In the surf world, hydrofoil boards are turning heads. In the south of France, the town of Anglet has actually taken steps to ban hydrofoils altogether. It was the first such ban in the Atlantic. Here in the Pacific, Hawaii organizers of the standup paddle race between Molokai and Oahu added a Hydrofoil division. The winner of that race was Maui waterman Kai Lenny, who made the trek in less than three hours.
