Wing Handling for Beginners – Wing Foil Tutorials

Wing Handling for Beginners - Wing FoilingThis series has many videos showing how to handle the wing for foil winging.  Starting with the basics, on land and then in the water, of picking up the wing and turning it right side up and finishing at the point of ready to get up on the foil.  I show and explain various ways of holding the wing, flipping the wing over, and moving forward and turning around without catching the wingtips.  I show a few knee starts of getting up on the foil, focusing mainly on the wing handling (I will make a more in depth series on knee starts and getting up on the foil).

Tether to Stay Upwind – Wing Foil for Beginners

Wing Foil Upwind ToolA simple and cheap tether to allow anyone to stay upwind while learning to handle the wing. 

Only takes a few minutes to setup and remove without needing a new board or additional fins.

I spent hundreds of dollars on 3 piece adjustable paddles, and wasted countless hours paddling, walking, and biking back to my luanch point. I could have just used a tether, which I already had in the garage. I am certain I would have figured out the basics of wing handling on day one if I knew this simple tool to stay upwind.
