When I boost or rotate with a kite, it all happens to fast. It's as if I close my eyes while it's happening, even though I don't. Do I just need more practice? I hope to get to a level where I can boost a straight air and be able to enjoy the view up there without feeling butterflys.

Just keep doing it Wanger and your ability and confidence will grow. The more comfortable you are the more enjoyable it will become. I'm sure you were nervous when you popped that cherry but now you're an old pro and it's all good....right :allbegood:

Its funny, when you first start out you think you are way higher than you actually are. Then recently when I was learning board offs I dropped the board and watched it fall for a while before hitting the water. I realized I was much higher than I thought, haha

So you get used to it, dont worry :thumb:

Dude thats funny, just concentrate on your kite redirection with 'aggression' while spotting the landing point, for a super soft touch down..

The more you jump the more addicted you will become to greater heights and hang time (unless you just ride strapless SBs and wakestyle).

Eventually you will get to that point where it feels ho hum and it's time to strap yourself to a bigger kite and go bigger!!!! :D

...on a 16m 2011 dyno in 20 knots at 75kg...I also had butterfly's today, but that's a good thing!!!!!
