Today on the Sector 60 I did an 8km upwind run, followed by a 10km downwind run, followed by a 2km return leg. On the return leg I was doing ins-and-outs through the waves, and riding upwind doing it, gaining ground on each leg. So much fun!
OzBungy wrote:Yes, but it's more like surfing a longboard, or riding a SUP in a downwinder. Mostly trimming with a bit of pumping to add some interest to it.
Is it surfing like the best of the kite surfers? No.
Is it surfing like 90% of people who ever surf a wave? Absolutely.
Is it fun?
