Foils: Another one drinks the Kool Aid

Just got off the phone with Rhett who's just tasted the sweet nectar. He's out in OR and sent me this pic of him at Flora Lake on his third session. He's sailing a rental Slingshot board and foil and can't praise it highly enough. He foiled for three days and had a blast. The Slingshot proved durable as he said he was hitting sandbars without damage. One day he was on a 4.5 while conventional windsurfers were on 5.0s. He felt overpowered so the rental suggested he try a 3.3. He said it was a crazy feeling using a sail that small but it worked fine. He thinks highly of getting a board/foil combo so it all works together even if it's more expensive to go that way.

He's taking his new Horue to the SC coast next week to hone his skills. I'm so stoked for him (and jealous).

On "to do" list. Trying to get new post notifications working presently.

In the meantime, log in and comment. Your momma would have wanted you to do that. Wink
