Started 1998 Wipika 2 line and F1 directional. Average 150+ days a year here in the SF Bay area.
My ACL's torn from windsurfing, without surgical intervention, are doing quite well with kiting.
After recovering from a loft and while holding kite sitting on beach counting my blessings another kiter "saved" me by jumping on my shoulder with his knee and dislocating it, resulting in a torn rotater cuff and luxation of shoulder, still not healed well.
Have had two different rib fractures from crashing into bar.
Gained 15 lbs, kiting doesn't give the workout windsurfing use to, or maybe it's the age thing, just turned 62.
Windsurfing did more damage to me than kiting for same time period.
