What is Foiling?
A boat whose hull is fitted underneath with shaped vanes (foils) that lift the hull clear of the water to increase the boat's speed.
Invented in 1898 by Enrico Forlanini, the hydrofoil has been used in a wide variety of applications. They have been used on military ships, transport vessels, and even helped team Oracle win the America’s Cup. Soon you will see them coming to a kitebeach near you on what is widely known as a foilboard.
