Entering and leaving the water
See the places to enter and leave the water and the places where leaving the water may be difficult.
It only takes a few minutes to stop, watch and talk about a new spot. Time assesing can be very well spent and save you a lot of problems.
Wing foiling in lakes
This is a similar scenario to foiling in the sea without concerns over waves.
First assess a new location. See where water entry and exit is possible. Observe what other riders are doing, the routes they are taking, where they set up, enter and exit the water and routes they are navigating.
In case of emergencies
Have an action prepared as to what to do in worst case scenarios. What to do if you kit fails. All exit points from the water. How to get help. The better prepared you are the more you will relax and enjoy yourself.
