I was wondering if anyone has tried the short little snow skis with their kite?

I am just learning how to snowboard, so I pulled out my long downhill skis. I picked it up in minutes, but I think those short skis would work even better. The transition is a little tricky with long skis, but very cool.

I seen a Mini snowboard for adults, has anyone researched this new technology for snow kiting. Since the snowboard is 1/2 the size it looks much easier to move around on and with the kite to give you power it should be fine. I am doing some research on it so any information would be appreciated.

I was at Metro yesterday and the Micro Skis are the Shit! Much easier to turn than long skis and less gear to carry around. I need to spend some time on them to get good, but looks like this is my short term answer.

I contacted Kiteboarder Mag and got the manufacturer of the mini snowboard specifically for Kiteobarding. One is on the way and I will let you guys know how it goes. The Manufacturer explained the binding mounts are modified to eliminate the heel drag and the tip and tail are the same flex. I guess on a regular snowboard these are the two major issues making it harder to use on a kite application. The kite specific board is actually less than a mid range snowboard from a good manufacturer.

I am also am having a friend cut down my old skis becuase the ski shop would not touch it. Didn't think so, but I enjoyed the conversation with the Ski tech "you want to do what?".

Thanks again and I hope to see all soon!
