Click bait. Nothing to do with foiling. A hard crash yes, would helmet have helped, sure.

Re: Willem van der Meij claims highest jump in the Netherlands

Hydrofoils are great if you have the skill level, but I find them terrifying to jump. Look at the top boosting riders - they are very powered & hit big waves at ...
