Fun foil stuff (while I wait for the next session)

Things on foils. The kite wins (he he): https://youtu.be/nfBumbfPpnM

Kite looses on this one (unfairly since it's not on a foil), but the massive thing its going against is just amazing on foils. Looks like something from space blasting above the surface at impossible speeds. Today I'll bet Kai Lenny could give them a good race on a foilboard:

I am amazed at how efficient the kite becomes with the foils. I can see if you ultimately want to go fast adding a high aspect kite would propel you to a new level. I'm going plenty fast right now. Speed is not my goal.

Chad and I were out tonight in very very little wind. Readings were around 10. I went out first on a 12 and was getting overpowered. He came out on the 10 and was out just as long as I. So very cool, ripping along, carving in 3D space, dancing with two wings, and all completely quiet. Still blows my mind.

Thanks for pioneering this here in MN Barry. It is so cool.
