backwinding
« on: August 10, 2022, 06:32:14 PM »
I just started recently riding backwinded for prolonged periods. This is a really fun sensation. I am trying to get to the point where I can go upwind backwinged same as normal. Any backwinders out there that can help me get upwind? I saw some sickbirds in the Gorge going upwind backwinged. Thanks. Senditbrö!!!

Get your speed up some, you might need to pump the foil a little bit so that you can get in front of the wing. Think to keep the wing at your back hip and then you can steer up wind as the wing pushes you from behind. You'll eventually be able to lean against the leading edge as you go up wind.
