Pretty sure the overwhelming majority of those retiring before 40 are fortunate in circumstance at birth.

This dude has it good. All the toys in their newest form delivered to the tropics.

Good review of the Onda. Now that Ive had several sessions on mine Im going to say its not the be all end all of foils...there are always tradeoffs...for example the Onda wing floats and causes the whole rig to stick up and you have to body drag back to it in spill, it can be slow....but in an interesting way - you can throw a lot of speed on it and top it out and it doesnt seem to angle down and remains stable....of course overall its not as fast as others. And because its slow the crashes are not as brutal... to ride it without the jitters I had to completely move down a kite size in all winds...so thats a little confusing... but all in all its very good foil...and has its good and bad points like all other foils...nice editing on the vids!
