Really..it is so much fun...

I went out on the Naish board today, and it is super fast. Having only ridden raceboards two times before...this is what I come to:

It is super awesome!! Now I just need advice on riding :-)

Welcome to the club taut. I find that I am riding my raceboard in all kinds of conditions now and having a hoot. And working on upwind and downwind techniques gives me new challenges every day. I had no idea how much I would get into this racing thing, and I am not even winning in the races around here.

Be warned however that mastering the tack is one of the most difficult tricks I have struggled with. One day I nailed ten in a row and then the next day I hardly made one. :cry: I am enjoying it though.

:wink:

it is fun when you challenge your buddies and other people...and when you develop start and racing tactics...then tune your gear etc.

Not for everyone, but for sure one more cool thing to do with a kite! Gotta love the diversity!

And I hope to see your name soon on the podium ;-)
