Re: Surf wax recommendations

I've moved on from wax though and use wax pads (or whatever you want to call them). They're basically rubber (plastic) stickers with grip on them and I haven't l...

Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

I'd say the best thing is starting with a kite that drifts well as-is. I find you end up fighting a bad drifting kite in the waves, but a kite that drifts well mostly stays out of your way and lets you focus more on the wave.
