Third time for just you, Bille:
"Kiting since 1963."
No photos for Bille.
Your need is puzzling.
Your own paper-tigers are puzzling
. Your post today in OZ Report that was taken off ... is puzzling.
There are photos of me in 1963 at my wedding, but I did not take them or have them taken; and on that day I became a wing of a long tether; stalls and crashes since!
She is my X, but I am still tethered and still crashing; some kite am I.
Now you are putting up kites of your own making that fit your world and want to force such template on me; that won't work, Bille, as long as your KB world is tight to your local personal experience without an avenue to appreciate a larger KB world, then you construct your own standoff;
have a pleasant ride with that
Each person's story, I hold, is infinitely important and unique; I've some math proofs for such that sustain me in such position. That includes your story, Bille; and I hope to help extend part of your story to others as I continue to contribute in my kiting pattern on my boards and platforms.
=========================================Meanwhile, still respecting the topic you started and invited me in PM to visit,
I will aim to add some "ON-Topic" matter in this post, as others and I did in former posts in this thread.
Each offer in the topic thread, so far, seemed to me to add some interesting matter to study. The owner of the forum is certainly welcome to his offers. So far, you seem to state that the 1980s suffice for the owner and perhaps yourself, maybe; yet you seem to offer that you have an early time in your experience that you might call KB for you; I must track your various dates again to be sure.
Maybe a KB Timeline
could be constructed. Yes. Let's do that
. Thanks for the inspiration toward actually getting the Timeline
going: KiteBoarding History Timeline Good on you, Bille.
All are welcome to post Timeline
items here in your topic thread; I will pick up the items from here. Or anyone may send in items direct to the email address given at the Timeline
Personal starts or significant noteworthy KB actions are invited to the Timeline
. Give what dates, references, details, photos, drawings, links, etc. that you wish.
So, the when-and-where for KB beginnings will probably show on the Timeline
. Surely, various perspectives will accumulate on the Timeline
. The forum owner's notes will get posted; Bille, your Timeline
related notes will get posted. The document will be a growing dynamic item, never finished! We can deepen the Timeline
by file trees linked.
So, what have we about KB beginnings? Still, what is a kite system? What is a board or board set? What is the system operation that is "kiteboarding" and by whom? Fun!
