So spent 3 days roll tacking. I´ve established that my surfboard tacks does not work on the foilboard. I seem to put so much weight on my backfoot to create lift and pivot that i foil out of the water. S a more gentle carve seem to be the tool.
Yesterday put on the GoPro as Im getting fed up after about 100 tack fails past 3 days and getting no progress.
Below is basically what happens every time. I have taken back foot out to create more pressure when carving. Surface tacks only.
My motion seems to carry me over the side of the board. I feel almost no lift from the kite and drop passing the board.
Sounds like you are on the right track
3 days and 100 attempts is not that much, just keep doing it (but not the whole session, as then you will get "over" focused and lose the target so to speak)
I can not do it well either, except occasionally - but I know how many attempts that are needed for me (a lot more ha haa), and how quickly you get away from the target, if you try too much
Others can give you more detailed advice I think, but would just say, that this sport is great because you dont learn as fast as "old" kitesurfing, and have to ditch a lot of your usual stuff, and start all over again like a beginner that only knows how to fly a ktie
This is a good challenge - and it pays off later and feels good, somehow much better than if easy !
