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.

Wing Foiling Videos from my First 70 plus sessions

Wing Foiling Up RiverLooking back on my first handful of sessions, the hope of ripping around the bay on a wing foil seemed pretty far out of my reach.  What gave me inspiration was how intuitively and quickly I learned the basics of flying a wing.  Then my confidence plummeted as I tried to apply these skills in rough water.  I kept going, listening to my gut as to what I needed to try next, on my 9th session I figured out what I needed and had success.

Steep Take offs and “Noserider” Take Offs

Steep Take OffSteep take offs can be scary and dangerous on a foil, and also super fun, exciting, and satisfying.

Getting hucked over the falls, face planting, and then getting run over by the foil is not fun.

In these videos I show how I make steep drops in overhead powerful waves, the technique works for me in any size waves.  I also use this technique on downwinders and wing dinging. The second technique I show is how to catch waves that seem uncatchable or that barely break.
