Competition will help. As soon as enough people are able to flatwater start a SUP foil, then supfoils can start competing in sup races. Standard distances are 200m
, 4km, 8km, and 16km.
Just as relaunchability is the limiting factor for some kite uses, flatwater start-ability should be the goal of foil/sup-board design, until enough people can do it that we can have races.
Easier to learn to pump w a kite than behind a boat?
There have been races where a foil was used. It is much faster (by 22%) over 200m - and that was with one of the old GoFoil wave foils.
