Foilboarding Johnny Heineken Hits the Heights

Foilboarding Johnny Heineken Hits the Heights

#foilboarding – Kitsesurfing got a new dimension stateside when American Sailor of the Year Johnny Heineken completed manouvers such as foiling tacks using a kiteboard. The hydrofoil eliminates the effects of choppy or rough conditions. Due to the hydrofoil's underwater characteristics, the rider can angle higher into the wind than on traditional kiteboards which ride on the surface of the water.
