Step1. You need to launch the WaterSkipper from a dock or a boat in at least 6.5feet(2meters) of water. Hold the WaterSkippers handlebars and lower the large foil down to just above or under the water surface.
Step2. Stand at the edge of the dock with the foot. You are going to push with slightly over the edge. Put your other foot on the WaterSkippers platform. If your foot is not over the edge of the dock, you could slip and you will not get a powerful enough push the WaterSkipper to start. It is recommended that you wear water shoes or sandals.
Step3. Rock forward, and as the WaterSkippers skimmer reaches the water, give you a powerful push off the dock. The small foil will end up under the water. The skimmer will be on top of the water.
Step4. Start jumping! Setting a rhythm to the motion will allow you to move proficiently over the water surface. Jump on the balls of your feet, up on you toes. Stand near the front of the platform to help recover from a stall. Stand back on the platform for more efficiently. If the WaterSkipper starts learning to one side or the other, use your body weight to counterbalance it.
