Tried it today - tacking
really small waveboard !
Feet just in front of the rear and the front footstrap.
Head fast up while still planing.
Important: Keep the kite powered all the time so you wont sink on the board - but dont turn it in the other direction yet (as you'll lose upwards pull then).
When direct in the wind - switch your feet (jump your feet works best).
Right now your board dont have any speed at all for just an instant - but the kitepull keeps you "weightless" on the surface so to speak....
The board is now turned fast in the other direction, while the kite is driven in the same direction.
And then you are planing away, and can just pop into your straps again
Only difficulty was, that I did not have any wax or anti slip on the nose - it was totally "icy" when standing with bare feet.
So you needed to have it perfectly balanced, and could easily slip...
And if you got too much power in the kite somehow, you were immediately "history"
But it was possible and great fun - even on this slippery surface
Go out and have a
ball doing it, or trying
