Race board could be nice, but I like doing this in the lightstuff.. on the 19m.
Summer winds are super light.... Overall... just have to deal with it what ever works.



Just out today on the Aboards Glider 164x50 and the 19m Speed....

Concerning Low Wind Kitesurfing, it seems that one company is thinking "out of the box" :kiff:

That's a great video of Lou W doing his thing.

he has a certain elegance that so many of todays riders don't have.

What makes you think the video is sped up? I did not speed any part of it up.

the wide angle + the position of the cam makes it feel speeded up.

i had that on a snowboard video, riding cool and when we watched the vid, we felt that the rider was going at mach 2.

on the other side , a raceboard + a speed 19= high relative speed.
when i see, the speed a guy can go with a raceboard +a 14 cabrinha at 10knots...
