I only did the swim of shame once with my 5m Peak, definitely not an experienced self-rescuer-swimmer! But yeah, the goal was to roll the lines all the way to the kite, then make a small pack around the bar and tucking in all stray bridles. Then put that package lengthwise under the tummy/chest on the board, and start paddling in. That wasn't a super fast progress, but that was progress nonetheless. Note that I'm using a 36L 4'8 Zeeko Scrambler, which is a prone foil board, so kind of designed for paddling. Lower volume and shorter would both reduce any paddling ability. That board is my "contingency plan" for riding the Peaks.bitxopalo wrote: ↑Tue May 17, 2022 11:44 pmHave tried again yesterday .
I was with my low volume board and peak 5m, on a very caotic wind before a storm.
The kite ended on the water so I packed and tried to swim (it was no more than 50m)... I am unable to do it, cannot swim with the kite in between board and me. Tried everything.
So, is there a video where I can see how it must be done?
