The first post seemed very clear about this, it is a 180 degree carve we are talking about, from heelside, no footswitch.
Working for her on regular, sometimes, but losing power when toeside, and never on the goofy side.
This. If you don’t feel comfortable to do it on a TT and SB you will have hard time to make it on the foil. Master it on a SB and it will be much easier. You need to commit your self to lean against pull of the kite (not to follow) and sometimes it can feel scary.
My best advice is to commit.kitegirls wrote: ↑Tue Mar 10, 2020 10:06 amIll try and pay more attention to this. I feel that I am. I just feel unbalanced and out of control turning and especially toe-side.
Surfboard training honestly worked wonders for me I highly recommend itPeter_Frank wrote: ↑Wed Mar 11, 2020 12:20 pmTrue, but assume it is an experienced rider.
One thing I forgot to mention:
If possible, avoid to ride TT or Waveboards while learning to carve a hydrofoil !!!
Will improve learning and you will get it so much faster, and able to repeat it also.
As TT/Waveboard riding works completely different in this regard, turning, so you will destroy most of what you learn, if changing back and fourth.
Take time ONLY on your hydrofoil for a longer period, and you will nail it one day
When learned on your backbone, you can switch boards easily again - but when learning, it is counter productive and drags the learning curve to "forever" for many
