for one season, then rode relaunchable foils for 5 seasons. I am now
on the Sonic and loving it.
Upwind is a great video. It's one of the few videos I have seen that

like a bit of a kook on a foil with handles and hearing Robbie Naish
talk about how fantastic it looks.
The last issue of Stance DVD mag had a road trip movie from 1999 where
the Euro crew met up with the Hawaiians. It showed Bertrand Fleury on
an F-One foil and wakeboard doing handle passes and kite loops.

-does this still go to full depower when you let go the bar?
what are the double attachments for the steering lines?
how much adjustment in the trim strap? 20cm more less?
