      Hi Josh and Steve,

      Glad to see that you guys are still with the group.

      I am no longer the moderator so I have no idea who is still reading the
      group. Maybe Tim or Tunico may know by checking the member database.

      I would be nice to know who is doing what now.

      As for me, I still kite fairly frequently (besides the daily 15-30
      minutes exercise, kiting keep me in good health) and operate a local
      kite school.

          I'm still reading although i didnt come on board as early as some of you?, Hung, Your advice ( and others here)helped me bigtime and I appreciate that, I got started on 'New Wave Concept air foils" and learned by myself on desert lakes in Arizona, Lots of us paid our dues learning on our own on equipment which was less then ideal and groups like this were our only contact, Nowadays equipment is so good in comparison the newbe's have no clue the dedication it took back then.
          ?Life keeps changing, I moved from the desert to the west coast and started www.Kiteworks.org? ( a Kite repair bussines) while kiting became a lifestyle rather than a sport for me , dealing with the meager winds in San Diego became more than I could deal with so I moved again to South Padre Island Texas , One of the USA's kiting destinations and still do kite repair but not like in San diego where I stayed much busier, now I am semi retired, Kiting everyday there is wind , surfing when there are waves and basically just loving life.
          Thanks to all you who helped change my life for the better.
          On another note, it seems to me with the better equipment these days people dont really look after each other on the water as much as they used to, an incident 3 weeks ago brought this home, the winds were light and my boyfriend and?I went to the flats to mess around with some older kites we hadnt used in a long time, just for something to do and to get wet, a few others were there but only one other getting set up. by the time I launched ,my boyfriend ( John) and Rob were on the water, I headed out going upwind of both when I noticed Robs kite on the water and john heading downwind towards him, I couldnt see Rob moving or trying to relaunch so I went downwind also, when I got there John was resusitating Rob , I went to shore to have someone call 911 and get more help out to John, Rob had a brain anurism, passed out and drowned, John revived him and He is now recovering from brain surgery, The point is, no matter what your skill level or what the conditions, S**T happens, look after your fellow kiters and keep a constant eye on anyone down on the water, take a minute to check them out, The life saved just might be yours !!
          Happy new year and happy tenth Kitesurf !!

              I've never kitesurfed but want to learn. I purchased a Beamer 3.6 for a

              I am no longer the moderator so I have no idea who is still reading the

              I would be nice to know who is doing what now.

              As for me, I still kite fairly frequently (besides the daily 15-30
              minutes exercise, kiting keep me in good health) and operate a local
              kite school.

                So I guess that makes me the other extreme. I joined a month or so ago.
                I've never kitesurfed but want to learn. I purchased a Beamer 3.6 for a
                trainer and I'm looking forward to getting on the water this spring or
                summer.

                I'm still reading although i didnt come on board as early as some of
                you?,
                Hung, Your advice ( and others here)helped me bigtime and I appreciate
                that,
                I got started on 'New Wave Concept air foils" and learned by myself on
                desert lakes in Arizona, Lots of us paid our dues learning on our own on
                equipment which was less then ideal and groups like this were our only
                contact, Nowadays equipment is so good in comparison the newbe's have no
                clue the dedication it took back then.
                ?Life keeps changing, I moved from the desert to the west coast and
                started
                www.Kiteworks.org? ( a Kite repair bussines) while kiting became a
                lifestyle
                rather than a sport for me , dealing with the meager winds in San Diego
                became more than I could deal with so I moved again to South Padre
                Island
                Texas , One of the USA's kiting destinations and still do kite repair
                but
                not like in San diego where I stayed much busier, now I am semi retired,
                Kiting everyday there is wind , surfing when there are waves and
                basically
                just loving life.
                Thanks to all you who helped change my life for the better.
                On another note, it seems to me with the better equipment these days
                people
                dont really look after each other on the water as much as they used to,
                an
                incident 3 weeks ago brought this home, the winds were light and my
                boyfriend and?I went to the flats to mess around with some older kites
                we
                hadnt used in a long time, just for something to do and to get wet, a
                few
                others were there but only one other getting set up. by the time I
                launched
                ,my boyfriend ( John) and Rob were on the water, I headed out going
                upwind
                of both when I noticed Robs kite on the water and john heading downwind
                towards him, I couldnt see Rob moving or trying to relaunch so I went
                downwind also, when I got there John was resusitating Rob , I went to
                shore
                to have someone call 911 and get more help out to John, Rob had a brain
                anurism, passed out and drowned, John revived him and He is now
                recovering
                from brain surgery, The point is, no matter what your skill level or
                what
                the conditions, S**T happens, look after your fellow kiters and keep a
                constant eye on anyone down on the water, take a minute to check them
                out,
                The life saved just might be yours !!
                Happy new year and happy tenth Kitesurf !!
                Denise
