 mph wind!
