Tomek uses a wax by now. He admits that foil feeling is more direct without any pad.
We will be testing various options of the non-slip over next winter.
He uses Bracuru Race. This is a new design dedicated for racing.
Price - 930€ including straps, bag and brand new 35cm long double rails.
Available only in Europe from March 2015.
Bear in mind this is a custom made thing made in very small quantities. On demand only.
If anybody plan to buy it let me know in advance please.

Tomek Janiak and myself were blown away by the double concave results.
This is a must for any racer and a highly recommended for anybody else.
The double concave with a connection of a wider nose and a slightly increased scoop seriously minimises diving into the water. Really seriously! I did not expect such a visible change.
More than happy
Now I know that a shape of hydrofoil board cannot be ignored. So far I would say: connect a foil to anything and you can fly. Now I would say: with a proper board you will fly with dry hairs
BTW: a video from Soma Bay where Tomek was coaching another Tomek:
Polish Championship completed last weekend.
Congratulations to the winners:
1st - Tomek Janiak,
2nd - Maks Zakowski
3rd - Tomek Glazik
Most of you know first two names. Worth to memorize Glazik name - 15 years old kid!
It's a pitty Blaszko did not compete. He rides Bracuru Boards too - as his father Andrew - a coach of the Polish Racing Team.
How not to be happy?
