- So, I was actually campaigning
on the old Olympic wind surfing class,
back, maybe three years ago now.
Stopped running my campaign on that,
and then began foiling on the hydrofoil kit.
I did the world tour some competitions on that,
And then as soon as hydrofoil wind surfing
became the new Olympic class
the OAA put together a little support program
basically for up and coming senior foilers
has been traveling around the world
with this training group ever since.
- Compared to normal windsurfers
we are, start off, I guess, much more efficient.
So we're going way faster
in nowhere near the same amount of wind.
So, we need less wind to get going.
There's none of the kind of,
rough bump of the water anymore,
which is gliding across it.
It feels like you're floating.
It looks less stable,
but when you're traveling at speed
the wings just create so much stability
that it's just like,
being on a platform, raised up out the water
got a nine meter rig for the guys,
eight meter rig for the girls.
It literally just pretty much clip-on and go,
Essentially one man, and one woman
will go to the Olympics in 2024.
And that would be the first Olympic games
where the IQFoil equipment's been present.
There's only one of us will go,
but at the moment
we're training all together as one team.
And when it gets a bit closer to the time
it will basically be a bit more of a fight
for the top spot.
But yeah, so that's the format for now.
