Re: twin tip or directional for starting
> For beginners are tt's or directionals the way to go?Paul
Let me add that the general trend in our sport is toward twin tip
style boards. I started on a directional but I wouldn't really
recommend a beginner buy one unless they have a strong windsurfing
I have both a directional and twin tip and I now almost always ride
the tt. There are some however that prefer directionals.
This is a religous question....people will aggressively take both
sides depending on thier personal preference.
Old story was that beginners should learn on directionals...I think
you should consider what riding style you think you will ultimatley
prefer and start with that type of board. The 'Boost" vidoes provide
a good overview of both approaches and excellent instruction if you
are just starting out.
I'm a 180lb's and I started on a Litewave 165 twin tip. After
speding two days on ground developing kite skills, I had no probelm
getting up on the Litewave my first time in the water.
