Of course it’s not only the wind force that makes the difference … it’s mainly technique that catapults you in giddy heights, says big-air-champion Bibiana Magaji who will reveal some important tips for higher jumps below.
What’s the main reason we are addicted to kitesurfing? To speak in behalf of most kiters, the answer is very simple: Because it’s fun! But nearly everyone who spent some time kiting already may have experienced days on the water that have been … let’s call it modest. Wether you see no progress anymore, you are totally stuck with a trick which makes you angry, you can’t cope with the conditions or you even get bored of kitesurfing … sometimes it’s like that.
We all know these days. Imagine you’re on a kite trip, hoping that you can rock everyday on the water … but then the bad forecast becomes reality. A day (or even more) without wind! For a lot of kiters, especially those who don’t have the possibility to spend heaps of time on the water, this means a small disaster and might end up in a bad mood – which of course is understandable for all kiteaddicts. Wether you want to hear it or not: It’s time for no wind activities.
