Learn to progress your kitesurfing from your sofa!

Just because you can’t get out on the water doesn’t mean you can keep learning and working towards becoming a better skateboarder / kitesurfer / kitefoiler. KiteSOFAing is Progression’s free weekly video series, where we teach you techniques you can practice at home along with the insight and understand that you have come to expect from Progression.

To tie in with the release of our new Foiling Foot Changes coaching video, today Rob is going to run you all through the body movements for the foot switch - whether you are riding a foil or surfboard. These are the drills we use with our coaching clients down the beach, so its perfect for you in your living room! Build up muscle memory ready for when you get back on the water. The body movement is just one part, the kite and board/foil is equally as important and you can see how they all fit together in Progression's full Foiling Gybes: The Foot Changes video.

Many kiteboarders will look scared when you tell them to try looping the kite but not all kite loops have to look the way the Pro's do them at the King of the Air! In this episode, Rob will introduce you to the key steps so you can practice your first loops of the kite safely in shallow water. Understand why you can loop the kite without getting pulled off your feet and how your kite and bar movements make this possible.
