Sine Wave Pattern

[The equipments have changed a lot since these photos were taken; however, the techniques stay the same].

Sequence 1 (light wind)

The wind is rather light. The kite is high up in the sky and the kitesurfer is preparing to dive it down to get going (note the position of the kitesurfer relative to the back ground in the subsequent photos).
The kite is diving down and the kitesurfer is picking up speed. He is preparing to move it up.
The kite is almost at the top and the kitesurfer is slowing down. He is prepare to move it down to gain more power to gather speed.
The kite is diving down.

Sequence 2 (strong wind)

The wind is strong. The kitesurfer starts to dive the kite down to go upwind (note the direction of the kitesurfer moving in the subsequent photos).
The kite is low and generating a lot of power. The kitesurfer is probably slightly overpowered and turns the board upwind to ease up the power.
The kite is moving up. The kitesurfer turns the board slightly down wind to retain the planning speed.

All the photos on this page were taken by Jan Pina for the Kitesurfing School.
