it´s not a choice, it´s just the position u end up after crashing
u could rotate latter on if you will but does not worth the effort. better just to put the kite in the air again and move on
huh? i always flip myself around before relaunching my kite, it takes 2 seconds to do, its not exactly rocket science. having the board in front of you makes it easier to pull the bar in and gives resistance to relaunch against also
well... i never bother. and guess i keep my habit of swimming a bit to the kite to help him slide
and not sure i agree with Joe, this is a board sport, style matters
but to be fair he then described what is adding style in my book.
