hummm .... concerning this "so glassy water" may i suggest photoshop !?! :think:

ok, ok, ok, I go back to the garden, my neighbor seems to have a remark about my last creation!

During the summer I review the knees flex ... in the garden precisely!

I am not sure that the last experience is perfect in terms of flex but it seems that, .... how to say, ..... it at least attracts the eye! 8O

During the winter photoshop may also help ....

:bravo: It's interesting too see the guy making frontside turns by turning hips and shoulders as we do in Swoard-EC and in water surfing. The backside however is made a bit in counter rotation. It is also possible to make it in rotation, but more tricky with the lines and the kite.

Ok,I don't consider kitesurfing as a sommer alternative to snowboarding but just a different sport that I really like,and this winter has being for me one of the best why I have matched to do both,and on the same day as well.After spending 3 and 1/2 week in Cape Town I got back home in Italy where a lot of snow was waiting so last saturday morning I went to my home resort wich is only 35 km away and ride snowboard from 8.30 till 11.30 then drove back home change gear and went down to the sea which is just 50 km away and had my afternoon kiesurf session thank's to strong wind coming from east.I was dreaming to snowboard and surf the same day form long time,almost 30 year's and last saturday I realized my dream.I was considering to give up whit snowboard but instead I brought mi board with me here in Sweden,I will be here for the next 3 month due to my job,and this saturday I will be in Are snowboarding again.
