Learn How to Turn in kiteboarding
Once you are able to water start, you will need to learn how to turn to come back to the shore !! 🙂
First, simply put your kite at 12 o’oclock and sit in the wtaer. Then make a water start to the other direction.
You will need to work on your timing in order to turn like a pro.
- Rise your kite slowly to 12 o’clock
- Push on your back leg and go straight upwind to stop
- Change your Stance (the weight to your back leg to the front) and send the kite to the other side)
To add some style in your ride try a Toe Side turn. You can watch the video a Kitekahulas to learn mor about Toe side Turn.
You can also try to do a Heel Side Turn
Depending on the side you are riding, it will be easier to switch to toe side before turning to heel side.
