Preview Lesson 6:


In Lesson 5 we have explained the front-side top-turn in wave kiteboarding as a stand-alone maneuver, initiated from riding toe-side towards a wave. It is possible to perform a top-turn maneuver in wave kiteboarding like this, but often and for several reasons you initiate the top-turn out of a bottom turn, at the bottom of a wave. It will be more powered and it will feel spectacular if you perform a top-turn out of a bottom-turn maneuver in front of the wave while wave kiteboarding . This Lesson explains how.



SELECTING THE WAVE

The entire maneuver actually starts with selecting a wave. For this, you ride outside of the shore break, where the waves start slowly building up, mostly a couple of hundred meters away from the beach.
It takes experience to see, when a good wave is building up, because every wave begins with only a small rise on the water. Select one, and ride with it towards the beach, ideally just in front of it. If you are just behind, overtake the wave so you are positioned in front.
As this swell becomes bigger, forming a clear wave, you can assess, how big it will be at the breaking point. Ride a few meters in front of it, while observing the wave carefully. Your objective is to gauge the point where the wave will break. It helps to observe the waves running in front of your wave, if these are of similar height. They will break before your wave. White foam on the water signifies where the earlier waves have broken, and your wave will break just before this point. With some experience you will become pretty good in determining the point on the water surface where your wave will break ... [script to be continued]
