NAIL THE TACK


We've collaborated with our friends over at Progression to bring you episode six of 'KiteSOFAing', their popular 'lockdown' inspired series of tutorial videos. Exclusively released in this issue, the focus of this episode centres on the most important element in successfully nailing your surfboard tacks: the kite movement. This kite skill is directly relatable to foil tacking, too. Watch the intro video from Rob Claisse below and then each of the smaller section chapters that break down the elements into key stages. Rider: @DannyMorrice
