Work your way up through the wind ranges, to the point that you are comfortable as it gets stronger.
You have to be able to put the boat in the groove, and keep it there with a light touch on the helm. Any extra steering just slows you down. You could watch the rudders on boats sailed by great sailors, and then on average sailors, and you would see a BIG difference in amount of steering.
If you have much chop or waves where you sail, footstraps on the back of the wing help keep your feet in place in rough conditons. We have two on each wing. ...
I'm sure you'll enjoy it. It's a great boat.
With "That advice", i think After i flip it & see how to right her with with
I'm Gonna head to Mission Bay in SD ; summer Ya can kinda count
on light winds ; & learn to sail my New device called a Cat, in
almost boring conditions. I don't even Own a Kite that would
pull me in that light of wind, but the 21-SE will go in a 10mph.
Mohave "Will" blow 13 to 30mph on about 2 out of every 7 - 10 days
Question Is : "Which Two" ?
The groove you describe -- works the same for Kite boarding and
land-sailing. With the Kite board, i need to look at the vortex coming
off the fins to see if i'm at optimum AOL on the board. I have
essentially NO concept of "Feel" with double prosthetics ; everything
Everything is visual, i glance at the fins about as much as i monitor
my rear view in traffic, (every 5 to 8 seconds).
The Land-sailor is the same also. A BloKart in a 30-G/35
will get Ya a Really fine line with one wheel up. The main-sheet
will balance & feel like a Hang glider in ground effect at 45mph
The footstraps are also going to need an 8" wide & flat stand with
a 3" lip so my feet don't fall out.
a set of release bindings that a snow-boarder uses ?
