Usually, when i do a back-roll, i will adjust the kite to optimum position
then carve up-wind off my back foot, to bring the board & body around
as i sheet-in the bar. I do the same for both the TT and surfboard.
OK-- here's the problem :
the Left leg has more stability than the Right one, (cause the stump is longer)
so when i do a back-roll while going to the left, it's the Right leg that initiates the
carve up-wind . I basically never know exactly how much energy i'm placing in
the turn to trigger the back-roll , till After i'm in the air. It makes doubles kinda
hard to rely on the landing rotation and as a result, i only land about 60% of
all my doubles. Single back-rolls are near 100% landed each time on both
the TT and surfboard.
It really shows the instability of the Right leg when i'm snow-skiing ; anyone
who skies i'd appreciative a comment on how to make a better turn on the
snow, cause it will Definitely help me with the kite boarding. The Right ski
is kinda wobbly, and doesn't track as well as the Left one, as you will see in
If Ya know another way to initiate a back-roll with the Kite-board, other than
stomping on the rear foot, what's the secret ?
