Hey Dix,

I went through about 8 foils, years ago. The only ones that I ultimately liked were the land versions with open intakes without valves. You couldn't drop them for more than a second or two on the water but they were fun to fly for kitesurfing. The early water foils were a bit funky, to say the least!

I imagine that they have the valving down very well these days. What other performance attributes do you like with todays foils?
