It might just be the board they will do, as the t-bar looks like a Taaroa Sword

:rollgrin: Yah I don't think you are home free yet. In fact I don't think it has really even started yet. So far only the early adopters have shown interest, but wait till more and more races are won on a foil and someone comes out with an entry level version....

I'll be happy to just actually be Standing on one by the
end of next spring ; I'll give a Good-Go at it , and think it's Totally Do-Able !!
Gliding on a Hydrofoil, is the Only reason i spent an entire season learning
to ride on a strapped-surfboard ; for me it wasn't easy.

Just so Ya know : the information i got on this forum for building a hydrofoil
is just GREAT ; thanks to all the guys that bothered to make a post, (I O Ya) !!

@ : Laughingman ;
that was a Perfect explanation !! :thumb: :thumb:

$500 and I'll take one... My profession is a buyer so I'm trained to believe everything costs nothing :D
