Either get used to it, or change to rangeful kites like Takoon, or Airblast again, or X3.Aki wrote:I've been using the AMP 11.9 and 8.7 with a WT 142 (w/ 5cm Tarifa fins on the heelside) for a few months now but find that the 11.9 in particular generates too much lateral force in gusts for my weight. I'm just under 70kg and find it really hard work to hold the rail. (Note: I used to sail the Airblast) I'm not really very impressed by the windrange compared to the Airblast.
Mates of mine (who are heavier) don't seem to find it a problem.
1. Change to less grunty kites e.g Takoon.
2. Get a smaller perhaps more flexible board that dumps the power a bit/holds its edge better.
3. Shorten the lines on the 11.9 making it faster and perhaps a little less powerful.
4. Learn how to kitesurf properly.
