Saw this new crossover between a kite and a windsurfer looks unusual!

Wing Surfer??

TBH I haven't bothered sharing on here, all the brands have jumped on this now. It's not entirely new though there was something similar back around the the early 00's but not with the foil board of course.

Word is it's very hard to get started i.e. getting up and riding. I guess it would be easy enough on a big SUP. Hopefully I'll get the chance in July but at the mo at least don't really see the point in them.

guess they will be cheaper than a kite and pack down small though.

Blimey, I agree, I would rather have a kite than have a wing right in your face

Interesting article from good mate Rou

"Oh My Word. What a feeling. I’ll be honest, I wanted to hate this and that first 15 minutes left me wondering what the point was. Now, flying above the water on a wing using a wing, it felt incredible, maybe it was the euphoria of succeeding at something that felt rather tricky and difficult, perhaps it was just that indisputable buzz of flying across the ocean"
