All the top riders are here and getting ready for the first race today. We have seen presentations of the latest F4 hydrofoil, the new Ozone R1foil kite, the new FOne boards and hydrofoil, and the Taaroa Sword2. Technology is progressing rapidly. We also see the new FOne race kite and a new Flysurfer one too. Both look very fast. Of course all the top racers will be on these foil kites or the foil kites from Ozone or Elf.
The new Mikes lab board pictured above seems to be the choice of some top riders with its heavily beveled edges which allow the rider to edge very aggressivily. But we shall see.
The Spotz2 seems to be a very popular foil but the Taaroa team has some very strong riders. And Maxime will be on the new FONE foil.
I went in the practise race Monday which was fun but it convinced me that my Ozone Edge tube kites just don't cut it anymore. So I am using this as an excuse to not compete rather than admit that my shortage of skill is a factor.
Having fun here in LA Ventana.
