Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
The Oracle Video with Oracle vs Kai lenny he is on a regular kite surfboard and yes proabably would have been faster downwind on a race board.. the 2nd video is Bernie Lake on a foilboard vs the New Zealand Team. foil boards can point higher upwind than raceboard or surfboards but not quite as fast downwind but that may change

Maybe way off base...but i think the foil has too much drag down wind....??
I am sure Mr Loscocco or one of the SF crew has a better / or correct answer...
