I wonder if Rey got put off or injured on that thing..
No, it actually turned out to be a fun trialproject, I just posted result on my local forum, plus since its off season in my neck of the woods, I'm either working, surfing, or taking some classes so I don't have to deal with work related stuff when our season swings back in next year.

Have also built a simple styrofoam core boogie board hydrofoil, inspired by plummet's post when he was considering building one himself, not as pretty as other craftsmen build around here, but its functional and it works:

ClearWater Hydrofoils have some surf wing blanks that he posted for sale a few months back, now thinking about getting a wing set and learn how to glass using carbon fiber materials and vacuum.

I like the attachable stringer in the fin holes!
