For example, you are going to surf "One Eye" , which stance would you be happiest using ? (easiest to carve, top turns, bottom turns, or riding it straight) would you ride it, toeside goofy so you are frontside to the wave, or heelside regular so you are backside to the wave. it's a question of whatever gives you the best "surf" feeling at the time.
Then there are the same conditions for us but vice versa. At my homespot the wind and waves usually comes from the right side and I'm goofy. It sound's like iI have to practice more on the regular toesideriding. I suspect that the slack line and bad response when riding with the wave is caused by poorer drift at the Pivot and is quite difficult to correct . Slash is said to have an better drift and be a bit deeper in the window witch maybe gives a bit better drive when I need it, but that's just what I have in mind and hope for Of course, it's my own management of the kite that is the most crucialDirk wrote: ↑Mon Oct 30, 2017 6:50 pmI am regular but riding waves frontside on both tacks. At my home beaches the wind mostly comes from the left, which is not my preferred side. Having windsurfed for a long time I am somewhat used to it. Needs a bit of training to feel more natural. Doing a lot of frontside carving on that side even with a TT helps, so does training it on a skateboard (Carver surfskates or similar are best for this).
I have not noticed any issues with my Pivots, if it does not work properly it is usually my mistake.
Nice carving, the waves were probably bigger than they look on the video, and I think you could use a bit less power in the kite, which might help staying on the wave face ?Pellesurf wrote: ↑Mon Oct 30, 2017 8:59 pmHere is a short clip when I trying to have some fun in the waves at my homespot.
It feels like I'm not reaching the right height against the wind to reach the wave really, with this stance and wind / wave direction
