Learning to Kitefoil - 3 Tips for the Rise and Glide - How-to Video

Postby robclaisse » Wed Nov 13, 2019 10:28 am

These are the 3 key tips that will take you from riding off the foil and allow you to rise and glide in control. If you want to understand more about why these are important then check out our in-depth Rise and Glide video or the full Kitefoiling Volume 1 Collection.

  • Direct the kite up and sheet in, placing the kite high in a stable position for later
  • Move your upper body back towards the tail of the board, lower body staying where it is
  • As the board comes off the water - knees point forwards to level the board
Just remember than these 3 key techniques build on top of a good stance riding off the foil, get that nailed first and then learning to rise up onto the foil is far more straight forward.
