When I started watching the kite boarders, I was taken by the boards with foils since they are well, high tech. But after watching today’s action, the classic boards are the way to go. Why? Because the boards with foils slice through the waves with nary a bounce. Sure they are faster, even with the smaller sails, but they’re not as much fun to watch.
Today’s wind was every bit as big as yesterday but there was a big difference. The swells were larger and that meant that the kite boarders had an opportunity to catch some big air. But only if you have a classic board 🙂
There were a few folks out there jumping the waves but the person who really ripped them up was this woman. Kudos to her!
