Learn to Foil - Video Course
« on: October 05, 2020, 10:36:10 AM »
Hi,

I made a Learn to Foil video course with detailed tutorials showing and explaining how to foil.

Here is the main course page:
https://clayisland.com/learn-to-foil/

And here is the signup page:
https://clayisland.com/membership-account/membership-levels/

I dedicated years to capturing foil video footage and breaking down the fundamentals of foiling and what works and why it works. 

This summer I have been doing the same with wing foiling and have been adding wing specific video tutorials.

I see this as a living course and am adding more tutorials as foiling and winging are continuing to evolve.

Here is short video from the course just for the Standupzone, I explain the 3 axis of foiling: Pitch, Roll, and Yaw:



Thank you, and I welcome all feedback on what you like about the course, how to improve, and what you want to see more of.
Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.

Here is another just for the Standupzone video from the Learn to Foil course - Tip Catch - see how we catch the wing tips in the water and what we can do prevent and recover. 

This a condensed brief version, the full wing handling for beginners tutorial series can be seen here:

Thanks!

Good pointers Clay, beginners will definitely benefit from that advice.

...I think windsurfers, like myself, try too hard to hold the wing like a windsurfing sail and drop the tip into the water rather than holding hand aloft and above your head as in your videos.  I know that now, but when first learning I was digging in my tips all the time.
