Re: More Foil Content Part 2

I reckon one of the chase boat's jobs is to fend off gawkers and goofballs. But I guess you gotta give the 40 knot foiler a pass out of respect. What are the AC boats doing for speed? 50?

If the kiter had a few percent of the AC boats budget for development, he could probably come up with a gear combo to beat him.

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

If you go powerbox (e.g. NP Glide with Powerbox adapter), do yourself a favor and use a tether. This guy admits all was good until he jumped but all the same, a tether kept this from turning into a disaster.

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

Looks like NeilPryde is getting serious about their alu windfoils finally. New Flight series features a new 1000cm2 wing. The Glide series has a bunch of higher aspect wings.

I'd love to be Gwen's camera salesperson - ticket to printing money. Biggrin Another nice video that just gives me West Point vibes - flat water and 10-15 mph winds.

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

It's okay to touch in a jibe. Even the pros do it.
