... I suggest we share the tricks we found fun to try even , if not useful for anything;

This summer I tried this : touching the water with my back & shoulders : seems quite impossible at first sight but actually at the high end of your kite, it is not that difficult !



have fun ... and fight against straight lines :thumb:

Foil slides/grinds

First saw Oyvind doing it riding without a stab, but happened on it trying to just get used to breaching and recovering while toeside.

It's now a reliable little move on the breaking crest of a piece of chop.

Pretty sure its not even noticeable from more than a few meters away, but it feels great to break out the foil and ride away and it captures a little of the surfboard off the top type feel because the board is actually sideways to the direction of travel.....pretty novel for foiling.

Thanks Oynvind.
