I want to see video of this in action.

I wonder of the bottom is fiber glassed for rigidity.

I think he's passed on to the land of endless lines.
I would have loved to share another malasada with the man.
You can even kind of see the aloha shirt lams he did on those things.
I recall people making fun of him years ago.
Funny guy.
He always had a smiling insult every morning I'd see him.

"Hey, what you getting fat lately?!"
"Ohhh, you *still* surfing?"
"Hey boy, you wake up late, yeah?!"

A hui ho Gilbert!

Saw one of these in the water yesterday afternoon. I was at the reef break down the street from home and this guy buzzed by outside catching my eye. At first he was on his knees (with a helmet on!) and he headed north to another spot. He must have been new to it as it took him awhile to get to his feet.

Buzzed back by after 30 minutes doing 7-8 knots and I could see the remote control in his hand.

Thankfully he stayed away from where I was surfing.

IF someone does something that is annoying but they are not doing it where you are surfing, I say, have fun!

Thats David Tomasetti in CA , I think. He was doing foils before Kai, and Gilbert with the green board was foiling in the 80s. Another guy named Terry Hindricks was foiling in the 70s. Plenty of previous surfers who foiled before Laird and Kai.
