Thanks again for your help Peter_FrankPeter_Frank wrote:When you say "try to turn to toeside", do you mean switch your feet from heel to toeside (or reverse), or do you mean turn the hydrofoil around and ride toeside ?
Two completely different things....
Learning to ride toeside, you simply carve around 180 degree, and ride the other way toeside !
Sounds easy, it is not - till you have learned - then it is easy

What happens when you try?
One thing someone posted recently. Using a fixed hook was a challenge vs sliding hook. The angle seems more severe foiling. I can only fly one handed even with slider. So maybe that might help? Get the pull more to the side will open up an easier angle?
Maybe you are right, but not sure, could be individual and depending on level ?lieutenantglorp wrote:If you want to stay on foil from heelside to toeside you should downloop the kite. It helps a lot, since the kite will pull you around and be in the right position to keep you going toeside.
Especially with a foil-kite I have problems with that, not with my wave LEI's.Peter_Frank wrote:....If it is not windy, I find downlooping way more difficult and risky and you need "perfect" timing - whereas the normal carve turning the kite up, leaves you with more options and less risk of downwing the kite
