3161RE: [ksurfschool] twin tip or directional for starting
- Apr 27, 2002This is perhaps one of the more debatable questions we are asked by
beginners. Here is a round about answer:
When making any choice you have to compare the advantages and the
disadvantages. You will certainly get up quicker on a large directional.
However if you are unnacustomed to jibing you may find turning around a
little tricky. You can always jump off turn the board around and voila! Now
the question remains why do that when you can use a bidi (rectional) and
learn to turn in your first board session. It is true to say that you may
need more kite to get going. I think that this is the most discerning
factor. If you are not comfortable with carrying a little more kite then
your decision is already made. However if you are a bidi rider already from
Wake or Snow then it is hard to justify mixing your style. The main thing is
to try everything and don't judge it until you have given it a fair go. If
you are sludging on the smaller board don't blame it, put up a bigger kite
and see what you think. Move from your comfort zone and you may find your
comfort zone will move with you. Ride what you like and don't dislike what
you haven't ridden!
Now stop reading and go ride!
When it doesn't blow it sucks!

I'm sure you've discussed this but i searched and couldn't find a
good answer. For beginners are tt's or directionals the way to go?
Thanks - Paul
