The next video in Kitefoiling Volume 1 Collection is released and ready to watch, and this week it’s the all-important Stages of Learning to Hydrofoil. Better yet it’s a free video to watch on the Progression website or download it in the Progression App today.

Why is this Video Important?

For a long time, kiters have been a little lost as to the best way to learn to kitefoil and understandably as there is a lot to consider:

  1. Am I a good enough kiteboarder?
  2. What equipment do I need?
  3. What are the best conditions to learn in?
  4. What should I learn first?
  5. Do I just try and get up straight onto the foil?
  6. I end up a long way upwind, how do I get back downwind?
  7. What about turning around?

Do some of these sound familiar? If they do then this videos is going to show you the correct path for learning to Kitefoil. It’s not going to teach you how but it will point you in the right direction and keep you heading that way, with clear goals to achieve at each stage.

Each Stage gives you an overview of what you will need to master and then 3-4 Aims which you need to be able to perform before you should move on to the next stage. This is particularly important for “Stages 1 – Off the Foil” and “Stage 2 – Rise and Glide”, both of which set the groundwork for everything you will do in foiling and if you have patience, work through these in order, you will learn faster overall.

The Progression Kitefoiling Volume 1 Collection then offers you the actual instruction you need to learn all these skills, covering everything across these 5 stages:

Stage 1: Off the Foil Getting out on the Water
Riding & Control: Off the Foil
Stage 2: Rise and Glide Riding & Control: Rise and Glide
Stage 3: Foiling Upwind Riding & Control: Foiling Upwind
Stage 4: Foiling Downwind Riding & Control: Foiling Downwind
Stage 5: First Gybes First Gybes – Off the Foil

* The Riding 7 Control and First Gybes videos are due for release in July 2018

You can watch the first three minutes below to get a taster but the 5 key stages are in the full video exclusive to the Progression website and app.
