Flat board on a water? Goes against kitefoil wisdom of keeping board on edge... Speaking of kitefoiling, for those riders, whose water start woos are several seasons behind, flat board on the water water start would seem not impossible. I will try it next time (with big board, of course).

Tested flat board waterstart and failed. The board on the video is so wide and buoyant that it can support the weight of the rider. 20 liters kiteboard can't.

I do both sport: windfoil/kitefoil/surf-supfoil
I tried the surfwing.

I do love both the 3 first sports and the windfoil is a very nice additionnal sport:easy, fast, simple
In fact I choose my tool depends on the weather, when the wind is very gusty and tend to fail, I mainly windfoil, like this I can Always go back on the back (no sink)

Here is a video of strapless windfoil I did this Week. It is an awesome sport (even more since I tried the surfwings!)
