Ian Ward and Peter Stephinson (a/k/a Pedro), formed Glide Free Foils in 2010.  When the first pictures began to surface of a Laser up on foils, everyone believed it was photoshopped.  Then the videos began to surface and many still believed it to be a fake. Getting a Laser to foil almost seemed the equivalent of making pigs fly.  Not that a Laser is a pig but it's not a lightweight nimble boat like a Moth.  However, it seems that Ian and Pedro did indeed find a way to make pigs fly.  They just keep expanding the list of boats they can make fly. The future of sailing is here and it's a blast!
