- Gybing only becomes necessary when you need to ride upwind. Downwinders are possible without gybing once, so you can still have fun surfing waves without gybing. But it will eventually make things easier, especially when you kite on one spot or want to train to ride goofy and regular. So don't wait with wave riding because you can't gybe yet!
- It is easiest to learn gybing on a flat water spot.
- Follow the steps of the Kitekahunas video to practise the gybe and do it both with and without straps.
- Putting your new front foot swiftly and accurately in place will help you to gybe smoothly.
