Video: Foilboarder Nearly Decapitates Another Surfer

Stand-up foilboarding has been gaining in popularity over the past few years, and for good reason. There's something special about near-magically floating above the water while your fellow surfers wallow about.

WSL Cancels 2020 Season, Makes Tour Format Changes

Not that it actually ever got started, since not a single Championship Tour event has taken place this year.
