Hydrofoil Magic

In the last year, Jean de Falbaire and I have been catching up occasionally to take photos of him kite-foiling. Currently the fastest on a hydrofoil in Mauritius, Jean was ranked 22nd out of 124 in the 2016 Hydrofoil Pro Tour, even though he competed in only two out of four events – 8th place in Mauritius and 11th in Australia. Oh and he also won the downwind dash in Langebaan (South Africa) earlier this year. He’s a relaxed dude who just finished high school so he’s obviously partying hard these days, but make sure to keep an eye out for him in the next seasons.

Here are a few pics from the last few days, a late Thursday afternoon and with a big bright sun on Saturday morning.






A little too close for comfort…
