Re: Graduate to kitesurfing
- "kitesurfing will be both safe and popular." - doubt that.
There's not a one of us who's not been in a period of seroius trouble a time or two.
For us, the lucky one's, it has been while in deep water with a downwind buffer.
"Popular" - with observers perhaps.
Kiting certainly attracts a lot of onlookers, but most of them make comments like;
"You'd have to be really strong."...while watching one of the better kiters in our local
crew; a 120lbs. woman?! I suspect onlookers think kitesurfing is much more
physically demanding than they would ever consider "fun".
...and, it has been my observation; the bulk of curious civilians are older, not younger.
Perhaps it is my locale, where it appears the most energy expended by young people
is sucking a liter of soda thru a straw in a single breath...washing down xtra-large
fries not yet swallowed.
Besides, who would do this if it was like sitting on a 10M pontoon boat with a 5M kite
Play hard - safely.
