the best race footage I have ever seen, and as for that crash and tangle around the mark, bejesus, how scary was that?

Footage is great, crash is spectacular, especially with the headcam on Daniela shouting "starboard!" at everyone and gliding through in front of the tangle.

The race in the video was in March, before coronavirus exploded. The video was just posted a few days ago.

I miss replays of events, retakes like Daniela crashing and yell can be heard but should be also a helmet cam video replay and maybe some right of way rule explanation. Sure racers knows the rules but random thrill seeker doesn't.

Also I miss telemetry data, sure commentator said some knots Theo was going but was that real.

Naturally laser radial is not as speedy as kite hydrofoil racing, but just stream production is much more interesting.. Seeing the tactics used ton water.. From below link start to 19:00=>21:00 mins just for quick example I mean.. Real battle of position, right of way and wind shadowing.
