So how's it going - and what was your experience level when you started?
Doing good, been windsurfing for 3 years and jumped on kiting this year, got Sector as my first bord.
Can jybe to toe-side and then do a good tack staying toe-side and not losing any ground and then, carve back to heel-side. I have to say that I had much higher succes rate at it when I had surf-fins on it. Once I put regular fins, I started to wipe out alot, need to readjust. Upwind drive is very good, was out in 25knts yestarday on 9m and was the highest upwind in the on shore wind.
I can't seem to go as fast as I wish to go in when it get's crazy choppy here but when water get's little flatter and it's 20knts - damn, what an adrenaline though.
I would not want to steal the thread but, I seem to become quickly overpowered on sector, be it on 12m in 12 knts or 9m in 15-20knts. It has to do something with apparent wind I guess? I always ride with trim depower strap fully pulled in and still become easyly overpowered once this thing picks up speed. Any tips on that?
I weigh 175lbs and ride 52cm sector.
