I learnt on an early Hi-fly 555 with non retractable centre board by having both feet planted on the board (to scissor it and hold it steady) while learning how to hold and control the angle of the ...

To me, bigger sails are closer to boat sailing. So good for long distance locked-in, travelling type of sailing. I crossed a 5-mile wide lake with my Formula it was lots of fun landing on the other ...

Probably easiest to learn with sails under 6 meters. Clearing the clew can be a challenge with bigger sail when learning to water start.

Water between waist & chest deep helps as well. Uppe ...
