Re: Tack, what to concentrate on in the first attempts

I noticed two things:
- starting to carve the board upwind much later made me get further
- I noticed that at some point in time while concentrating on the board I stop steering the kite. I need to concentrate on this and to support take the front hand off the bar.

Re: Tack, what to concentrate on in the first attempts

so in summary the key points which have been pointed out by several is:

- concentrate on board
- carry good board speed
- carve hard but not too early (in fact I think this is my problem)
- pull on the bar to take weight off the board

Tack, what to concentrate on in the first attempts

Hi,

I have seen and read plenty of tutorials but my first attempts were really terrible. Probably nobody would have guessed what I was trying to do.

Can anyone tell me what one or two things I should concentrate on initially ?

Thanks up front!

Re: Wind range and gusts - beginner question

I had similar doubts not that long ago and can relate to your concern. You may want to invest in a board which will allow you to plane and stay upwind with your smaller kite until you learn more about kite behavior at the limit. It is not a good idea to take the risk and no fun either. Lateron with ...

Re: Medium to Big jumps with surfboard

Thanks for pointing me to the Spleene Zone. Could be an interesting option in the future if not too expensive.

(As pointed out by some of the posters, eventually the surbiard will break. I hope it to be rather later than sooner)
