Foiling is child's play

Literally. For the curious, she's riding a 3.7

Okay, kiters, time to step up your game. Biggrin

She explains the footswitch like someone her age describes an iphone to their grandparent. Love it!

Yeah - Gene reported is was pretty easy. Wants to know when I'm converting foiling.

She made another video on how to jibe and tack.

I guess her tacking method is correct. I used it to the other day when it was 27 or so. (Sequence starts about 2:30) The rest are jibes (blown or not.) Kites take a beating on asphalt, so I got to remember they got to stay high.

There is no off season.

Actually it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be., not easy. And using a 2-foot mast instead of a three foot mast and a board designed not to stick the nose helped. I was able to get a couple of two or three second rides, but it is fun to try something new.
