This video series shows wind direction and how to wing foil in the direction we want to go. Using animation I created a map of Crissy Field in San Francisco and show the various ways a winger will get pushed depending on the wind direction and which way the current is flowing. I go through the four seasons showing the changing wind directions, and show what the wind does as storms pass through. This information can be applied to any beach in the world.
Larger wings have made wonderful advances and are now enjoyable to use and session savers for when the wind gets really light.
I found the first couple generations of bigger wings (6+ meter) to be hard on my body and difficult to manage, the F-one Strike CWC design changed this for me.
This video series shows how to foil on our weak or unnatural side. Tips and video breakdowns on how to progress through the challenge of flying straight and staying on foil long enough to complete a reach. The first ten or so sessions were very frustrating for me and no advice helped. I hope to change that with this tutorial and get everyone foiling with either left or fight foot forward. There are 5 videos in this series.
In this video series I show and explain tips and drills to learn to jibe on a wing foil board. When I was learning riding toe side felt very foreign, and so I go in to detail how to get the feel needed to complete a jibe. I show and explain how to work on the parts of the jibe so we can put the pieces together and have success. There are 11 videos in this series.
Lower volume boards are amazing, the swing weight drops, and maneuverability and control go way up as does the fun. The board I am using in these videos is close to my body weight: Liters and Kilograms. My ability to luff the wing and go downwind riding bumps has increased significantly, and I am getting amazing rides that I am so stoked on. All around the benefits are tremendous, the only challenge was learning to get to my knees, stand up, and then get up on foil. This video series shows in close up frame by frame detail how to get up and fly on a small board. There are 18 videos in this series.
This video series shows how to ride a hydrofoil and breach a foil tip without crashing. When turning while surf foiling or wing foiling the outer foil tip comes up and can pierce the water surface. Often this causes ventilation where the whole foil wing looses lift and we fall with a painful faceplant. This video series shows the 3 ways that I know of to breach a foil tip and keep riding, to successfully pierce the surface.
