Luke McGillewie and Donovan O’Neale: Melkbos

Luke McGillewie and Donovan O’Neale Hit up a session in The Bos, Luke adjusting to the cold water after bumming around in Le Morne for the past few weeks. Springtime is a very unique time for kiting in Cape Town, light Westerlies with small clean swell make’s for some fun sessions. Luke’s training for the next stop of the KSP in Ireland, lets hope he gets some onshore winds.  Photo’s By Bianca Asher

Luke McGillewie shows us how to tack a kiteboard/surfboard

For best results, you should already be able to perform the basic gybe transitions before learning this maneuver.

The Tack is a useful move for changing direction without losing downwind ground. This move can prove extremely handy when trying to get out past breaking waves or during course racing.
