Thanks for all your answers !Herman wrote: ↑Sat Nov 21, 2020 12:53 pmPersonally I don’t think there is any ideal solution. I only landboard on good ground, if the ground is bad I just take a buggy but I am fortunate to live next to a hard sand beach, bugs have much bigger wheels.
If you check the gap between tyre and foot in various stances you may find you have room to fit a 9in tyre as opposed to the normal 8in (goes on the same hub), which would help a bit and is probably the biggest sensible diameter for MB.
When you get advanced you could take out a shed load of power for what I call pinned to the sky riding, where the kite needs minimal movement to get you airborne and you keep the board speed to a minimum but this is really only an in your dreams suggestion as it is very dangerous and is not a sensible approach to life!
PS I am not sure what you mean by edging! One of the first steps you need make is to be able to break traction and slide to be able to scrub off speed and to turn tightly. Too much traction/grip is not necessarily your friend. Playing with tyre pressure will affect grip level and ride. If you have not learned to slide it is too early to start jumping imho.
