Kitesurfing vs Winging

Postby marlboroughman » Tue Aug 16, 2022 5:47 pm

After only 12 sessions with the wing I found wind range of 17 - 25 miles, normally 9m kite with surfboard, to be more exciting with the wing even compared to kitefoiling on Great Lakes where the real waves start to appear in 25+ miles. Now I'm questioning if in 25+ I would be better off winging safe in swells than taking chances kiting close to shore in waves. What a hell is happening to me? I started winging as a insurance against losing more kite launch sites, but I didn't expect that.
