Just wondering what most people prefer, I do a bit of both (not always sucessfully) but do feel that I get bored of the technical stuff once I get it wired.
I don't agree...
Here, when you are in the last period of the intermediate level, most kiters go for the big non-technical moves.
But when you get really tough - it is waaaaay too boring, whether there are spectators or not - does'nt matter.
The technical tricks is IMO the thing that can keep even the best kiter going and have fun "forever" - because its a challenge, and you can always find more and even too difficult or new tricks to master - or try to at least.
If I am out alone - I for sure do, or practice, different technical tricks.
In fact its almost the only way to jibe today (Dir/Mutants/TT's), which is really fun.
And if you are a bunch of friends out - there is nothing more fun that showing new moves, and also boost full power in between.
So I have to disagree in tech. being boring - and simple power more fun.
I think the opposite - simple power is fun, but tech. moves are never as boring, and keeps you going !
Now and then its also great just to boost as high as possible, without any tricks (maybe just a table top or one single spin) - and ride this way in power and simplicity - yeah !
It is very alternating that you can change style whenever you wan't to.
This is a great sport - I just love ALL of it !
