shame they didn`t show it how a surfboard should be used, on big waves, but it looks like its just for rich posers the improvement would be, spend your money on a weekend at the beach, and stop looking like a clown on a flat river thats a big improvement

what intrigues me is that it appears so slow and yet it is fast enough for the thin foils to lift an adult off the water? Hell, I'd get one just to have a go on it.
