It was watching some chap doing really slick transitions from his heel edge then onto his toe edge, then carving out of the turn (in massive arc's with a hugh kicker coming off the board), which made me want to kite surf. Really cool to watch.
Don't want to be rude, but when I was spectating, the "experts" looked out of control some of the time, and of course, all of the tricks had to be done in front of everyone, by the shore, in the shallow water. Dangerous, and not that impressive.
Still, I can't even get on my toe edge without face planting, so who am I to talk. Those carving gybes seem a long way off
