K2 Kiteboat – High Speed Foiling in Rough Water
You may have seen this kite foiling boat pop up a lot recently. If you were impressed with the previous videos then you NEED to see this! Whilst foiling in windy, choppy and tough conditions in San Francisco the legendary boat very nearly capsized!
In 2015, Kai Concepts switched from a J-shaped foil to a T-shaped foil. The T-foils required some calibration, but now that we’ve got them dialed in, boy do they work.
