So I was watching the videos of Hamilton riding Chicama on foil boards...has anybody around here actually tried riding a modern foil board prone?

Surfoils has been riding them for years - I tried an early prototype in junk surf but they have advanced since then.

Thanks for posting the link. Between that vid and the "boogie foil" series that came up after I think I got my questions answered. I like the idea of the feeling of "flight" but that looks awkward, uncomfortable, and without flow...beyond the suggested vid where the person just rides the wave. Different strokes, right?
