Learning How To Carve


Learning how to carve in windsurfing is an essential prerequisite for planing through that perfect race gybe, bottom turn, or carve tack. All moves that probably are pretty high up on most of our to-do lists. Unlocking new moves can be challenging, that’s why our windsurfing tips are here to help.

But what does it actually mean to carve properly? It means leaning in, committing to your turns and driving your board over its rails.


Here Are The Top Tips For Learning How To Carve Like A Pro:

  • Lean into the turn.
  • When leaning in, make sure to drive through the knees instead of leaning down with your upper body.
