Derek Hamasaki's new 4'6" X 24" wide foil board. I'm not sure if I could prone paddle that thing but Derek's going to stand up paddle it.

Love it, thinking of building a short Foil SUP with about 100 Liters and wide and short. But this might just be too much...

I've seen a lot of photos of him in action always impressive, but I never realized he may be with me in the over 50 crowd. Crazy size board

Derek is an amazing waterman, I looking forward to see what he can do with this baby.

Is this a new flying v mini. I feel like buying an old race board and cut in a half and install the dual track box.

Looks good and nice to see the change to higher aspect wings , exciting times ahead. Seems most designers now are trying them. Initially they were for down wind but have seen some guys ripping on them in the surf just like Derek in the above shots. I'm sure we'll see that rear wing change on the Go Foil as well.

Just loving the never ending R&D in this sport

Impressive...

Note the nice property of flat wings and stabs (no dihedral) as they keep their balance when breaching a tip in turns.
