I have seen and experienced the same thing as kitegirls, having the right foil can make a big difference.Rojbrown wrote: ↑Fri Jul 03, 2020 4:26 pmIn a different thread (Armstrong vs Axis) advice was a different foil would Not allow for rapid progression such as this. I'm stuck in touch down gybe mode. For me that's the current and elusive goal. Yes, time on the water is probably the main limitation. Any feedback on equipment (specifically foil) to accelerate to this skill. Thanks!!
I think the problem with your question in the axis versus Armstrong foil thread is that you were asking about a couple of foils that there isn’t a huge experience base on.
might be a wonderful foil for gybing.Riding a Ke Nalu 580 foil which I've enjoyed (1084cm2).
If you are touching down you could try a bigger kite, that should give you a bit more power and lift in the turn.
If you come out of a turn fast you will tend lift up.
You might just need a bit more wind or commit the kite more to the turn.
You could try a smaller board. Smaller boards will react faster in pitch and might help you correct faster.
You could try a different foil, one that gives better lift at a higher angle it will let you keep the board up at a slower speed.
You could try a longer mast and start higher in the turn.
