It is an absolute beast......

And Alex does even need to go outside any more (which is good because he hates getting wet)..

I know more, but can't say - sorry :-[ :-[ :-[

„But they were coy about showing too much of their new foils, which they believe represent a significant development from the previous generation.“

Curious and tempted to see the new foils, which can move on two axes!

You don't need to be particularly interested in, or understand sailing to read and watch this and be in total awe of the man.  It's not Alex, but Thomas Colville:
