+1 on the Vid. Seeing the reel bar and tossing the kite up in the air to launch brings back memories. Not all good ones. Was fun learning.

BTW Supa thanks for that video link! good to look back...
funny to think how much of the appeal in early days was how "lit up" riders were, while now depower and user-friendliness is the definition of the sport for most.

Supa thanks for that video -- super fun to watch. My first job was on Long Island NY and being a midwestern boy it was amazing to go out and watch the windsurfers light it up !!

My first time up on a kiteboard was 09 so great to see what the early days were like

Never launch your kite on a bitch. She might get really angry.
