About this video
Once you ride your foilboard off the foil, we can teach you the three fundamental techniques that will get you to rise up on the foil and more important, stay there and glide along in control.
Kite control is vital and our use of multi-angles will allow you to fully understand the timings between your kite, body, board and foil. There is no need to be bouncing on and off the foil, because with the correct understanding you will be able to master the rise and glide quicker than you may imagine.
