Threading the Needles

Tom Court heads out on a fun adventure…

Fliteboard is a pretty sick bit of kit I have to admit. As I have said before, there are so many different ways to ride hydrofoils, it is difficult to choose the perfect option. However when you rule out wind and waves, there is no match for this bit of kit. Electric foil boards have a bright future as they really open up the coastline to medium range exploration and in this video I put it to the test in some of the strongest tides in the world as I threat through the needles on the Isle of Wight on a full spring tide. I have been putting the flight board through it paces for while now and there isn't much that it cant handle… Anyways, this is shredding and threading the Needles Light house on a spring morning with the crew!
