Lone wolf,

Great shots, nice riding. Looks like foils are not holding you back.

Tell your photographer to try turning the white balance up a bit to get more detail.

I don't think it's the foils, I think it's the team riders - a foil company which owns maybe 5% of the total market is not going to be able to afford to sponsor a half-dozen top-level pro riders... Whereas several of the leading LEI companies have the cash for one or more top-level riders in their stable - sometimes they have a speed specialist, a wake-style specialist, AND a freestyle/freeride specialist, plus some women riders.

Flysurfer doesn't have a Dre, or a Vari, or a Hadlow, or even a Chasta - and you won't see Flysurfers performing at that level until guys like that get their hands on them. And I doubt you'll see Chinakites or Viper kites performing at that level either - for the same reason.
