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.
