if my statement is invalidated by your opinion then my task is validated. Toby's style does not represent kiteboarding as a whole and because people like you get confused i will keep reminding the forum of what we are dealing with.
same session as the picture above
oop wind picked up, did i quit no i just went and grabbed my 12
the wind picked up even more , too much, nope just go grab the 9
so that was 07, when the wind got too much for my 16 i did not stop kiting. I pumped up the appropriate equipment and continued to ride. Was I able to just smoothly transition from one size to the next and continue to do the same tricks as easily as before, no, but I recognize that changes need be made to timing and control and work towards expanding my set of kiteboarding skills.
not gonna jump this high on a big kite
