I read some people not so keen on his commentary style, and I get that, but I think he fills 2 3/4 hours very well and I enjoyed all of it.

I always remember advice he gave on an old video. You gonna go out there and you're down and you're swimming - you gotta ask yourself - Would I go out there for a swim?

A bunch of windsurfers mentioned in this video of an 11 year old Hawaiian waterboy making the first wingfoiling crossing from the big Island to Maui - 49 miles.
Ken Winner designed the inflatable wing and Alex Aguera developed the first hydrofoils for open ocean swells. Kai Lenny has paved the way for crossings on a foil.
