do you think a hydrofoil board could be faster ?

never ever. Sailrocket has shown the way to go. It works quite opposite to a foilboard. The Sailrocket-foil pulls the vessel INTO the water. So the counter-acting forces are perfectly in line.

What if a kiter would be doing the same. Downwards pulling hydrofoil - flying anchor.
Although a release would make some extreme boost!

(I'm not going to be the first to try it! Just trying to think outside the box :) ).
