    My wife got into it last year, so I figured I'd give it a try. Marriage lesson of the day, don't easily learn something that took your wife a long time. Kitesurfing is as much like surfing as...

    I tried one about a year ago for the first time and fell in love. Now on big days when my arms go jello after a few hours on the shortboard, I'll bring it out and have a blast. Recently, I've seen...
