Baltic Chop

Baltic Chop - a coldwater kitesurf session

The wind gods blessed us with multiple days of strong northeast winds in the new year at the Baltic Sea already.
These build baltic chop "waves" and bring icy temperatures, so grap a hot tea and enjoy the ride.

Re: what are you workin on? kitefoil strapless freestyle progression

@TomW don't worry have learned most manouvers in chaotic baltic sea chop conditions at my local beach, that most kiters, don't even consider a spot.

Re: what are you workin on? kitefoil strapless freestyle progression

@Trent hink: impressive indeed. for getting up I need a bit more power of the kite. Do you get up from a sideways sitting position (pushing up the backfoot?) or what is your technique? @Cefirmeza: the other way around is also weird, straps blocking the perfect spots, where you want to move your feet...
