had the same problem when I had lost my gear. After half an hour of swimming I finally reached the beach and wanted to ask the people wether they had seen my board. But out of my mouth came...nothing. Not a single word. Because all the muscles in my face were frozen and paralyzed.
Resurrection of an old thread but guess what, it's time! Water getting colder up here we have been in the teens and getting the urge to kite. Spent 2 weeks in S. Florida over thanksgiving and kited so much I had blisters on my hands. I now want some of the cold stuff, anyone else getting some ?
Nice! At least you have buddies with balls enough to go, I always end up by myself .
