Pronation or supination ?

Postby bragnouff » Mon Jun 08, 2020 3:47 am

What's the verdict when it comes to wingsurfing?
Front hand palm facing up (supination) or down(pronation) or bit of both (not at the same time!). We'll be assuming back hand is always in pronation, (even if I've seen weirdos using supination on the back hand... while kiting!).

My windsurfing habits were to mostly ride in supination, and use pronation ahead of a turn (or on a wave), and so far, it seems to be similar for winging.
How about you?
Are the Y handles on some models more geared towards supination?

The very first time I flew a wing, I was shown front hand palm up and I have done it that way since. I may try the alternative but it has worked really well for me and feels natural.
