those 100cm wide raceboards are such dogs in chop, they nearly shake your legs off. Not fun! They are made to go fast if you aren't allowed to use a hydrofoil in a race not for comfort.

Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

Seems like a pain. w Just in general, and this would hold for any kite. Leaving the valves in for a...

Re: How To Self-Land a Kite in High Winds
