You are right, but the amount of times I go looking for / rescuing boards while people are body dragging no where near them.. I see this a lot... so I think focus on knowing where it is first then go for bigger 'tacks' when u know/ see it.Havre wrote: ↑Fri Jul 03, 2020 1:03 pmWhy would you do shorter? I can see the point in terms of not losing sight of the board, but wouldn't you lose some height every time you turn?
I agree completely on the bury your body. And stretch. I tend to swim when I am just there, but I'm honestly wondering if that is counter-productive - and that staying low and outstretched is better (just can't help myself when I am just within reach ).
As for kite position I have often wondered about this. Would that be the case riding upwind as well? I still haven't figured out the perfect position if you want to go as much upwind as possible (going upwind is not an issue - just if I'm trying to see how far upwind I can go in shortest possible time). Obviously riding speed comes into it as well so I'm not sure if there is a single answer to it, but knowing there is a lot of people on here that know a lot more about this I thought I would ask. There might be a "physics" explanation to it (I'm sure there is).
I do this, count 10 seconds, turn, count 10 seconds back. You should be upwind of the board by then and should see it.
Yes !!! After having lost my board in the swell, I do the same to keep a mental reference of where should my board be. I just decided to add a trick : i count from 1 to 10, then turn, then from 10 to 0. Then 0 to 10 (without turning), Then turn (or not) and count again 10 to 0.
