4mtr x5.5mtr

wide enough ain't it

nice smooth looking water it's on

wonder what the lift-off speed is...

so he comes screaming up the beach

folds the foils up, rounds up and jumps in

other pics seem to show folding

Way frickin' cool.

Doesn't look like much wind either!

How do they ballance that thing when it's up on the foils? Looks like a very narrow base.

Its still got the rudders out at the edges. I'd bet its more stable side to side than you'd think

Check out how the daggers/foils fold underneath. How cool is that?

Is that a modified A cat? Looks like an A with 10' beams?

One of the pics on tge FB page it looks like its at least 12' maybe even 14'. Hard to tell though, there's no sense of scale.

Wonder if they got a tow-in to build up the apparant for these shots?

But looks great. Will be very stable when on the foils if kept horizontal, but i think any heel could lead to ventilation issues.

And about time cats started going fast! Bit embarassing when a 11ft moth with only 8m of sail goes past a 20ft boat with 5x the sail area...
