Somebody didn't do the assigned reading before class. Lol (Someone who lives in a glass house is flinging rocks).

A shame the LoftSails are almost impossible to get in the States even though Monty Spindler is American. They make good stuff including some really good foil sails. Fortunately, Sailworks are making similar foil sails.

Seems to be foiling on glass at times. Lightest wind I've ever seen foiling. I think he could even have foiled at Galts the other day.....

Cold air helped - that was in March but you are correct, he's scooting along in not much. This winter should be interesting for us when temps get down into the 40s and we all get a bonus 10% boost.
yet to be completed article on the wiki for those not familiar with the effect: https://windsportatlanta.com/wiki/Density_Altitude

I'll add this to the pile. Note the Lasers not even thinking of healing over. How he doesn't backwind in the jibe amazes me

and

both above, afaik, are with a Loke foil race wing (875!). Gwen is using a Loke LK1 with a 1200 wing and a 7.6 Loftsail. Bart, I think, said he's 85kg (187 US kilos).

I guess they rank kitesurfing right up there with dog poop.

Thanks, Gwen. It's nice to see someone getting wind somewhere! I like the thumb thing. Biggrin
