I’ve never ridden a strapless board?

Riding a strapless Kite Alaia is intuitive

A Kite Alaia is really simple to use.

Feet position on the Kite Alaia
Position your feet towards the center of the board

You place your front foot on the center-line of the board, in the middle of the board. Dive your kite & step onto the board with your rear foot; place your back foot just behind your front foot. It really is as easy as that. Initially, when you want to turn around to come back you may fall and have to water-start but there’s an explanation about that here.
