Crazy what they are pulling off already! Curious how many masts he has broken until now, can imagine the forces of impact are much higher on those enormous wings and you are not allowed to jump on your moses race foil anymore...

"Micro fractures on the mast caused by accidental collisions or by freestyle use of your race specific foil can cause the mast to break suddenly.

For this reason, we recommend to check the mast carefully after a collision and avoid to jump with your Moses race foil"

In all honesty, jumping a foil never really looks cool - having all that stuff hanging off the bottom of the board always looks a bit goofy.

Thanks for linking :thumb: Very nice and impressive
and a good answer on the last video from other side of the world, making many words about a single trick, which in the new video seems to be no more than a minor part of the overall "wing-escalation" :rollgrin:

It is really impressive how fast winging is evolving. I think pretty relevant for that is, you profit a lot when you have experience in windsurfing and for sure also kiting and foiling in the best case with all of those sports. Which brings up the real waterman / surfers in general sense and not the "I am wake style or old school ONLY" guys.

Also nice to see that actual top riders are not on worlds top spots, but on some ... European mountain lakes, really? :o :lol:

This sport has come to stay and to become very big, if you like it or not.
