LEARN to FLY...
equipment and lesson Introduction
YOUR SAFETY is our PRIORITY.
LET'S GET READY TO FLY
We want to make sure you are comfortable and ready to soar.
Each session consists of introducing the student to this new technology and how to safely use it to create your most optimum experience. Once we’ve introduced the equipment we move onto how to ride.
This will include the 4 basic and FUN steps on how to FOIL.
Foiling from your stomach. Gliding on the board and becoming comfortable with using the hand control and moving across the water while lying on your stomach. Seems simple enough right? Laying flat on your stomach and becoming aware of the hand control and the speed of the board is the first important step in the learning process. Making turns slower then faster while building confidence. This is your first experience of flight over water. Enjoy!
Foiling from your knees. Moving from your Stomach to kneeling on the board and continuing to become aware of how the board, the student and the hand controller work in unison.
Foiling standing up. This is a big step but definitely easily obtainable, once you become more comfortable using the hand control and maintaining your balance this step becomes much easier. If you take your time and stay in the moment you will move quickly to the next level.
Foiling. As your confidence builds you begin to know your boundaries on how fast and high you can go. Once comfortable with moving across the water standing up you can add power to the board and by simply adjusting your weight position and feet locations you begin to FOIL. Your instructor will show you how to build a foundation of foiling techniques to use while learning that will assist you in moving from standing and skipping over the water to consistently Flying over water for long periods of time. You’ve done it.
