Re: How to Wing Foil: Introduction (from wing handling to first flights)

Amazing video :) Very useful, I saw it on YouTube before. I tried to repeated that but it is not that easy how it looks like. I think the guy on 4:08 is not doing it properly he is flipping it over length not the width. (like the guy on the land) . Newbie here, but make more sense to do it by width,...

Re: Beginners struggle and broken pump inside the wing

So, if nobody has objections I can write some things here, so maybe helpful for someone who is learning too and I can backtrack. Today I got some wind :) Probably strong enough but not consistent and not sure about direction - I thing it was changing. Since my first time with some wind-ish weather I...

Re: Beginners struggle and broken pump inside the wing

So, I went 3-4x times since last time (sorry so busy to write here) Some things I learnt - When inflating wing make sure that valve is not in deflate position from last time. - No swimming glasses, I do not use them now and it falls when I fall - Backpack is pretty non-comfortable with wing leash - ...

Re: Beginners struggle and broken pump inside the wing

Ok, So, today I tried it again :) Wing seems to be ok - possible to inflate. Seems to me that if the wing can be inflated the valve must have been intact. If so, then in seems impossible the missing part was inside the bladder. You would have probably heard it bouncing around if it was. I suspect t...

Re: Beginners struggle and broken pump inside the wing

I was able to knee and move little with wind - is it possible with light wind , like 2m/s to go against wind ? No matter how I was rotating wing I always ended up going downwind, normal or I am doing something wrong ? Azor, you will find it much easier as you build muscle memory but to go up wind y...

Re: Beginners struggle and broken pump inside the wing

Hi, thank you for the reply :bye: , well happened to me, I actually didn't hook the pump to wing as I know from my kite-trying, what a mistake. I already leashed to me/arm so I expected that if some gust happen it will just flag out on my arm, well lesson learn, https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/6...

Beginners struggle and broken pump inside the wing

Hey there ! I live close to beach and I love water sports and I would love to kite, unfortunately I had some struggles past time. I bought equipment (7+9m2) but every time I went to try that I FAILED miserably(from tangling lines, no wind etc). I tried to take course but didn't succeed there too (on...
