Difference freeride freestyle in foiling?

Postby wavy navy » Mon Jul 29, 2019 9:41 am

With twintip it seems clear to me:
Freestyle: unhooked
Freeride: weekend-hobby-cruisers

But what does it mean in foiling?
Freeride: same?
Freestyle: strapless tricks?

2 types of freestyle in hydrofoil : strapless and bigair
Stéphane goffinet in France IS a Monster in strapless foil freestyle https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_ ... =634739270

I prefer bigair (i don't have flatspot at Home)

You must be a twin tipper :D and you can only compare a TT kiteboard to another TT support (I can only think of wakeboarding).

Kite foiling is and should only be compared to kite surf, strapped or strapless. Wave, freestyle or freeride/no style.
