There's a website link in post 91 above. On the site is a "buy now" box you can click on or you could write to Dave Clark.

Jeez! Wouldn't it be simpler and cheaper to just sail a Windsurfer?.

foiling

Thanks, Paddy. There are many windsurfers in this area and about an equal or larger number of kitesurfers. Saw my first foiling windsurfer almost 10 years ago at Caleema Windsurfing. The other day, in front of my place, I saw my first foiling kitesurfer-just incredible! And the guy was good-never fell. Amazing times we're in.......

I don't think a windsurfer is necessarily more simple, my son windsurfs and the amount of gear he has to cover changing conditions is amazing plus it requires serious skill as does the Moth. The UFO looks like even I could sail it. I think its a brilliant concept, very well thought out.

I'd hate to be the person that has to grind/cut those flanges down!
