Couldn't find a lot of places with them listed yet, but on a couple of sites they said $2k for the foil, $1.2k for the board, no kites listed yet.

That boost in their video looks like a tow up it's so high!

I think the name is hella stupid though. For those that don't get it, they are trying for a play on words AV8 == Aviate (aka aviator, aka aircraft pilot)

I actually refuse to believe anything else, has to be a tow-up in those conditions. If the waves were swallowing up that pier with 40 knot wind, only then maybe.

Exactly my thought. There's not even white caps and he looks to be over a kite standing straight up.
They probably didn't get the right condition and had a to get the video out.

I'm not sure why you think that's stupid. Their other kites sound like a motorbike, a knife, a company that makes movie graphics, a homeless man, and a Central American conflict from the 80's, but one named after flying is stupid?
