    Foiling Week Miami 2018

    I have just seen on the Foiling Week website they plan to host an event at Shake-A-Leg in Miami on Feb 15th-18th. They don't have many details posted on their website, I wondered if anyone knew anything about this/what classes will be there? Also does anyone know who they will include as the keynote speakers at the Forum - I have heard these are always pretty good at their events in Garda. Its great to see them having an event here as their events in Italy look pretty good, just too far away for me! Any of the Miami crowd know anything? http://www.foilingweek.com/pages/season-2018/

    59er XX

    I'm looking for a new kite for my 59er. Nobody seems to be making them anymore I wonder if anyone could recommend a good alternative? e.g. RS800, 49erFX, 29erXX, F18... It seems the XX kites are also hard to get hold of now too! SCS

    AC Youth Cup

    The two selected teams don't have to go in Feb but the others that didn't get in may go for the one remaining US spot (and one remaining San Fran spot?). It says US teams make in through to the finals - is that the final round of trials in Feb?
