I have heard rumors of F-one working on a foil for at least 2 years now, but still nothing?
I see it this way.
Many times in wind below 10 knts or so the only guys on the h20 are foilers, so all the guys on the beach with normal gear can`t ride and of course want to, especially if they are on vacation or simply have limited time to play.
So foils get exposure!! And so easy to see a foil flyer above the h20!
Plus foils just look cool, and I remember the first time I saw a good flyer (Marc Blanc in 2009) was so impressed!
I think (I could see it completely wrong) that the bigger names in our sport were waiting to see if foiling would have enough interest, meaning potential buyers ,to merit a lot of time and money to release a GOOD foil.
Takoon has made the jump, and what about Naish, North?
What do you think?
