Todays Foiling Breakthough: Foiling Gybes

Postby gmb13 » Sun Apr 06, 2014 11:34 pm

Hi Everyone,

Made a great little technique discovery today about the foiling gybe. Now that I know about this it's so much easier for me to do.

Stay tuned for my next series of "Step by Step" Foiling Videos. I had to reshoot most of the footage since I changed to Peter Lynn Kites so this project got postponed for some time.

First three Vids are planned for next week.

Until then check this out.

If you have the time and the technology, adding some text on top of the video about what you are doing with the kite and your timing and weight distribution would be awesome. Especially for the tacks. I must have watched every video of tacks and gybes on the internet, still suck at them.

Hi Dude,

That is exactly what I will be doing in the Step by Step Videos.

They will be set up like the progression videos. For example Foiling Gybe will start with Gybing on the water, then touch down Gybe then finally progressing to foiling Gybes.
