      Hey gang...I'm going to Cuba in December to see a friend get married. We'll be near Guardalavaca...does anyone know if there's any kiting around there. I've inquired at the resort but they don't allow it on their small beaches.

      I would think that the faster your board speed, the
      harder it would be to go upwind. It's the same
      principle as in sailing - to go faster you have to
      bear off the wind. If you go slower, you can point
      higher upwind, if you have sufficient wind to stay on
      a plane. Also, the higher aspect ratio kites seem to
      go upwind better. I personally prefer the "high mode"
      at 10 o'clock to go upwind as it is far more relaxing
      as long as you are not overpowered and can keep an
      edge.
