I would like some feedback from all of you on my surfing. I have been kiting for 1 year and have been using a surfboard for only 5 months.

I have been using the 6m Eclipse Kima. I think this kite is amazing on the waves, jumping, etc...

Please let me know what you guys think and please be honest.

I am completely addicted to kiting on the waves!!! :D

Thanks,
Adriana

I love the synchronised wave with Felix, it couldn't have been timed better :D

Very impressive after 1 year (5months on a surf board)

You wanted it Honest....Awesome Job, Great Style, glad to see that you are Rocking it there..Sad to see that there were No Other Women in the video, much less kiting the waves....I will talk to Dimintri or Chris tomorrow and see if they can get you on as a Team Rider, and if anything, at least get a Eclipse Bar and line set-up sent to You...One More thing, when you "Hit the Lip" like you do, which is the way I like to ride too, you might want to start thinking about "Going down the Line"...I see that Felix was in the video for a short second, but he was looking "down the line" for that next set/ big wave..Good Luck in the Future, You keep it up, you will make the Front Cover of One of the Kite Mags. real Soon, IMO....I would send this video to Brian Goldenberry @ Kiteworld Mag....He might be able to help in some way.............A.J.

Very nice riding.
For one year liting and only 5 months on a surfboard you are obviously a natural.
I think a team will snap you up pretty soon.

Very nice Adriana. I still remember when you were testing your new Surf board and was afraid to get in the waves. Look at you now!!!! That is very nice I could not believe the video. For a while I thought that was FELIX. "Same hair" :D

Good job. So I guess you like the KIMA kite :thumb:

Thank you all for the feedback! I really appreciate it and need it in order to get better

DELRAY SON,
I tried going out strapless today and it was my first time. I really liked it! It was hard, but I think I can do it. I was able to hit the lip a few times and so now I just need to practice more. Thanks for the suggestion!

gk76,
I am using a John Amundson board. It was given to me when I started and it got me going this far, but the board is way too thick and heavy for me. I do like the size though....It's a 5.2. I am looking to make a new board, but I am not sure what I should get yet.

Kitebdr1962,
Thank you for the feedback and for the help! I also agree with you that I need to looking "down the line" more. The waves have been really small here (it's summer time) and I am lucky to hit the lip twice in the same wave. But I will remember that and will look "down the line" more. Thank you.

Any more feedback is welcome. Thanks again!

My progress riding strapless. These photos and video were taken about 1 week after I started riding strapless. I know it is not great, but it is a start and since then I have improved a lot... What do you think?

WOW! only one year and 5 months on a surf board, that's amazing indeed, very inspiring,i'm trying to get into wave riding with a surfboard myself. How much water and wave time you've gotten within the 5 months?
