BTW. im riding alaya style board with small /kitesurfing/ fins - i dont know if it make any difference to regular surfboard with bigger fins.
ok, it is quite simple.
Ride your SB;
Slow down, but keep a little of your edge;
Have your kite 45-50 deg - high enough to feel pull AND lift
Now move your kite slowly into your new direction;
Start turning with the kite, just follow the kite naturally;
Don't loose too much speed, just enough that you plane;
Half way into the turn, almost downwind, put both feed on front of your SB (its the spot of your SB where it has its best buoyancy - try to stand on your board in a swimming pool);
Keep turning and complete the turn by switching your stance.
I suggest using a Costco foamie as trainer. It's super simple with it and you get the concept down in no time.
