They will then encounter a problem when the Go Joe implodes or they are testing a board without a Go Joe. I will recommend taking small tacks when in waves in order not to get too far away from the board.

Go Joe implodes well you are more lickly to have your kite blader implodes thant your GoJoe (assuming that you do not pump it like creasy.
testing a board without a Go Joe. I guess that 99% of the kitesurfer kite with their own boards and never test other boards.

GoJoe can probably not be mounted on a surf board

Great post Peter :thumb:

Fact is better than "I guess....." :wink:

A common problem in a lot of kiteschool is that doesn't teach to move in the water freely and safely with the kite only, but gives to the newbye directly a board :nono:
