Riding Tips: Always stay within your limits, never ride on land when you`re fully overpowered, when learning how to jump, leave your board aside and focus on static jumps first, this will help improve your technique and also prepare you for landind after dropping the board, always remember to redirect your kite just before you land. The faster you redirect, the faster you will land in the right direction. Point your board downwind as you land and remember to bend your knees when you contact the ground. Ride the style you wish to ride and don`t change to keep other people happy
