Riding Styles

Postby bigoss » Mon Aug 31, 2009 12:07 am

Could someone give me a comprehensive definition of the different riding styles? (Freeride, Wakestyle, Freestyle, Surf etc.) Ive been riding for a little over a year and have yet to get a definitive answer to this question. It seems that manufacturers such as Cabrinha base Kite/ board selection on this terminology and it would really help to get a better idea at what I'm lookig at...........................Thanks

Come on....

I am no rocket scientist.

Freeride= Doesn't matter what the wind is. Ride anywhere,any wind, and tide, just for the fun and enjoyment of being on the water.

Wakestyle= Powered up, Expert, unhooked, Killer style, badass, young, no joke!

Freestyle= Proficient, High jumps, board offs, doesn't really matter smooth as silk!

Surf= Unhooked, Surfing waves, killer style, no joke, Expert, :cool2: Enough said.

Is that ok?
