I say buy a $100 used surfboard and ride it til it breaks (maybe a season, maybe less). By then you will now what kind of b...

Re: Stance ?

... but most average surfers tend to keep to their preferred stance, and ride either frontside or backside depending on whether the wave is breaking left or right, we can mix it up ... Most average surfers??? Besides few "unicorns" like Jeff Clark or Todd Smith can you name many ambidextrous surfer...

Re: Disadvantages of wave kites

Translation: I have never learned to kite strapless :roll: Straps suck ! They get in the way and when on a surfboard you need to re poison your feet all the time. with straps you're screwed.
