SUP Kiting: no excuses to leave your girl

Brendan Richards, Senior Vice President of Demo Operations for Caution Kiteboarding, has published a very interesting article about a new possibility in kitesurfing.

That's Stand-Up Kiting (SUK). The idea might seem ridiculous, at a first glance. But, remember how do you feel when there's almost no wind, your girl/boy is alone in the beach and you simply have nothing to do.

Richards experienced riding a 15m kite with a SUP board, in 5-8 knots of wind. And he really enjoyed it. Of course, it is not as intense as riding small boards at high speed, but who cares. You're having fun.

If you're interested in trying SUK, learn a few tips from Brendan Richards:

* Start on your knees with small power strokes.
* Sink the upwind rail.
* Take steps back if you want to turn
