It's not always about winning. Sometimes, it's just about finishing. Biggrin

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

Remember when so many short boarders scorned the lowly tack? Now, it has become a thing of grace, beauty and speed in the IQFoil class

Balz on the latest trends in foilstyling. Interesting bits about set up towards the end.

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

That was a good video.
I am continually amazed by what things Balz can do.
I like the idea of getting the mast closer to the footstraps.
And I definitely need to work on using smaller sails in lower winds instead of rigging the 8.2m

There is definitely diminishing returns for using the big sails unless you are doing the upwind/downwind thing...or desperation sessions in 7-8 mph winds

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

When people as me if I'm interested in an efoil. Naw, fam, I'm good on my sail. Lol (Yeah, I know I barely go half this fast)

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

No guts, no glory. Going fast on a foil ain't easy and not for the timid
