It's how you ride!
- I received the Kiteboarding magazine today and went quickly over it. I
noticed a few changes in the "tone" of the magazine.
1- The magazine used to promote bi-directional board now shows a
picture of a very young kitesurfer doing an "impossible move" using a
standard directional board
2- The editor's article says great things about a directional board
rider and more or less conclude "it's not what you ride; it's how you
I was thinking of canceling my subscription to the magazine due to its
biased single minded view toward bi-directional board. I will now renew
Kitesurfing has its root in directional boards (even Cory was riding a
directional as in his own words - if I remember correctly - "wake boards
are too slow, too unstable at speed")
Personally, I think both directional and bi-directional boards have
their places in kitesurfing, just don't be too concerned in what you
ride, it's how you ride.
