Why do you think it photo shopped? I could see Kai doing this.

I'll bet that it's a very stable board to paddle.
But you can't ride it too close to the beach, must stay in deeper water.

I wonder if you could fit a flexible training edge to the vertical foil that is geared in a way that you could steer with a foot paddle as per UL boards?

Look at the rear foil half of it is missing , look at his left lat it's been clipped and do you really think he would launch of rocks on a foil. Not saying he hasn't done it just commenting on the photo. Maybe I'm wrong but maybe not.

I'm thinking the rear two tail foils drop down at 45 deg making the other wing not clearly visible at this angle..

This is where it all started.
DJ and some others will recognise Andrew McDougall from windsurfing days.

It gets good at about 1.40...



Next time you all want to complain about the price of boards, a new Moth will set you back about $30k.
Plus another $20k for alternative foils etc
