Re: Hydro Foil almost done

Below a video of a foil caveating, pretty amazing stuff.

Straps or Duct tape and just punch some vent holes at the back of the legs for water to escape if water does someone how make it past the straps or from the neck down. I think the industry term is Aquaflush :roll:
