Flying a board hydrofoil with nothing to help balance while surfing the energy of the wave, what a guy!
RESPECT :!:
Maybe being born in salt water helped?
Any one know if he kites?

Thanks Phil, I couldn't find any pictures with kites on his facebook fanpage.
Nowadays he seems to prefer just board and nothing else.
Such an inspiring and positive dude.
And yeah, he looks like he was born in the sea... or in the air 8)
