I know it’s not new but it’s new.

If it performs like a bi-wing airplane.
Maybe lots of lift, maneuverable and really low stall speeds.

Got the email from them yesterday. Interesting that they revisited this since their original biplane adapter for the Vini was a solution to the problem that bigger LA wings solved much better. The drag of the adapter and two sets of wing tip vortices meant that their HA XXLW even at 30% less area performed just as well as a biplane setup of an XLW and LW (1300 vs about 1700cm2). Earlier this year, they finally came out with a LA big XXLW at 1600cm-ish that if they'd done originally, I might still own my Horue set up.

Agree with more downhaul, this is getting enough lift but still retaining a lot of maneuverability. The wings aren't that big: the biggest combo is only 1200cm2

Sometimes when you catapult, you have, it seems, all the time in the world

The Prince of Speed. Note how small his front wing is at the end of the video.

Not sure how it was possible but their skills have improved a notch. Their maneuvers have so much flow now

The standard for foiling keeps rising. Enrico Marotti drops off the foil at the first jibe mark to avoid a collision and then comes charging back.

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

Interesting vid from F4.

So far, what I've gotten (still working through as it's pretty long) Around the race course, foils are equaling fins down to about the pros using 6.8s. Shok 720 is the "big wing" now, but 620 is the normal big wing. Jordy Vonk's top speeds are around 32.8 kts around the race course (real world conditions with swell, etc) but more impressive are his 10s speeds around 31.5.

Who needs wind? I'd like to try this. Who wants to give me a pull.

He has blown apart windsurf racing in 2 years. This is as big a change as when short boards first appeared on the scene in the early 80s.
