Yesterday (Monday 11/3/2008), Bill Von Zabern of Canyon Lake, CA did 3,058 consecutive flips on a hydrofoil in one continuous run. It took him 6 hours, 26 minutes. He rode 56 laps around Canyon Lake for a total of approximately 126 miles. He says he's not tired, but his back & kidneys hurt.... The old record for flips on a hydrofoil was 1,416, set by Geno Yauchler in the mid-to-to-late 90s. We thought that record would never be broken, but Bill hit his goal of doubling it. Bill has been training for over 6 months toward setting this record. Now, I have to wonder if there are any other Watersports with a 6 hour + endurance record. Iím confident no one else has done 3000+ flips behind a boat on the water, and I have to wonder if anyone has done 3000 flips in one day on any device on or off the water.
