I didn't have the feeling that my kite was to big. Something was wrong with the backside.
Maybe my body was to much backwards or maybe I didn't edge enough.
When you do windsurfing you have a catapult then you fly over the nose of the board.
This is opposite. I fly over the backside from the board.

What fins do you use?

(what is the shape, cant, sweep?)

It seems to me that fins with more sweep are easier to control in higher winds, but maybe not as sharp and might not have as good upwind ability and speed once you learn to control them?

As far as I can see the fin shapes matter to an almost ridiculous level of detail.

I go out for the third time. Still have problem with the board. It feel strange to ride a big board on the rail. When the wind is not more then 18 knots the board ride OK for me.
