Gunnar, you are a madman! Great idea. Many of us have old race boards around. So, the center fin position Tuttle box was in the right spot to mount the foil -- as far as being a good position for the foil mount? No modifications required?

Just as interesting, where was your camera mounted and how?

Thanks,
Stafford

Yes, but it needs to be a windfoil or in this case a surf foil wing on a windfoil fuselage. Although it also works with large surf foils like to Go Foil, but just not as good as this setup with the Moses 873 on a windfoil setup

Yes it works. All summer, I have been using an old Aguerra 85 liter race board for prone surfing (long board style since its floaty), and for light wind kiteboarding.
