Time to learn the wing.
Wing handling basics are what we need to learn on land before we go into the water. Flipping the wing over is what we have seen is the hardest part of wind winging. Enjoy walking the wing up and down the beach. Sheet the wing in and out to learn how to pressure the sail. Learning to work your hands better on the available straps or handles. The sail is strong and powerful enjoy that sensation. Master this step with your own gear that you've purchased at the shop.
To the water skipper!
It's windy, let's go wing surf. Adding water to the equation really adds some extra work. Its ok because we are using a very large board. Riding back and forth and maintaining your upwind position is the goal we have here. We call it wind vane when you position the sail forward or aft to help direct the board in which way you'd like to go.
How to pump up to Foil
Pumping to get up on foil is a use full tool to get the. board to release from the water. With a little forward momentum and pressure on the wing you'll be able t become more efficient by pumping. With the right technique the board increase Speed and start to release from the water tension. Also do this technique as you start to do your first transitions. When you feel sluggish and your foil starts to show signs of stalling, pump a bit and it may just keep you foiling long enough to keep going.
