Re: Foil plans?

from what I understand, unless your REALLY REALLY GOOD. Hand shaped foils just won't work, they'll be uneaven and make it very difficult to ride.

"Big Kiteloops always end in an enema."

- that's funny. Why you doing it than? Just wait and it will end up in much bigger than enema...Like breaking both tibia which we witnessed a few weeks ago.
