impressive to say the least!
Pros will allways push the limits of the sport!
i have 7 herniated discs that tell me i probably will never achieve that!
What would be an average speed for long distace cruising on a foil?
how much energy does it take compared to racing board or tt riding ?
I dont think it requires ANY energy at all - but lots of talent
You can cruise huge distances with no effort at all, on a hydrofoil - even when there is 1 meter chop waves, you just cruise along at high speed, feeling "nothing" but joy (no impacts whatsoever - amazing)
For high speed long distance you need a smaller foil (less drag) than for up/downwind racing in light wind, but you still have very low forces as far as I can tell from myself and theory (as I can not ride THAT fast
But requires skill and balls, as if you crash, you SPLASH
