Wrong! I'd forgotten that on a kiteboarding you are wearing a harness which pulls you up out of the water. Wake-boarding is more like water skiing. I was surprised at how much pull on the arms was required to get up and going on the water. After about 5 minutes and halfway across the bay I let go of the rope to let my leg muscles have a rest. During the next pull up I heard or felt something give way in my lower back, accompanied by a stabbing pain. Game over for the time being. At the moment I'm laying on the bed dosed up with a cocktail of painkillers from the local Klinik, hoping that I feel better before its suitcase-shifting time.
