Getting used to a new wavesailing board.

This evenings surf session was back dropped by a bright red sunset and a pod of porpoises cruising by the three of us out in the water. I was on my good old trusty 5'10" Becker old school fish that has seen more rocks than Elizabeth Taylor and almost as many plastic surgeries. This good old fish, kites strapless as well as it surfs becaues.. hmmmm... been lucky enough to surf it a heck of a lot over the years and gotten used to it. It could sure use more nose rocker, but know what it can't do by surfing it. So when you get that new wave kitesurfing board, surf it for a while to see how it goes and then add the straps if you need to. If you can't paddle it into a wave it is not a real surfboard to kite with and a kiteboard so maybe a friend on a jetski with a rope might help...snicker, snicker...
