Disclaimer: Not everyone learns according to the same learning curve. This lesson is based on an average student.
Some students will learn faster than others, keep in mind and do not be disappointed if someone is faster or better than you.
For us, responsibility, trust and safety come first and we are always adjust on our lessonplan to that!
Hydrofoiling is the newest hype in the world of kitesurfing, and we are totally hooked! Hovering on the water, without making any sound or spray. It is possible to ride a foil from only 8 knots of wind and you can ride upwind like you never did before. The trick to learn how to hydrofoil is to start with a small foil. We go to a bigger foil step by step until you reach the full 1 meter foil! We use the method of the Slingshot Foil Academy to speed up your learning curve.
We think its amazing, can we get you stoked as well?
For people who want to keep on learning after riding the first 50 meters! During a 2 hour private lesson we will get your skills to a higher level. This lesson is focused on your level of riding and what you want to learn. This includes use of of video material to analyse your riding.
