Improve your Kitesurfing - 3 Tips for the Heel to Toe Powered Carve

Postby robclaisse » Fri Dec 06, 2019 4:12 pm

Here are 3 tips for a powered heel to toe carve :

1. You need to enter with speed, so drop your kite low and edge hard against it
2. Carve hard - pull hard to whip the kite across the wind window, get your weight low, sheet out and drive off your back foot
3. Follow the kite - in the second part of the turn, sheet in, allow your weight to come forward onto your front leg

To understand why each of these is important, along with further tips and common mistakes, check out the full Heel to Toe Powered Carving Turn video, part of Progression's Kitesurfing Volume 1 Collection. ... turns-h2tp
