In this clip from ‘My Session – Volume 1″ we show you how to go from body dragging to getting up on the board. “My Session -Volume 1″ is produced and directe…

Who else tried freestyling on the beat.
steve bell is an asshole vote down his coment!!! its at the top
There are other much better videos on YouTube. Why wouldn’t you want people
to know its a rubbish video?
lol Didn’t know Bill Paxton did narrations…
i know that feeling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
you must be bad
And that is when you Flag out or eject the kite. Most instructors will tell
you this rhyme: when in doubt just flag out
@chanman332 mmmmm maybe second hand gear? from what i gathered its pretty
pricy for a complete new set of kite boarding gear 2500-3000 and up. a good
kite is around 1000-1500, but there are cheaper kites but not recommended
Not a kiter yet after several lessons in HI. So bought a trainer for NW
Indiana, probably similar wind. It is gusty and inconsistent. Same goes for
inland lake sailing. Sailing on Lake Michigan is much better. You gotta
look for the biggest flattest (no trees or buildings) place you can find
for the wind to stabilize. Same with a lake. The bigger and more open water
where the wind is coming from … the better.
It really helps to spend a session or two just in the water flying the big
kite on a light wind day without the board, The bigger the kite size the
more stable and slower they are. So pick a day where there is not enough
wind to board but enough to fly the kite and practice. Remember if you hold
the bar in the center you are less likely to inadvertantly influence it and
cause it to steer somewhere you dont want it to be as opposed to holding
the bar near its end. Kite control is everything.
folks, make sure you learn how to control the kite and get the kite out of
the wind if the wind gets too strong for you!!! i i was taking lessons in
cabarete DR when the wind went instantly from 20 knots to 47 knots
sustained – gusts to 68 knots. wind went from side onshore (normal) to
offshore and then to direct onshore. i was dragged and smashed in to two
6ft waves and was nearly knocked unconsious….a 10yr kiteboarder got
dragged 50ft in air into the trees and broke hip and back!! SERIOUS!!
seriously.. how in the world do you guys get you board on your feet so
easy!! Pisses me off LOL, I’m always fighting my board on to my feet then
end up swinging around face to the wind
The things I found most helpful learning to water start were: Keep
consistent pressure on the bar. If you’re yanking or sheeting in and out
throughout the water start, you’re changing around too many variables to
succeed. Allow the nose of your board to point downwind. Start with small
dives and work up to bigger ones until you get enough pull to lift yourself
out the water. In light winds you may need to do multiple power strokes to
get enough pull to lift yourself out. Have fun!
Does anybody have kiting experience up in Minnesota? I tried lessons in MN
and I never got the hang of it. I could control the kites alright, but it
seemed that gusts would cause me to lose control. Winds are gusty up here.
Once I was flying my trainer (10-15 mph winds) and a big gust of wind came
and the lines broke. I also had similar problems when I was body dragging.
I would have good control of the kite but then suddenly I was thrown from
the water. Any thoughts?
hi jwhipple2000, It all comes down to kite control. If you learn to body
drag upwind before you start to use the board, by the time you try the
board you will be very comfortable flying the kite. Don’t worry you will
figure it out in no time, it just takes practice.
gracias muy buen consejo
Going to pick up kite boarding this summer.. CANT WAIT! agh!
GREAT BEAUTIFUL BELLISSIMO PRACHTIG NICE SUBLIME SUPER AMEZING LOOK TO
YOU TUBE VLIEGEREN MET JOOP VISSER THANKS JOOP VISSER IN THE NETHERLANDS
What helps me is: keep the kite at 12 oclock..get your right foot into the
strap..carefully bring the kite to 11 oclock…the pull of the kite will
force your left foot against the board…wiggle your foot into the strap.
If you are swinging around…fly the kite with one hand…use the hand you
need to help steer yourself around to point the right way..ie slightly down
wind. Kite control is important, but be patient learning:)
Hell ya …i start tomorrow! good luck to you
@extremeworkout305 thanks for the feedback!
Probably the hardest thing to learn. keep at it.
This is so difficult if you can’t, but i will keep trying. until i can
Ok, that was well done. Short, to the point, clear instructions and the
instructions matched what you see on screen. Seriously. Well done.
i bet "Kevin" wasnt found anywhere near the beach when Irene passed, lol, i
rofl i was surfing during this storm i herd about this on the news
man.dat was totally wild!!!! merciless wind!!
@hayashiburger Why would you say something like that? This guy could have
@jbarrick54 shut up little boy
three mistakes in a row: 1. kitesurfing in a storm 2. not letting the bar
