Anyone use a longboard with a kite??? If so what size board, and what wind? Seems like a nice idea for riding smaller waves etc and REALLY light wind.

Thanks,

Do it all. Everywhere.

Go Travis!

Seriously J, I think the consensus is that if it's light you can rig the kite you normally would be under powered on and be planing and staying up wind on a 9' surf board. But these days it seems like you see everything out there...everyone is experimenting and it's all fun. Snatching wave after wave with a Mal and a kite is pure joy. Now guys are taking short(er) surfboards out in the Gorge when it's nuking and riding the swell ...awesome.



P.S. Manzo ruled yesterday
