Catching Waves from out the Back
This technique is used when there is a decent swell and the wind is cross on or side shore.
1. Turn in front of a swell and get enough speed to stay on the moving wave.
2. As the waves steepens you will feel the power of the wave replacing the power of the kite.
3. Turn your kite down low in front of the wave as you begin to take the drop. Keep the kite low and make small adjustments as you ride along the face.
4. Initially start out on the shoulder of the wave but as your confidence increases you will be able to take off closer to the pocket of the wave.
