OFFSHORE Directional / Beginner board

Postby chemosavi » Tue Aug 05, 2003 6:46 pm

Basically a modified windsurfer or surfboard but with lots of volume for light wind but multiple foot positions allow for kiting in light AND heavy winds with small kite. May also be used as beginner kiteboard with very small kite.Image

Sweet looks pretty mint. I'm assuming that your talking about offshore winds? In other words a small ram air kite and big directional board due to the very gusty nature of offshore winds.....

Sounds like a mint idea.. :thumb:

Something is wrong with footstraps on your tandem (or should I say family?) board. No matter how you position 3 people on your board their legs would cross, do that they'll have a great difficulty gibing.

we westerners have an indigenous quality that we should be ashamed of that goes hand in hand with kiteboarding and it goes by the name of individualism which also coincides with kitesurfing in that it is a one person sport; ie. no families allowed. Sorry

Yeh man, only one person uses my kiteboard at a time. Proud to be a individualistic western jackass
