Short answer - yes.
Long answer - how have you ridden a 150 and not know how to go upwind?
I was reaching a point of my tacks getting close and closer together, it then started getting dark. I also had to go further downwind because another beginner had problems water starting. So I didnt want to hit the boneyard so I went further down wind to action beach.
I had to leave that board in Maui due to the fee.
I keep changing my stance because of advice people have been giving me in regards to my stance but in my last run with the tacks getting closer I was evening the distribution of weight on the 150. I didnt know if there was anything else to it.
I only have about 10 hours of solo riding experience.
I spent about 2 messing around with a lower powered kite, losing my board, and realizing booties are not for me.
