How to start SupFoil?
First of all, starting out in foil requires a minimum of technique and control. This is why it is advisable to start foiling in SUPFoiling. Indeed, the paddle board is larger and more stable than a Kitefoil or Surffoil board. Although this practice is accessible to all, we advise to have a good base in SUPsurfing. It is complicated to start directly with a foil. This practice requires a lot of accuracy, especially in the positioning of the centre of gravity. Moreover, it can be dangerous if the right actions are not taken.
If you want to start alone, we advise you to choose very soft waves with little power. Also avoid crowded surf spots to avoid conflicts on the water. Ideally, it is worth taking courses to learn how to practiceespecially to get over the apprehension of falling on the kite and to understand how to master the height of flight.
