You might be right, but it might also just be because the kitewing/windsail is easily available because of years of use in skiing, so of course some use it on hydrofoils, either because it works well, or just for the fun of trying to do it with these.

Dont know, but lets see how it turns out - I am very sceptical myself I must say, but that is nothing but a hunch and feel, I know :wink:

Yes - how it performs will decide if it lives or dies.

This was Ivan Van Vuuren back in 2007





and earlier this year.

Tony Logosz has also experimented with a kitewing.

So there are plenty of capable people checking it out.

It is a homebuild, pretty sure - as the French really got hydrofoiling into "The world" by evolving it from slow Carafinos, to later being the worlds fastest sailing craft thus everyone jumped that wagon of course.
And now we are almost back to Carafino like wings again, for those who want to surf, a bit funny - but the racing craze was necessary to come to this point :naughty:
