Re: What are your Worst Accidents Hydrofoiling?

Twisted ankle due to foot not coming out of strap. I'm now using foot hooks so that problem is easily solved. I've also experienced lines in foil followed by deathloop.

Re: Controlling Height

With all that great advice to put into practice the wind went on holiday...typical. It finally returned today and I got out and put the bent front knee into practice and suddenly found I was controlling the height. Such a simple tip but it made such a big difference. Thanks.

However, now these things are not a problem anymore. So I'm sure it will be the same with this. T...

Re: Controlling Height

You're right Dylan, I am tending to ride more upright. I know it's all down to time on the water and i feel i get a bit better each time out but slow progress. Being the only foiler here at the moment your advice is very useful.

Thanks for the tip about bent front knee, I can see how that will shift my body and apply more pressure.

Re: Controlling Height

Controlling Height

I’m a relative beginner having started foiling in May. I have a Shinn el stubbo and Zeeko foil. As a kitesurfer of 15 years I thought I’d have the basics of foiling, gybing and tacking cracked by now…yeah dream on! I have struggled and progress has seemed soooo slow.
