I've taken the plunge into strapless ridding and spent a few hrs today working on gybes. Well it didn't go as bad as I expected it I'm still a long ways away from being proficient at it. I have a few questions for those of you who have it down.

1) Do you switch your feet before or after your turn?
2) How far forward do you have your front foot? Is it in a similar spot to where you have it while surfing or a bit back?
3) Do you keep your weight back, front, or centered during the transition?

I successfully did several but still had a lot of trouble with it. I was using a very buoyant board ( Webber Pulse 6'3" ) which helped when the wind was light and found it much easier when powered and only moved my feet before the turn. The biggest problem I had was getting my stance wide enough to maintain balance. It seemed like I had it only to fall off the back of the board.

So as many of you already know I have relocated to California and an interesting comment was made to me that has me once again assessing my mental health in terms of this sport.

One of the local kiters was giving me the run down of the local launches and brought to my attention that there's a very large stingray population at one of the best ridding spots. He put it this way to " it's not a matter of if you get stung but more along the lines of when you get stung ", now as he's telling me this he said it's also rideable almost everyday for the next couple of months in the afternoon when the seabreeze kicks in. What troubles me is that all I heard was I can ride everyday and really had no concern about being stung. I never thought that after this many years I would still have the sickness but it looks like I still do.

Well here's to the smell of stinky gear in our cars once again.

Twisted Snowkite board. It's rockered without any side cut which gives you the same stance and feel as the water. Current bindings are Switch step in's and Illl throw in the boots for free. ( Van's size 10.5 ). I have a set of Flows that I can sell for an additional cost.

$250 with Switch
$350 with Flow's

After having a great session in Caseville last week on a SW I'm planning on heading up there on Thursday to experience it on a NW. I have room for one and it's a 2 hr drive from my house in Rochester. Let me know if your interested.

It looks like there's a strong forecast for the top of thumb tomorrow and I'm going to be in the area. Is there anybody planning on ridding up in that area?
