Once I slowed down and got my setup working, it was game on. I got on the board, gave one or two pumps to the MFC foil and it was lift off! Here I was, 3 feet out of the water gliding around with a beaming smile over a sensation that was just like that first glide I felt 25 years ago down a long and skinny percolation pond in Palm Springs. I was up and down and back and forth on the foil, grinning from ear to ear. One minute leaning back too far and having it fly into the air, then over-correcting and having it smash down into the water. The excitement to get it right had me jumping back on the board trying to get it hovering across the lake. I was loving it! Having a challenge like this on a windsurfer was something that I had not had for quite some time, especially on a lake. The feeling of floating across the water was incredible. I began to see why people love foiling. The glide with no sound, hovering above the water, having that ultimate sensation that you were indeed flying. No noise, not too much pressure in your hands, mostly out of the harness, a total sensation of ease and glide that kept that sensation going all day long. I was hooked. I just wanted to keep getting better and better at it.
