technique to run next to foil?

Postby slingshotucf » Mon Mar 26, 2018 1:30 pm

Looking to see if how to do this trick. It's seen in this video https://youtu.be/jpKr-soOFp0
Not really sure of the placement of the kite and the hand on the board. Is the rider looping the kite? Any tips would be great. Thanks

Surely not looping the kite, just well powered keeping the kite quite high and pulling the bar gradually...


You can see here when Stephane, a couple of years ago, hold the bar steady one hand at the center:

I'm just guessing, but an intermediate step could be to just trail the feet until you have the balance, then run?

God, it is just showing how Euro riders are so much more progressive with a HF :) I guess we are spoiled with a surf.

Excellent vid's, thanks!

Can you trail one foot already?

Ketos did a tutorial to show how to do one foot.

Learn one foot and then move on from there?
