When you say you are sick of trying to hold it, one would think that you were overpowered.redsc1 wrote:Hi
OK so I’m having trouble staying upwind, can anyone offer me some advice. I have two kites, an Aero 8m and Aero II 12m. I am 75kg and have a 157 Wavetray. I have been up and going on the board for about 3 months now but am having trouble staying upwind.
I think that I have to lean back more, really dig the edge of the board in and move the kite to the forward edge of the window. When I try that with the 8m it does not seem to have enough power, but then with the 12m I just seem to be overpowered and accelerate out of control trying to get the kite to the edge of the window.
I’m sick of doing the walk back up the beach, not to mention it is a pain for me 75Kgs to try and hold on to the 12m in 15 - 20kts of wind!
