In this episode Christian and Karine from CKPerformance Clinics guide you through your first tacks.

Today’s the day, Ladies and Gents! Your first foray into the world of tacking. If you’re not sure what a tack is, think of it as changing direction 180 by steering up into, and then through the wind. It’s the opposite of the gybe. The tack has a few advantages over the gybe, in that if you’re trying to make ground upwind, you won’t lose the precious meters that you’ve made when you turn.

There’s no better place to start your tacking journey than off the foil in light wind. This will give you a chance to get the fundamentals mastered, and although the feet won’t necessarily be doing the same as when you’re tacking on the foil, the positioning, the awareness, along with your upper body, hand and wing movements will get you practised and ready for the foiling version.
