Upwinding someone

Postby Okinawa Kiter » Thu Apr 03, 2014 11:53 pm

Just wondering how many others try to UPWIND another kiter and if you try to compete? We often do in the light stuff then the upwind person tries to bonk the downwind kiter on top of the head to piss him off. We do it in like 12 knots and amongst friends.

Yeah nothing better than fooling around with experienced friends in light winds - not much else to do, so may as well have fun like you guys :)

I like to smile and wave, and then unleash a massive plume of water by edging my 220lb mass onto my rear foot! priceless :smash:

Check out action @1:20. If any of us eats in the pow, they get their a$$ jumped...
