    Hello everyone,
    Since I have been riding hydrofoils, I have been able to learn a lot of new tricks by watching your videos that were posted here or to the old foilfreaks.com. Thanks for sharing!

    Lack of Newbie Teching Videos:
    While I teach friends and neighbors to foil, there are very few introductory videos to point them to study and they are far from ready for some of the more advanced tricks. I also know there are people buying used hydrofoils that have never actually ridden one before. So, over the past few weeks, I have been working on putting together some introductory videos that I uploaded to youtube as a short series of tutorials.

    To help build the sport, I am interested in doing additional beginner hydrofoil videos (floaters, skidders etc.) so I am open to your ideas. Let me know.
    These are my first videos - so be kind.

    these are great, thanks for taking the time Cayce, I'm sure others like me that are about to take the plunge into foiling will appreciate these kind of hint filled videos.

    Good work Cayce! Beginners should look through Cayce's videos and post questions on this thread for help with the beginner foiling information and techniques.

    I had a dream last night that I landed my first invert! damn it was pretty!
    Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!
    Life is too short and friends are too few!

    If our thoughts and hopes are elsewhere, it is impossible to set our faces steadily toward the work required of us.

    I know the feeling. I have been doing fronts in my sleep for the past few years.
