Summer of the Wing

Summer of the WingerThe first summer of winging, in a year of deep sorrow, brought me great joy.  Uncertainty, chaos, fear, AND super super stoked!  Riding the wind has been around forever, and yet this is the first year I really dedicated myself to learning how, or winging is so appealing the only choice for me, was YES!  Seeing all my friends either join me in wing foiling or show a palpable curiosity in this new winging adventure, is proof for me that this is special.  Who says "no thanks" to endless waves?

One of the Best Days Yet – Winging has Improved my Surf Foiling

One of the Best Days YetAfter 6 months of Wing Foiling I can noticeably feel and see an improvement in my surf foiling.  Ballpark this spring and summer of 100 wing sessions averaging 10 miles each is at least 1000 miles of foiling!  Best guess is that the previous 3 years of surf foiling I had around 500 miles on the foil.  The old saying, "Time on the water...", well time on the foil is huge for skills and mastery.

This video is of one of the best surf foiling days I have had yet.  I had 3 peaks all to myself, 300-500 yards rides, s-turns all the way to the beach!

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).
