Pooly, to the world of kiting welcome!!!.
I have a good look over your postings and i can't see a lot wrong meself just a couple of minor tweaks here and there but your not to know that.
Firstly, i wouldnt have left the board with that old dear for starters, she could have tripped up. I would have tied the blue rope around her secure like and then u could have picked the board up no problem.
When u do get on the board the string in the middle is called a donkey dick and good reason. Basically you need to secure this firmly around ur scrotum -its ur centre of gravity - hence the name.
Try and get an old dear to take some pics of you in action some time.
Happy kiting bud. Oh and see you on another forum sometime. What do u think of the avatar?
