I tried yesterday to keep the board on my feet on the pre-waterstart position, but one issue I had is that the recoil of my Cabrinha Overdrive bar was getting rubbed and cought on the rail of the board. I think this will damage the rail of the board in the long run. What do others with a similar bar do?
Anyone with a similar bar that can offer some advise?

The dilemma of board recovery is a decision scale from body-dragging (best option), Go-Joes (good for distressing when learning), other kiters (hit and miss), taking a risk on the tide or waves doing the job (very hit and miss) then the heresy of reel leashes (expect prison if seen in daylight)....don’t mention, the reel. I mentioned it once and I think I got away with it.

Good luck and have fun.
Unrepentable total Blasphemy !

Toby time for a 1000 yr ban haa haa :cool2: caught mentioning the reel. :cool2:
