Saturday 7 20 24 morning call

I grabbed this photo of the Maui to Molokai race from Mateo Guru's Instagram account.


The official results haven't been posted yet, but in this thread on the Progression Project forum there's pictures of the arrival sheets. This is the first page of the SUP foilers. Congrats to 21 yo Edo Tanas, Italian living in Oahu. On his Instragram account there's a video of the last three miles filmed by his girlfriend. At one point she says that he's on the 600, which is a still to be announced size of the F-One Eagle X (which I pre-ordered last week, as I love the 700 I own). We carry F-One foils at Hi-Tech and at the moment we have EagleX 900 and 800 in stock and a 700 should arrive by the end of the month. I'm the one who orders them and I work Monday's 2 to 6, if you want to come and talk F-One foils.

On the Axis Instagram account there's a video of last part of the race of the 20 yo winner of the ladies Gabi Bella (congrats!).

This is the first page of the wing foilers. Congrats to winners Bobo Gallagher and Lily Buden, both 15 years old. Looks like young age helps!

Hookipa yesterday.


AFS (Alien Foil System) is a brand of high quality foils made of UHM (Ultra High Modulus) carbon in their factory in France. I own the Silk 650 and 850 that I use for SUP foiling at Kaa, but they make all kinds of foils, boards and wings and they're going to have a demo day tomorrow Thursday 18 at the circle of Lower Kanaha at noon.

This is a video of a session on my Silk 850.
