By popular demand, here's the first flood of information and images from the show without a lot of commentary. Sorry about not rotating the images, I don't have the time right now. Just tilt your head.

Remember how I teased you guys about something very interesting from Drago? According to Corran this thing actually does work -- it's a hydrofoil. That horizontal fin on the bottom acts as a wing to elevate the boat above the surface of the wave. Of course my question is how do you reach the water with your paddle at that point. Nevertheless, Corran gets the Innovation of the show award this year pretty much hands down with this one.
