They need to develop special boot tip extensions for better carving/stopping control

^^ LOL That was my thought too. It's like tubing for grown ups. Hey, if it's fun, it's cool. Each to its own.

If I were in that beautiful snowy mountain, I guess I'd do something different. It looks cool though.

It's nothing new. It's at least fifteen years old, or even more... Did not catch on in the past, doubt it will now, but would love to try it if had the chance...

They better start making inflatable wing foil boards.
More than 10 years ago I bought a very nice inflatable lounge chair from their booth at ISPO and it's still in good shape
