Inspired by all the handheld wings we’ve seen lately, here’s something you don’t see every day… Watch Dmitry Evseev attempt to foil with an umbrella!
Lately, we’ve seen numerous leading manufacturers testing handheld wings, and we’ll be seeing these wings appear in their 2020 collections. One of the prototypes has recently appeared for testing on our local beach in Le Morne. I spotted a rider on a foilboard holding an inflatable wing, and my first thought was, I wonder if an ordinary umbrella would work?!
It sounded crazy, but with help from a friend, I thought I’d give it a shot!
