Laird HAMILTON latest interwiew about THE new dimention of riding waves with his Hydro FOIL : Enjoy !
A foilboard or hydrofoil board is a reinforced surf-board … with a Foil ripping the water under it. This design causes the board to leave the surface of the water with enought speed.
Catching the energy of a wave, Laid HAMILTON, in 2010 has been the first Tow Waverider to experience the FOIL SURFING capabilites using the swell energy with the help of a jet ski only to pull him into the wave … then riding along by himself !
Other watermans like Mango Carafino, have designed hydrofoil for kitesurfing ever since.
” FOIL is really the most efficient surfing instrument in the world … ” (Laid HAMILTON, 2015)
