P.S. re twin tip foils. Those have yet to make a mark. Besides, that is design that values convenience over performance regardless of how you define performance. That's development not evolution.
Maybe small evolution details, but nothing that changes much - so the French has got it quite right with the earlier years evolution to get to this point, and even the first Carafino had the same principles, just with the exception most of ....todays foils are way superior in feel and performance, so extremely desirable....
Maybe something revolutionary will come one day, just like the Bow/SLE kites in 2005, you never know - but right now you dont have to wait for better gear IMO.
Hey PF,Tone wrote: I agree they haven't changed much however the work over the last decade by the French, almost silently brought the sport to a near peak without anyone noticing. Now the changes are all very subtle.
Now it may not be a design breakthrough, but making foils out of Aluminium and bringing the price point way down is a great bit of progression, it is getting more into the sport which is always good.
