[quote="gregnw44"]This post is not regarding "how light can the wind be to foil"... but more data on "what kinda gear can you foil" with.

Yep..foiling has become a game changer.

I believe one of the earlier windsurfing magazines had a picture of Mike Waltz or Matt Schweitzer or somebody actually getting a door to plane.

I've had to do quite a few repairs for delaminations on those boards. Watch out.
