I'm goona bug the hell outta this 'getting upwind' stuff..
We all know that: "You end up where you are looking." Whether it's riding a horse, MTB,
surfboard..almost 'whatever': keep your head up and look where you want to go. By
extension, your shoulders and torso follow your head. ...but on a kiteboard your feet/legs
can take a couple of positions.
I have seen people with their feet 'duck' (somewhat square on the board) twisting at the
waist but mostly vertical not leaning forward (god forbid) or back. The other stance is the
natural stance you'd have on a 3-strap directional - where the rear leg is bent and
somewhat tucked under your butt and the forward leg is kept quite straight and your torso
Which seems to work better for you - when/why?
