Hey
Anyone know of any good videos of racers tacking their boards. I'd like a step by step, but I doubt it is out there. :-)

thx :-)

That last one was nice. I've seen how Aguera tacks on the water, and it is unbelievable fast. How he turns coming out with speed the opposite direction is beyond me. :o :o
This video was a little better. I think I am sending the kite too hard, because I generally get air, and then have to land back down on my board...which is not efficient and not sustainable.

I guess trying more than 2 times per session is a good idea. :-)
