the obvious reason why more riders aren't using foils is that if the wind was light enough for a foil to give a competitive advantage the race would be postponed due to lack of wind.
considering all of that info. there is only really 1 criteria that I see foils excel at. upwind angle.
What if and i mean what if there was an Olympic discipline with a 5 mile course "upwind"only
And the wind very light 5-6-7 knots max to give foil (like SP3 21) an advantage
A skilled racer on the best raceboard available would sure leave all the tubes in its wake
So i agree with you C Johnson.....the 21 would win Gold...in that type of venue..and Supalo wind
