      The key is to use long even strokes... keep it moving and you'll be able to
      keep it up much longer. I assume you have it together correctly so that it
      goes right when you pull right... Light wind is just a tease.... Don't try
      to oversheet them, too much rear tension will cause your session to come to
      a premature end. If you try to turn them too agressivly to climb from
      launch to zenith in light winds, they can stall and fly/fall backwards as
      well.

      Keep praticing, some day you might star in a video, I'd recommend unethane
      condoms!

      Hey, Help me out.
      I got hooked up and got some great equipment for really cheap. I have
      a new Seasmik 7.4 and a great condition Naish AR5 15.5. Problem is I
      read everything, go out and try to sail and crash it every time. The
      Seasmik will go up the wind window 20-30 feet and I get excited and
      it turns over and heads straight down leading edge first. The Naish
      was a little easier today. In 7-10 knots the kite would get filled
      with air would go up 10-15 feet then turn and crash on the leading
      edge. It got all the way up to the neutral zone and then stayed there
      for 30 seconds and then dove to the left. Help.
      I got in to it because I saw how much fun this guy was having, but I
      have yet to find a group to learn from.
      Any advice would be great, I just need to get it up in the sky and
      keep it up so that I can spend the time practicing.
      Help.

        You need to understand the wind window and where the kite can and cannot
        fly. I would suggest you buy the Ken Winner instruction video. This would
        help you a lot. It's the best at helping someone all alone. All the kite
        shops sell it.

          I agree with Dwight. The name of the video is
          "Kitesurfing, How to Rip."

          Please also take time to orient yourself on the safety
          aspects of the sport. One day, you are going to find
          yourself out there with the kite fully powered lifting
          you into the air. You need to be prepared to handle
          that kind of situation.

          When I first learned how to kite surf I had many
          frustrating days where the wind was too light.
          However, I had just as many when I was flying too
          large of a kite for the prevailing conditions, that is
          when the sport can get very dangerous. Be careful!
