THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF KITEFOIL EXPERIENCE VIDEOS WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE INTERESTING STORIES TO TELL OF THEIR ADVENTURES IN THE DISCIPLINE.
You may have benefitted from Rob Claisse’s incredible eye and passion for detail in any number of Progression’s super detailed instructional videos that have been in production since very early in the sport, focused on improving your skills in twin-tip, surf and foil riding. Five years ago Rob became obsessed with kitefoiling and, as you’ll hear in this video, really threw himself into it, pretty much with tunnel vision.
Progression are still producing very insightful technique videos, but Rob has now expanded the company to deliver personal coaching, either remotely through personal 1:1 video clinics, in person at the beach in the UK, or at various camps in different locations around the world (in the absence of pandemics!).
In his younger years, Rob also competed at a high level on the British windsurf racing circuit and, more recently, he also helped the British Kitesports Association write their kite foil training syllabus. His impressive array of kitefoiling skills are obvious, but what we were interested in sharing through this video is insights from Rob’s experience and understanding of how people learn to foil. Rob is a really interesting person to open up this video series which looks at the broadening appeal of kite foiling for those who want to know more.
