Is it just my perception, or do French guys with big money seem to produce more

Yeah....  That's the trike causing some of the uproar on S.A.  They're
definitely riding the edge.  It's a shame that the Hobie Trifoiler

Is it just me or does that thing look like its ready for a major face plant?
Closer to the beginning of the video it looks like the boat is doing some
