And the bit I forgot!! Thanks Rod!
Solutions Episode – The Definitive Guide To Riding Upwind.
For most people riding upwind is the Holy Grail of kitesurfing.
Let’s face it until you’re actually coming back to where you left on the beach in any conditions you can’t really consider yourself a fully independent kitesurfer.
It’s also one of the areas where people struggle the most as progress can seem infuriatingly slow.
In this episode I break down riding upwind into its component parts and tell you exactly what you need to be focussing on at every stage. These are the little tricks which I have seen make all the difference in finally cracking the walk of shame.
In this episode we cover:
- What your nipples have to do with riding upwind!
- Why the board is more important than the kite.
- Why we need to shag not s**t!
- Why we need to be riding slowly to ride upwind.
To better explain some of the concepts there’s also an accompanying video below.
