Hey crew,
Went down to my local on a light wind day to help a friend get going on his foil. Just so happens that a dude was down there with a drone and took a bit of footage. It was a real bonus day because my friend cracked it that afternoon and is now foiling. Like all of us, what seemed impossible at first is now happening. I was pretty stoked for him. Days like this day are why I got into foiling, being out on the water and the freedom I get from disconnecting from land. I have doubled my time in the ocean since I took it up, and that an only be a good thing... cheers

Agree now love 8 to 15kn and not that long ago wanted only 15kn plus before discovering foiling.

PS, I still love riding waves on a surfboard more than anything. But this is pretty sweet.

Yep, that's still very good over 18kts, but just wait until you are on a phat wave foil at 14kts and take some slightly peaked swell you wouldn't look at any other time - I mean a real minger - let go of the bar and ... whooooo!.
Popped my cheery doing some of that last Sunday. Phat surf foil now for Christmas, or earlier.
BTW. that's a sweet-looking spot from the air, and I like your production preparation by matching the kites' colours with the landscape - South coast?

This foil is the Zeeko Spitfire with the xlw wings, which I think was the second edition. I believe there is even a new version now as well. This pivots on a dime and has been fun in small surf. Haven't hit any decent ocean swells yet, but I can't wait!

The bits where you look to be hooking along are cool .
is that just editing?
at least I hope it is, otherwise I need to push my Std. Spitfire wings a bit harder.

The wings move really well. I am pretty stoked with the balance of speed and the slowness you can achieve while still being on the wing. I still have loades of learning to do with the Spitfire.
