I love the simplicity and purity of the ride on Kumu. I can remember the first time I went sailing and we were motoring out through the harbour. When we got out past the breakwall the the motor was cut and the sails went up. I can remember that feeling... It was as if the boat came alive. I get a similar feeling when riding Kumu; the board weighs around 12kg so its a bit of a handful carrying it down the beach. The wood comes alive once it hits the water.
