9 FREESTYLE TRICKS
Walk the Dog
Walking the Dog is one of the most fun and creative moves on the water. And don’t worry, you don’t need a dog to pull it off ;) just your wing and a few basic skills, yew!
Walk the Dog Tack
This move is the natural progression from Walking the Dog. If you want to learn one of the most laid-back ways to tack, get the hang of this one and style away.
Heelside Jibe Ducked
Moving your wing up and over to the upwind side before going into the jibe, looks pretty darn cool and helps to maintain speed after changing direction.
Toeside Jibe Ducked
Just like the Heelside Jibe Ducked, this trick requires you to duck underneath your wing before going into the jibe. It looks super stylish and when executed well, it ensures the wing is well powered once you come out of your jibe.
This trick is one of the most fun ways to jibe that makes you stand out from the crowd by passing the wing behind your back whilst carving through your jibe.
Ducked Toeside Jibe Wingspin
Spice up your ducked toeside jibe with a wingspin. This move looks epic and perfectly shows the endless possibilities of wing foiling.
If you already have your duckjibe dialled, try this fun and progressive version of it that adds a 540-degree wing rotation.
Well, just when you thought you already have the coolest tricks in your bag, check out the Cowboy Jibe. Trust us, this trick will have you standing out no matter who’s winging around you, even in a field of pros.
360 Back to Wing
This is a fairly advanced carving manoeuvre that requires complete control over your foil and wing. Originating from windsurfing, it feels great to master it and it looks super hot too!
5 Jump Tricks
As one of the most advanced and spectacular aerial manoeuvres in wing foiling, the Backflip is also one of the most dangerous ones. Thus, please make sure you have other advanced jumps on lock before attempting it plus wear protective gear.
Frontside 180 Bodyspin (Ducked)
Add to your bag of transitions the super stylish Frontside 180 Bodyspin. It’s well worth the effort to nail this one!
Straight Air Melon Grab
Across many board sports, the Melon Grab is without a doubt one of the best-looking grabs. And the greatest news about it: Holding the grab and tweaking it to the max isn’t nearly as hard as you might think!
Table Frontside 360 Bodyspin
If you want to add some new exciting body spin variations to your regular spins, try the Table Frontside 360 Bodyspin. It looks cool and we promise you, you’ll love the feeling of it!
If you froth on strong winds and going big, the Pushloop will without a doubt become one of your favourite moves. As long as you got the Frontside 360 nailed first, there’s nothing standing in your way to send it with this trick
