Isn't that like the cost of a good mirror on these boats? haha

Yeah get a soulcraft 1st!!

Picture of board looks like your rear wing is really big. Maybe just camera angle?

If you get around to upgrading check out Gong foils. They only sell direct. Really good prices on full carbon. They are in France so shipping is high and they always sell out before they even start shipping. Email them or place order and they will send you a quote and delivery time. Prices include VAT so you get that discounted from price. Best to order in off season so you can be patient. Really nice designs. Here is a link of designer/owner explaining more than you need to know about his foil designs. Oh yeah it's in french with sub-titles and over an hour long! Lol. 1st 15 min was enough for me and I love to geek out on this stuff. Plus He's got the full ZZ Top facial going on.

Demoed a Lift efoil today for my 64th birthday. I've been really getting into foiling behind the boat and wondered how it would compare. I like the feeling of riding the wave better but being able to go out anytime and as often as I want is a huge plus. I just started getting to where foiling feels like surfing so definitely want to keep riding behind the boat. The efoil was really fun even tho I was just getting used to it. Can do some insane carves in glassy water. I'm absolutely getting one next spring!

Can I understand? Is the forward "motive force" for theses foils the pressure wave from the boat?

Do you start with a rope and then the wake takes over? I am just not sure where the energy is coming from?

Same principles as surfing except can work with much less push, smaller wakes. Easiest way to start is with a rope (discussed earlier in post). Get used to getting on foil and then get in wave and toss the rope. Very easy to stay on the wave once you're used to being on foil.
