Foiling Tornado

Report and video from Johan Grönvall on his foiling Tornado project.

Last weekend we had the first test of the foiling Tornado.

The wind was far too strong for a first trial, but as it was the last chance for the season and we couldn’t resist the temptation.

As you can see, we had some difficulty to find the pitch balance – but still it was an amazing feeling to be airborn!

To the next season we will adjust the rudder downforce and practice to find the right pitch balance.
