Yeah have to agree, I would love to be able to windsurf at that level! But I'm lucky that kitesurfing can make a novice look good! My mate was over in Maui a few months back and caught Robby Naish windsurfing over at Hookipa. He was chatting after and apparently he still loves to get out on the wate...

I've found for me that bows are probably going to be better for myself. I found adapting to a switchblade was cinch and in 10mins I was jumping just as high with way more hangtme than my nitros.

My 04 Nitro's are going to be sold and a set of Xbow's are going to be ordered! I felt right at home, jumping and riding wa...
