1. No. Just learn to fly your existing kite in lighter conditions. As Toby mentioned, if you were trying to fly a 12 in 20-30kts (as a beginner) you were quite overpowered. You should have been on a 9 or so. Don't buy any more equipment until you have taken a couple more lessons.RaviTheJedi wrote: ↑Mon Aug 23, 2021 5:15 pm
1. Should I buy a 5M kite and learn how the kite reacts. But I feel it may not be as productive since 5M kite is going to react differently than 9 or 12m kite.
2. How often do you look at your kite while riding? I am trying to figure out when I will be ready to add the board.
3. When I let go of the bar, should kite automatically stay at 12 O'clock or it can fall on the sides? During the lesson, the kite did not want to stay up and kept falling to the side.
Curios: What is TOK and TOW? I can drive the meaning from sentences, but curious about what the acronym stands for.Herman wrote: ↑Mon Aug 23, 2021 6:49 pmThe most important thing imho for this brain training is TOK and TOW. There is a glitch with this that you have already discovered, you already have some land TOK but soon as you had power on the water the brain said “tilt!” and probably went partially into survival mode. With more TOW you will become more relaxed and fully functioning; you will then realise that actually the kite is no more difficult to control than a trainer.
PS Ask around some old salt may have an old beater 5m tucked away in a shed, get him to demonstrate it for you and it will be a free lesson!
