For all you budding wannabe foilers that have not quite got there yet, Rou Chater from iKSURF has documented his learning curve on the iKSURF blog. Encouragingly, Rou seems to be struggling at first (like the rest of us) but as it should be, after a few solid hours has made significant progress and looks well on the way to cracking it. Follow the blog to see how he gets on and brace yourself for your next purchase. Foiling is the answer this summer. Instead of a lighter wind kite, get yourself a Liquid Force Foil Fish! It’s the same cost as a new kite and will get you out in very light conditions. Any questions on the foil or where to get your hands on them, call Andy Steel on
