And if they can do this to anyone’s face, they can kill. Let’s hope we don’t see this sport become SUP popular.
Indeed, Kai Lenny can make any wave craft look fun and easy but it Foils are not easy nor safe for all. These boards pose a real threat to limb and life to riders and other surfers at the break. Japanese surfer Yu Tonbi Sumitomo is an advanced surfer and had to have a Foil for himself after seeing Kai (see link below). It wasnt long after he was seriously hurt. This injury prompted Mitchell to speak up. Thank goodness.
