THE SPORT OF FOILING

`

The foiler controls the foil’s axis of roll by leaning from one side to the other to change the foil’s center of gravity. This is made possible by the fact that the carriage rolling down the zip line can roll around the zip line in addition to just rolling down it.

The foil’s axis of yaw is controlled by the foiler swinging their hips and footing. The foiler’s feet can be in binding or not depending if they want to ride their foil more like a snowboard or a surfboard.
