Just saw my first prone surf foiler last weekend and compared to all the prone surfing I've seen on the Great Lakes prior..... its a huge improvement. Two to three times the ride length and probably 2-3 times the ride frequency. Was duly impressed from my elevated perch while catching 20-30 times the waves for 8-10 times the ride length, but whatever. It was a pretty decent improvement.

I’m sure compared to nothing it’s good, but since it has to be windy to use one I’m comparing it using a kite, so....
