That is really nice looking foil and bags, did you have any more riding videos?

Thanks

Today was the first lesson. The result is still far from being can be shared with others. ))

PS without bags is likely to damage the foil and board during transport

... When the foil lying on the beach during a timeout, it is useful to protect the basic elements: 8)

If you got a reasonably big car (like all ex windsurfers has), you often put the foil "complete" in the car, sideways.

But, especially if you ride strapless, you can also put it upside down on the floor, thus it takes up ZERO space !

And all your kites and surfboards and TT's and other boards, and kites, can fit in just as they used to, and you dont need covers :thumb:

You dont need covers, as the foil is "safe" up at the ceiling, so it wont get "hurt", nor damage other boards or kites :naughty:

Here, some of the other boards are moved out, so you can see exactly why it does not take up any space at all, and when you ride daily, mounting/dismounting a foil is a thing you want to avoid of course :naughty:

Just another way of dealing with the hydrofoil transportation :rollgrin:
