How to: Frontside / Toeside Air
In this week’s episode, Evan Netsch talks us through the steps in strapless kitesurfing with a toeside or frontside air.
“While this certainly is more challenging to jump in flat water, this is something that is best applied to a wave and as a frontside air. In flat water you will be loading off of your toe side edge which is exactly how you will load up for and air while riding frontside (facing the wave) on a wave, most likely in onshore wind conditions. I would also recommend practicing this kiteboarding on a twin tip, as loading your toe side edge on a surfboard without straps is much more challenging and building some muscle memory in straps for this can go a long way.”
