I thought the same 6 months ago. In the meantime I had twice a chance to ride on the proper wave with 10s plus period. And it was surprising fun. Feeling of the wave was unexpected great.
Most of us believe that once a foiler is a meter above water he cannot feel the water.
Wrong, wrong, wrong! Who rode waves knows what I am talking about
There is similar discussion on the Polish forum where majority of riders disbelieve as you.
I gave them to think saying that most of us understand, feel and see the Newton's law of universal gravitation. However it might be much more difficult to us to understand and first of all to feel or see the Einstein’s theory of relativity, which superseded a 200-year-old theory of mechanics
It’s a matter of time to see top foilers riding more waves, doing aerials, crazy tricks and generally bending our classical understanding of wave riding. I believe and enjoy it
