Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

Really?. I'm amused that you presume to know how my mutant rides. I'd also like you to explain these 2 different worlds of carving.
Every TT rider on the planet uses yaw to turn, to switch from heal to toe, to induce sliding. Perhaps you have forgotten this? I also kite land board. Controlling powered drift is 90%yaw.Peter_Frank wrote:
But the very idea of "twist" to turn, is not natural for almost everyone is my statement, so I hope that it can help those who likes to "turn" and are just at the level where they experiment and crash a lot without turning much
So is using yaw to turn unnatural to me?. No it's completely natural. When started foiling I tried to use yaw input as I do on my other boards as the primary turning method and it was an astounding fail.
For me it's the seamless flow into the carve using a combination or roll pitch and a yaw which is the key.
