    Hydrofoil Wakeboard

    Another interesting combination of different sports.

    What I want to know is how does one become an R&D guinea pig for a surfboard company? That looks like fun.

    All I see is the foil spinning back around and splitting heads during a wipe out..

    Would still like to try it though

    Nothing wrong with putting a helmet on.

    I'm quite surprised it has taken a company this long to mix those two. I mean the air chair has been around for three decades..foils are nothing new. I see limitless options with surf board and foil combos. Some of those sky ski foils and wings go for crazy amounts. Of course I can't see many people wanting super dynamic wings for this thing as hang time wouldn't appear to be the main game with this toy...we shall see.

    Of course kite surfing has been around for several years:
