Re: More Foil Content Part 2

This might be the ideal way to power foil boards. Just stand on top of the board. No need for ice skates.

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.

can you imagine sailing from Van Pugh to Aqualand at almost 38 mph? My V 2s is maybe, maybe 21 mph.

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

Perhaps we should ban fish as a hazard to navigation? Yes, a fish is responsible for the ending. Otherwise, serene foiling with killer jibes

Foiling out is a b*tch. Advantage of the windfoil is you aren't taking 5 other guys down with you. Lol

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

Looks like we need to up both our foil and drone games around here. I didn't need to see this on a 40 degree day. Sad

It's three very long continuous drone shots - the second two are a big upwinder followed by a sleigh ride.

Say what you want about Slingshot but I can only hope to be able to use mine to the level that these guys are.

Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to foil, he eats for a lifetime

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

I wouldn't tell any of your friends in PETA about this video or foiling might soon be banned.

Gilles, the stunt fish, was not harmed in the making of that video. He currently resides in NM in the same trailer park as Bambi's Mom.
