Frontside riding wins. :kiff:Many tried to argue for backside riding and then posted pics and video of surfing backside to show it looks ok without a kite but still nobody was at all convinced riding backside with a kite in waves is a good idea :nono: .

Riding in a straight line is the only time backside wave kiting looks ok. Make a turn and it looks like shit. :bye:

Nonsense - laid out heel-to-toe carving turns look great and feel even better.

Yeah I do - it just doesn't look good. This is a thread about aesthetics; anyone can comment on that - claiming Authority from Ability is a requirement to comment is nonsense.

... and they say weed don't make you dumb :roll:
