Re: [ksurfschool] 171 liquidforce picklefork
- As a beginner your problems will be more with keeping the kite where you
want it, keeping you where you want to be, staying oriented right and doing
all this while dealing with bindings. When you do a nose-over (which you
will) or get spun onto your back your beginner kite skills won't make things
easier. It's just a very unforgiving set-up to learn, and one that all the
wakeboard skills in the world won't help very much. Of course anything CAN
be done if you're patient enough. It's just twice as hard and would take
twice as long to get to the same point.
That said, the 171 is a decent size wakeboard. I'd strongly urge you to put
straps on it to learn, at least for while. When you get the waterstart
wired put the bindings back on. The learning curve is pretty fast, at some
point it all just clicks. You want to minimize the time that this takes.
