I wish there were wing foil lessons when I was learning to foil, would have saved me a lot of money and frustration. Once I figured out what gear and conditions I needed, success and progression came quickly. I made this Learn to Foil Video Course to help everyone put themselves in the right conditions on the right gear and have fun learning this amazing new adventure we call wing foiling.
Harnesses are a great way to point further upwind and rest the arms and prolong a fun session. Being attached to a powerful wing up high on a tall foil can also be intimidating and lead to a scary fall. In this video tutorial series I show and explain various harnesses and hooks, both metal spreader bars and hooks, and the ding free hooks. I also show how to hook in and hook out in various wind strengths, and on bigger 6 and 8 meter wings. I also go over what can go wrong and how to protect oneself and stay safe.
Flagging out the wing and riding the bumps downwind is the focus of this video series. Covering what to look for and reading the water, techniques to keep riding, and gear selection. These video tutorials were filmed in the San Francisco Bay and Delta. 12 videos.
Folks often ask me who in the San Francisco Bay Area offers lessons, repairs, where to get boards, foils, wings and who has boats or electric foils.
So this page is a list of resources that I know of in the San Francisco Bay Area.
This tail wing video tutorial shows the different tail wing shapes and how they fly. I explain what the different shapes and sizes do, and how they feel when foiling. Also how a beginner can choose the best tail for learning and then what tail to move onto as they progress. Finishing with some talk of bolt patterns and switching between different brands of tails.
