It would be better if it had a seat, cup holder and a cigarette lighter. Wink

Oh and "What does the Fox say?" Laughing

IWANNIT!

I live minutes from the Columbia River, but its urban and hilly environment and the wind vs current directions make it almost useless for WSing locally. I'm guessing its current makes SUP a huge PITA, too. But this thing might overcome both those obstacles and make my local waters useable, as well as opening up some large but very shallow waters on the Columbia.

Or is it just another stand-up jetski wannabe? Every toy looks great in ideal conditions under expert riders.

The Fox hasn't ridden dirt bikes or snowmobiles out west. Beats most WSing all to hell, ya don't have to be a slave to the wind, ya always have the right-sized sail in your right hand, and if ya miss a dune or cornice ya get a do-over.

Scourge! Would not want around me, especially in the break. Internal combustion--they pee on your f'ing rug man.

It's not what you ride! (but if it has a motor and vibrates, give to partner)

More hate!!! makes sups and kiters not so bad anymore

Personally, biggest problem is room in shed, and failure to convince team to buy 3 or 4 man outrigger canoe.....plus the whole $13k

would prefer :
slalom kit
hydrofoil
new drylock
airline tix
a wavegarden

before I got that..but.I would like to try on a crowded waist high day
The vid was weird with that whole "outside the lineup" shot
