Transitions - How ?

Apologies in advance if this has been covered many times already. I'm up to approx 10 sessions so far on the Hoverglide (solo mast), I can manage super long runs without issues but I have no clue on how to do transitions !

Re: Firewire Vader, Fins recommendations

Currently running quad with a set of Futures 437 plastic. I like it so far. Better upwind than thruster.

Re: Eye protection -> tips on cheap and good-ish sunglasses for kiting

Here in Australia I lose my sunnies all the time when sailing or kite surfing so I now buy uv wraps from Bunnings. Cost 13 bucks and they are uv protective plus shatterproof.

Re: What are your Worst Accidents Hydrofoiling?

Wow some really nasty accidents in this thread.

Another reason to always wear full wet suit and booties plus helmet of course.

I'm keen to know more on how to crash properly...

Re: First foil - Slingshot hoverglide ?

Thanks for all the replies !

I think I will bite the bullet go for an used one. I'm not looking for speed, just the shortest learning curve with the short masts then upgrade if I like it.

First foil - Slingshot hoverglide ?

I've researched for my first foil but the amount of different opinions is rather overwhelming ! I have 3 years experience kitesurfing, started with TT and now use surfboards 100%. Mostly in flat water, with a view to get into the surf once more confident. The idea of learning to foil on a tall mast ...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

What's going on there and is the brand on solid footing? For example, It took them forever to release their new bar and ...
