Kitesurfing ? Im wondering how many of you guys would try this . I have been in the water since i can remember , Growing up in California , then moving to Dirty jerz in 96 . Then i think 2002 i was handed a slingshot fuel . At that moment the stoke grew even more for the oceans bounty . Those days when the winds are honking onshore for 2 days and your frothing at the mouth to surf , you grab your kite and surfboard and go out for a long downwinder . Until your legs give out . I would say on an average 2 hour downwinder you can catch 30 or more waves without having to duck dive or paddle out . And let me tell you . You can take the tops off waves when kite surfing ,knock down kids standing on the waters edge by doing a toe side to heel side tack and throw a big bucket off water at them . Always with permission from the parents , those kids never even know it coming , SPLASH!! BAM!! , You can catch up to sections that are normally to fast to catch just surfing . But just like surfing it takes time , funds, learning etiquettes , Self rescues ,it has its limitations but its well worth the reward . Yes its expensive , i know , i was just seeing what holds most you guys back from at least trying it for a bit . I apologize i know its a surfing forum. but as kiter I'm a surfer at heart .So SI is more then just a surfing forecasts but also a kite surfing forecast .The forum always interesting , plus i like the comics and picture too. And this ad with a brunette doing sitting squats And she supposed to be 54 .
