Was using a line mounted Contour GPS yesterday when I was learning how to tack.

nice al-kite. What board is that. It almost looks like you ride it on a rail.

I guess it is a trend towards the more allround boards. Easier to ride. :-)

It is an older raceboard. We don't race in lake condition :D so have not need to move to the new style board yet but am looking to upgrade this year.

Never seen a tack before where someone went strap to strap with both feet.

Awesome vid. I am getting the hang of it now. Finally. It's been a tough process.

Now I gotta do it with speed and flow. I also have to practice gybing on a broad reach, high speed is really hard to gybe and keep speed. It is all a little magic to me so far, but it is a fun learning process.
