STANDING ON THE KITEBOARD
The day offers little wind, but with the right equipment and the right technique …
You finally stand up and start riding … the magic moment …
Your stance it is very important, front leg must kept stretched and keep the right amount of pressure on your back leg
Unavoidably looking to the kite, I hope you will not forget how to proceed with the kite bar on your hands to manage to be able to keep going …
The wind lulls doesn’t help much and you must be really able to find the power on your kite
But the magic kite ride doesn’t end and you manage to deal with the lull and keep your ride towards your left side of the wind window
Switch your stance towards your right and pass the kite to the other side of the wind window
… and now towards your left, totally concentrated in all what happens and still looking for enough power on your kite
getting upwind and riding confidently, not bad for a 2 days kite lessons, isn’t it?
stretch also your back leg, apply pressure and stop the board to slow speed
So, you are again where you started your first waterstart
and … congratulations Vanessa, you are now one more kitesurfer girl in the world.
