<<- kitesurfer for many years with lots of time on the water, learned all the handlepasses when they started, buys an hidrofoil and goes to the water thinking he will rock it in the first hour.... wrong!! soooo wrong!!!
One thing I've noticed in my first 5 hrs,the flight school masts,the wealth of knowledge available makes learning a lot easier than what I've witnessed locally,I held off a year or so after watching some of my friends get destroyed ! I'm way ahead of the game because of more user friendly gear and being able to pick others brains! Not due to any special skills or talents I have most definitely ! This is a good time to be learning,can't blame equipment,its all on us.Pedro Marcos wrote: ↑Tue Aug 29, 2017 11:05 pm<<- kitesurfer for many years with lots of time on the water, learned all the handlepasses when they started, buys an hidrofoil and goes to the water thinking he will rock it in the first hour.... wrong!! soooo wrong!!!
Dude, I always thought the hydrofoilers were chilling out riding back and forth, lmfao! It's the total opposite. Learning is like riding the hydro hard. When you get good you can go for a nice walk on the hydrofoil and burn 300 calories in an hour, but if you start getting after it you will burn 1000 calories in a session easy. I wear a wrist monitor and if you do a lot of boosting you burn crazy calories, if you ride hard and fast a little less, and if you mow the lawn you can almost be talking a fast walk.pj sofine wrote: ↑Tue Aug 29, 2017 10:39 pmI actually got an aerobic workout,can't remember gasping for breath in 16 years of kiting.So I guess mother nature won this round,but I learned a lot and actually got a few 100 foot rides.If it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger!Can't wait for some user friendly conditions,
Sounds like fun,good thing I'm a masochist This reminds me of when as a windsurfer I started kiting as a "low wind" option.Haven't windsurfed in 15 yrs lol.Now I'm looking at foiling the same way,we'll see what happens.Has anyone gone totally hydrofoil? Stopped tt and surfboards?
