Although we’re still very far from achieving glide efficiencies as high as would be required to fly, for the first time in history, with the very fast moving, low slope walls of an open ocean ground swell, I trust it’s technologically possible to reach them.  Things are just getting started, and the amount of design strategies unfolding before us is staggering.  I believe that, under the right development circumstances, veritable dream craft with which to fly for miles like an albatross could be built in the near future.
