- As an intermediate kitesurfer I have just changed from a F-one 178
TT to a Cabrinha Vari 138.
Problem I now "feel" is that my weight is too far to the back foot.
If I weight the front foot more, I feel more control and more able
to handle speed comfortably. However, I struggle to get my weight
I tried to experiment and felt perhaps that pulling the kite bar
backwards a little (ie towards my rear hip) helped me to get my
weight more balanced; but I appreciate that this might be one bad
thing compensating for another.
I never felt this with the F-one, possibly because there is so much
rail and the rails are so sharp on that board. Also, I don't feel it
with the Vari unless I am getting towards being fully powered or
Any experts out there who can help? Or is the simple answer to take
a lesson or two from an expert (by the way I am not self taught, but
it is a long time since I took any lessons)
