Windsurf Wave Foiling

Failed to do this today. It could have been because the wind was gusting from 5 to 45 knots..

Towing a foil behind a boat


Lessons:
  1. Try the foil further forward on the board.
  2. If you are kneeling in the wrong place it is difficult to move;
  3. Acceleration can pull the person forward and the nose of the board down
  4. When the foil comes up the loose hand should go up into a slack-lining stance to help with roll control.
  5. Work out at what speed the foil comes out of the water, get to it, then stay at that speed (no faster).
I have three videos of me getting it mostly wrong. I will watch these some more and try to find more things that I can learn.

Foilsurfing beginners.


Two things that are wrong in this video:

1. They are carrying their boards nose first - should be tail first.
2. They are letting the nose ride high on the take-off.
When this happens, the wing stalls then dives.

If James did not have a broken leg he could be out in the water (at North Steyne) telling them..
