Affirmative - for example it might be after a long fight to launch a foilboard and then the wind decreases even more. Or you just begin in 10 kts and wind dies out.
Point 1 - keeping front lines tight all the time - all beginners don't understand it and they usually blame all other reasons than themselvesPedro Marcos wrote: In such a light wind this is what will happen:
1 - Go on the water with side wind and keep the kite moving to "try" that it doesnt drop from the sky, keeping tension on the lines.
2 - Do the first loop to start (or big stroke) that will be just enough to put you "standing" on the board: and this is where the board is important, if you have a low volume board it will sink before you have enough time to give another stroke/loop on the kite, with a bigger board you will manage to stand on it and do another loop to start you moving, and then another one to give you enough speed to lift your foil.
3- point 1 and 2 will happen again everytime you fail to jibe/tack properly, and the big board will allow you to touchdown for more time.
