Foilboard.. I thought it was a typo but he really calls hydrofoiling with a kite "foilboarding". Is it just me or does that sound weird? We call it "Kitefoiling" around here.

Just watched it, and he is spot on in everything he says and he got a good point about "almost none of the good riders want to go and look stupid again when learning hydrofoil", so true and ridiculous too :thumb:

Foilboarding or Kitefoiling, doesnt matter what it is called as we will never be able to agree.

Just like there is no such thing as kiteboarding around here, it is called kitesurfing, but on the other side of the pond, and some other locations too, kiteboarding is used a lot.

Like windsurfing is called sailboarding or boardsailing in some countries - just different names.

Could argue though, that foilboarding is very "wide", as it will cover both windfoil and kitefoil and SUPfoil so this term is not as specific.

"Foil". To "foil". Foiling. Foiled. Been foiling. Just a perfect verb as far as I hear it. Just like "Google". Beautiful like the sensation itself.

Since I'm a newbie I seem to use the term "I've been foiled again"! :angryfire:
