Yep. Now clear
It's pretty fresh subject begun a year or two backwards.
Nowadays I am testing various foil race boards between 55-60cm. This is one of my prototypes:
I’d like to mention these boards are much suitable for light wind conditions than any adaptation of wave board. They are shorter, wider and fat. It allows me foiling the board already in 5kts on 13m kite. A classic wave need 2 kts more ish. Most of time I ride in light winds so it's important for me.
I believe that's direction of foil boards development in coming years: 55-60 by 140-150cm and volume 50-60ltrs. Not only for racers but for any anyone riding in sub 10kts conditions.
