A twintip bidirectional hydrofoil is a learning tool for beginners to learn hydrofoil.
Just as a twintip kite board is a natural choice for beginners.
A surfboard can be also a natural choice for many beginners
If a beginner is a surfer or windsurfer he will learn naturally and quickly with surfboard
To me kite schools should spend equal time during lessons to have students experience both
When you learn to windsurf you learn to jibe and that is a real fun part of the sport
What makes learning kitesurf on surfboard easier is that unlike windsurfing you can go toeside
Who says jibing is necessary at every turn by the way
One can go heelside to toeside and stay upwind a long time and have fun...never moving the feet
When the back leg gets tired and burnt out just switch stance and move the back leg to the front
Pretty simple to learn if you ask me
Very rewarding too
What make an hydrofoil so elegant to watch is that it is mounted on a directional surfboard
