What got you hooked/interested in foiling? I got into this sport because I saw Mike Murphy ride it at Sea World of San Antonio back in 90', and tried it that summer at a buddies house in new York while on vacation at my parents house. Hooked, but then rode it everyday for 4 months learning it in Germany in 1992. Damn these things have come a long way. I remember how the front of the first models had a snow shovel like front end, plastic seats, and no heal straps. Foot beds? Your sittin down! Quit whining!

Why Join USHA? I joined USHA for a few reasons. One, if I didn't join, what would that say about my support for the sport? You have to be involved if you are wanting to make things better. You can't sit on the sidelines and bitch, and expecting the sport to progress like you want it to. Another reason I join is the magazine. Sure there are lots of non-hydrofoil events in there, but so what? Until someone else besides Tony Klarich decides to pony up and make a decent full foil mag, it is the next best thing. Besides, I like reading about all water ski aspects. I also get wake board and water ski mags. It gives you something to look at and compare with.
