Hello
That is a nice movie but... as all others only says you need to pump, after that no instructions.
I asked the guy that sold it to me and actually uses this gear and his response was to be gentle on it and the foiling just happens. A kiter told me the same.
By the way looks like you can attach this beast to a power box as well, you have to get an adapter that spreads the pressure. I got mine at Windance.
Mine is attached to a JP. So far did not fall off.
I will bring it to the Cape and you are welcome to try, it does not look fragile.

Glad to hear you're having fun. Just make sure to hide it when it's low tide!

Hi Alena,

We did an info session with Bruno Andre from AHD last fall, and broadcast it here:

It is a bit gear-centric but there is technique peppered in, especially towards the end at about 35 or 40 minutes in if you want to skip ahead.

Bruno has been foiling for ten years now and as such is a wealth of information and experience!
