The basic frontside off the lip is every rider's introduction to riding a wave with a kite. A good top turn involves a lot of timing between your kite, your board position, and the wave and it can take some time to pull it all together.
Kitesurfing on a strapless surfboard is one of the most rewarding things you can do while powered by a kite, but before you head to the waves you have to first learn how to get up on a surfboard without straps.
Have you ever been on a long downwinder and have something break? Ever been on a kite vacation where the nearest shop is hundreds of miles away? Sometimes gear breaks and you just don’t have the resources to fix it the right way. Here are a few quick fixes to get you back on the water, or at least to get you to where you need to go.
Ignorance may be bliss, but not at a heavily kited beach or reef break where everyone knows and expects a lot from each other. Wave etiquette is what maintains the peace and maximizes the fun for everyone. The rules of etiquette are rarely written and are usually implied but they most definitely exist, and failure to figure it out before you jump in can get you into some trouble.
Snowkiting is not much different than kiteboarding on the water, but a new set of rules needs to be adapted for a different environment. Much of the standard kiteboarding gear can be used and the same skills and techniques directly apply.
