Is it possible that you are driving the kite though the power zone to
get up on the board and flying right out the other end to the edge of
the window? This is a pretty common problem people have when getting
started on the board.
Make sure you are starting to head the kite back up though the window
once you have driven it though on the initial dive.
The timing takes a bit to get used to but it sounds like you are on your

Subject: [ksurfschool] PROBLEMS WITH WATER START
Hi i have just started, took a few lessons and I am on
my own now. I have a few problems with water starting.
I tend to go upwind wright away so I stay up for about
two seconds. I think it may be my weight distribution
on my board. Last time I went out the last minutes I
put more weight towards the front of the board and
helped me a bit. My question is what should a do to
not go upwind wright away, and what should be my
weight distribution when I start?
