Wingfoiling with a canard foil. The foil in the video looks to me like it has different shaped wings compared to the squared off wingtips of the 1300 sq cm Spitfire XXLW shown at the end of the video. Zeeko are saying that they will be introducing a 1600 sq cm foil soon, so maybe it will be a Canard?
Because both wings lift upwards on the canard foil, it can get more total lift from the same wing area. Regular foils total lift is the front wing minus the downforce of the back wing.
