First go on my new Groove Skate today, 8mtr kite, 633 Onda set up,
takeoff was instant up,although I needed to point downwind slightly more to feel the benefit of the lack of stiction this little board offers.
Any fears of nosediving in waves or failed flying gybes were quickly dismissed,
However, as the board weighs as much as a paper bag full of fresh air , it delivered a ride that was , exciting, nervous , and twitchy, and it took 4 trips back to the beach to adjust the mast position to even up the foot pressure, then a few miles more to eventually feel like I had the measure of this little green bundle of fun,
Tomorrow is Moses wing trial day and GPS speed logging along with upwind angle measurements, heelside and toeside
It's a hard life.
I honestly did not expect there to be such a big difference in feeling from my Moses T60, but there is, and there is wind and waves forecast for the last 7 days of my stay here at Flag beach, so one thing is guaranteed,
It will be fun
