I was blown away when I saw Marc Blanc foil strapless in 2008, we thought the guy was super human, he is close!
And now an ultra lite t bar with wings is on the market for strapless jumps, go HORUE!
"The Horue® H13 is the lightest series kitefoil and most radical in the world.
Designed by Philippe Caneri in 2013, inventor of numerous figures strapless on this model, the H13 is now mass produced in France CNC machined molds to ensure symmetry and perfect compliance profiles.
For experienced kitefoileurs, it responds to the slightest touch without any latency. With less than 1500g equipped, it is the only kitefoil suitable for strapless jumps. "
1.5 kilos is 3.3 lbs
I really believe in giving credit where it is due and both of these guys merit tons!
