First you'll need an operation to remove your pole only to find out its not for you.

Think that it may be a sly trick to get kiters travelling along the true path to righteousness ........ Windsurfing!

looks a bit of a summer toy, also could be dangerous if you lose contact with the board in strong wind

It was made for the windsurfer that wants to kite but are scared of strings.

^^^^ You guys will no longer need a semitrailer to get your gear to the beach, will make the sport cheaper now that you don't need a special purpose vehicle or trailer as well as the expensive gear.

^^^ As opposed to needing a semi-trailer sized piece of beach just to rig up on,

I think its a brilliant idea!! I think this might be the new best thing to get those weekenders who want a basic small kite wing to just foil along with out on the water. And it could be a great intro to either wind or kite foiling. This could even be a fun family toy as well. Maybe this is the new modern, causal thing to replace the 1980s windsurfing era when the sport wasn't so high tech, and the average Joe could get out and have a blast with basic skills. I can see even summer sailing programs getting a fleet of these.

I'm dying with laughter over the stupidity of this.
