flex your feet so the board is more vertical in the water and move your kite back and forth a bit to keep pressure on the rail. When you dive the kite, do a sit up motion so you get up early so you can use the power stroke to get moving instead of using the power stroke to lift you from the water.

I once helped a drifting drifter
He was way adrift on a piece of driftwood
The ocean that day had the driftiest driftage i had ever seen

Hope you catch my drift ......( i have too much time on my hands)

Still working on kiting with Drift in Ocean. Trouble starting strapless because board slides out from under me.
