when you say you can't go toe side, what exactly happens, do you lose all speed and stall, go over the front of the board or just struggle to maintain the correct course?
I Struggle to maintain course ...
I had started a thread a while back called :
Post subject: Re: How do i Point my surfboard the Other way?
I got a Lot of suggestions on how to get turned around from heel-side to toe-side ;and
now i can do that . Turns out i wasn't putting Near enough kite energy into my
jibes on the transitions. Now i Really power-up for that move.
OK-- i Can point my surfboard the other way and go toe-side now ;
this thread was asking how to do an efficient broad-reach while going toe-side.
Turns out most agree that going Toe-side is NOT as efficient as heel-side ; so
this thread should help a Bunch of people just learning to go on a surfboard.
Trying to figure out the essence of Why it's not as efficient, will help Me improve.
I got a Lot of Good suggestions that should help me, tomorrow Mohave is suppose
to blow 20-29, so it looks like i get to practice some of those different technique's.
I'll let you guys know how it goes !!!
This kinda says it all :
... Been riding for 13 years and I still cannot get as efficient on my toes. It is a wind hungry stance really. You do get better and better at it, but it will always be less efficient.
