Perro, good post homie and I agree.
To the haters: What is this forum a retirement home for old bitter lesbians?.....lighten up Francis.
To answer your question: Yeah kiting does look cool and may turn a few heads, but it isn't a great thing to mix picking up ladies with in my opinion. As the safety patrol mentioned, you should probably be out far enough from the beach to not be a threat to swimmers and beach goers. So there's that. Secondly, I bet some of us older duffers look like sausages stuffed into too small of casing in our wetsuits........so there's that too.
For me the biggest reason is that I just want to concentrate on ripping/having fun/not killing myself or others while kiting. I can get laid any other time.
I've brought a few girls kiting a couple times and it's a fail/fail.
As mentioned, kiting is good when the wind is ripping which = cold, sandblasted, miserable girl on beach. So as soon as you check in or take a break she will be lobbying to leave. Leaving early isn't an option on windy days.
To answer Toby:
I think a big tweaked grab would get more attention. To the average civilian on the beach, they can't tell how hard a switch mobe or 540 handle pass is. Big air has more Oooooooh factor methinks.
