HELP!!
I am from South Africa and I am new to kiteboarding and very keen on getting a Naish Aero 10m. I am a relatively good wakeboarder and snowboarder. I want to do the more wakestyle kitesurfing.

Do you think its a good idea to start out on a kite-wakeboard say a 140cm with bindings? or with wake-sandals? or foot-straps?

Or do you think it is better to get a twintip or directional and get to grips with the whole thing before changing to wakestyle?

Also what board is good for wake type of riding? and do you need a bigger get to get that extra power because you need more power for wakeboarding?

I weigh 65kg and dont have the cash to get 2 boards at this stage.

Thats alot of questions!!!!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

thanks

hi,

in the first time, you don't feel very comfortable with that bitch in the sky bulliying you around when a board is fixed to your feet.
it's better to use straps until then.

do u already got a wakeboad?
