Saw what looked like a teenager yesterday repeatedly jumping his winged foil about 20 feet up and landing most of them....looks like the new derivative of surfing, windsurfing, kiting, foiling

AA used 9.4 sail in the PWA races and is leading foil and slalom as well. In a Miami race this year, AA used 7.8 in winds gusting over 25, I was overpowered on 5.6. Being from Florida, my most used ...
