Re: Finless in the waves.

Im attempting to ride a strapless skim in what passes for waves in welly.. actually riding the wave is really tricky with the kite pulling your edge around, its a delicate balance and i've got lots of space to improve. Its also loads of fun :thumb:

Except that kite surfing is more difficult and takes more skill than paddle surfing. You act like surfing is harder than kiting lol.
