Re: Goofy versus regular surf riding

Backside riding a wave with a kite , it is very often underrated and i don't know why ... Doing it with style it's more technical and implies more marked movements of your upper body ..

Re: How to place a front pad on a surfboard?

Re: Goofy versus regular surf riding

It's all about Frontside vs Backside riding in a rigth/left hander instead of goofy vs regular ...imho Frontside better for face and turn allowing for laid out top turns or powerful cutbacks Backside for holding power, fast down the line riding, boosting airs ...less powerful bottoms and squarer top...

Re: ozone Zephyr V5 vs airush Ultra 17m, anyone tested both?

For TT , add Cabrinha Contra to the equation , I'm almost sure my 15m has the same low end as a Zeph 17m....
