Learn to progress your kitesurfing from your sofa!

Episode 3: The Foot Change – to tie in with the release of our new Foiling Foot Changes coaching video, today Rob is going to run you all through the body movements for the foot switch – whether you are riding a foil or surfboard. These are the drills we use with our coaching clients down the beach, so its perfect for you in your living room! Build up muscle memory ready for when you get back on the water. The body movement is just one part, the kite and board/foil is equally as important and you can see how they all fit together in Progression’s full Foiling Gybes: The Foot Changes video.

For all you kitesurfers, the Carving Turns Collection covers the relevant foot change in each of the videos.


Email us your questions for the next episode – tricks you are struggling with, mistakes you are making, or anything you think we might be able to help with. Send over any video clip or record a short video asking your question.

Kitesofaing is Progression’s new web series, offering constructive techniques you can practice at home during the COVID-19 lockdown (though nothing to stop you carrying on when things go back to normal). The plan is for two videos each week:

  • The Weekend video will be focused on “doing”, activities you can try and practice at home
  • The Mid-week video will cover a range of topics and focus more on better understanding through detailed theory briefings and question and answer sessions – submit your questions to Rob at kitesofaing@progression.me
