Wing-Surf waterstart short board

How To: Waterstart on a small board


  1. Make sure it’s windy, you need power
  2. Get in your straps with the wing on the leash
  3. Once in, put the wing above you
  4. Power up to bring your body directly above the foil
  5. Stay crouched whilst you find your balance
  6. Once stable, start pumping the wing
  7. Extend your legs as you start to move and get pumping..
  8. Pump until you are up and away!

Incase that wasn’t crystal clear, here’s a clip of Titouan Galea (Extremely talented young French rider) showing you how it’s done! He’s using the F-One Swing with the Rocket board.
