Storm windfoiling looks pretty futuristic, especially in this new video by Horue. The video reached 10.000 views within 3 days and we have to admit watching Philippe Caneri speeding over the water reminds us a bit to James Bond movies.
When we saw the first foil on a windsurfing board it looked like a mix of windsurfing and sailing and was made for light wind conditions. Now we see a foil in 50knots conditions and it seems to work quite ok. But what are the advantages to use a 70l board with a 2 square meter sail and a foil over a classic windsurfing equipment? Why would you carry one more extra bulky piece to the beach? Will we see many windsurfers usings foils? Or is foiling just a new trend with an expiration date? Is foiling windsurfing or just another new sport?
