However, I am cognizant that I have limitations and have to be aware of things like knees, conditions beyond my abilities, adopting a more conservative riding style, etc. ...
One of the really COOL things about this sport is that just being out
on the water and riding, while taking in the view, is WAY more than enough
to justify the energy Ya put into learning how to kite-board !!!
You don't Need tricks , to be having Fun .
Your instructor will tell Ya how to bail-out of a Bad situation , before it actually
dangerous enough to hurt you. Like if your speed gets too high you can always
smash the kite in the water, it's like hitting the breaks on your car. If you do it
once, next time you'll be checking your speed by bringing the kite "Up" out of the
power-zone, "before" it gets scarey fast .
Flying the kite :
If you do everything Smooth and deliberate, with No radical input ; you shouldn't
need to worry much about going airborne . Just stay away from the higher winds
and gusty conditions.
Also, that Quick-Release is an option you Should be practicing .
