This has nothing to do with electricity or Electrodynamic propulsion.

I am asking can a flat surface of diamegetic material be made into a sail similar to a solar sail to displace and repel through of the Earths magnetic field to maintain orbit? Or would adding a diametric layer be added to a solar sail or cell material for additional propulsion from magnetic fields? In other words is Solar Magnetic Surfing the Earth's Magnetosphere Plausible?

The orbit in red below would follow the polar cusp in relation to the Sun. enter image description here
