Thanks everyone for the support on my Gofundme campaign ( https://www.gofundme.com/helpgunnargetanewlaptop) . I hope we can keep the momentum going.

Speaking about momentum. Here is a video of a raw training run at flag beach.

Cool, the board looks really thin, which board is it? Is it better then the Teamavento/Moses?

Hi Pedro.

It's a Board from Groove Kiteboards. Its 143 x 43cm

I am still testing, but i find it easer to recover from touch downs easier with this one. Also as there is a bit more flat area along the bottom I find waterstarting easier in light winds.

Is your GPS built into the camera or mounted with the camera? It seems that your speed jumps around a lot, but it seems to be nicely in sync with the camera shake. If so it seems to be quite accurate!

It's a GoPro 5 Black which has GPS built in. It is sort of accurate. Here is the Polar from my Suunto Ambit.

Probably new the Mikes Lab Bullet LW or the Banga. Both of there foils are very easy to ride (for race foils).

Most new boards are pretty good. The Moses/TMV Comet, Groove, Axis, are all pretty easy to get used to.

isn't Mikeslab made out of unobtainium anymore? Read there was a one year waiting list somewhere, is that old information?

He did not ask what was readily available, he just asked what was the best. :-)
