Could we see a new craze here? ‘Kite foiling’? If you thought foiling boats were amazing in their own right, think again!
Never mind foiling boats with wing sails, how about combining foils with a kite on a multihull? This ‘kitesurfing’ sailing foiler looks like a whole heap of fun… It’s called The Kiteboat Project and during the video, filmed in San Francisco, the kite-powered foiling triamaran hits a top speed of 31.5 knots. We’d love to have a go ourselves!
If you thought the kite foiling trimaran looked crazy in that video, check out this video of the same craft surfing in waves in Maui! It looks extreme and rather scary, but amazing… and it must have provided a very exciting ride!
