there are two more tips i know:
on a wake / twin twist your knees forward.
and: look into the direction you wanna go.
if you're riding towards the beach, toy around and try how hard you can go upwind - then find a point where you wanna get and look there when not looking @ kite or board.
and when riding out, find a rider who's riding in front of you and try to follow him / gain more height than him
this is helping mostly newbees on small boards, but may work for you guys too (if u didn't know this already)...
it is also important to find the sweet spot on your bar where the kite still flies fast enough and has power, and also the sweet spot of your board - the point where the edge lets you go upwind but does not brake too much ...
