the wave

Wave riding at the extreme. yes he used a kite to get in and out. I think that is more than using a jet ski Wave ridingWave riding (kitesurfing) in waves is a style that combines kiteboarding with surfing. Learning to kitesurf big waves and to use a directional board requires a whole new range of skills and techniques that can make an accomplished flat water kiter feel like a beginner again.Most kitesurfers use a directional board with enough flotation and good turning characteristics to surf the wave. Many kiters use a board that can be used for regular surfing too (with the foot straps removed).Wave riding is quite different from flat water kitesurfing where the wind always powers you and your board. You can also apply flat water style to riding waves by using the kite as your primary means of propulsion.However, when you kitesurf big waves, you can transition from wind power to surfing using the power of the wave. The kite becomes a method of getting into position for a big wave similar to a tow-in by a jet ski. Once in position, the power of the wave takes over and you surf it as you would without the kite.To do this you need to position and fly your kite "down the line" and follow it so that it ceases pulling you while it stays flying. When you are out there, have selected wave and are about to catch it, do a quick 3 point check:Front foot locatedRear foot locatedKnees bentIt is well worth mastering toeside riding upwind for wave riding, so you can tack in both directions without switching your feet on the board. This allows you to remain in your preferred stance and approach and catch waves without switching your feet or riding "goofy" in one direction.Practice releasing all your safety releases to ensure you can release the kite completely quickly and easily. Do a release check before you get on the water.
