kite positioning and techniques for landboarding?


Hello there

I'm wondering if anyone has any useful hints and tips/videos about which way is best to fly the kite when land boarding?

Any info will help greatly, I've had two goes and can get moving but don't know/ haven't seen many videos or had instruction on good ways to maneuver the kite when on the atb

I take it depower and fixed bridle is different styles of flying?

I'm using a 5 sqm pl rebble

As the power comes on I get smaller and smaller by bending my knees. I lean back against the power and sort of push out with my feet. Better to fall back on my butt than go over the top.

How you fly the kite depends on a lot of things. If you are under powered you can start out with a loop and then sine ~ the kite along. If the wind is strong you can " park and ride " at the edge of the window.

Carl's videos are good. The tutorial at www.coastalwindsports.com explains a lot about how things change with the kite in motion etc..
