Surfski foiling: The dawn of a new era

I understand the concept and the interest in pursuing this avenue, but for foiling kite boarders and SUP, once they are up and running, they need little speed input. Will that be the same for a foiling surfski? Because paddling now several inches off the water will be difficult if not impossible. All one can do is brace, if needed. In the video of the Revo being towed, the guy, who is experienced, also has severe balance control issues, mainly due to the seated position. Its easier to shift weight when you are standing on two feet. This is one more barrier into the sport, where most discard the sport due to balance concerns. It will be mainly for the elite of the elite.
