In this 5 part video series, we’ll take you from zero to hero, starting from the beach to gliding above the water. With tried and tested teaching methods and techniques from foil coach Sam Ross coupled together with clear visuals from our on-water team, we’ll make your learning experience rewarding, simple, and fun.

We start at the beach with kit setup and orientation. How to inflate the wing and leave it safely. Then we’ll look at parts of the wing, such as the power and neutral handles, Struts, window and leash. Where a lot of people struggle is they take to the water too early, and don’t have success in flying the wing efficiently. Here we’ll do some exercises which really sets you up well before we take to the water.

  • Introduction
  • Inflating the wing
  • Parts of the wing
  • Basic wing skills
  • Powering the wing
  • Moving with the wing
  • Leaving equipment

If you can walk a triangle on the beach – you’re good to go! Enjoy the session!
