After the last post, what was a huge hit! I was wondering of the line :’ You only live once’ came in mind when you started with kite boarding?

It is of course a fact that more and more kite boarders are in their mid 30 when they are start with kite surfing, like myself. You also had the opportunity to hit a little ball sport, like Golf or Tennis and so many more. But the thrill and the speed combined with the power of the kite keeps on pulling us away from other sports.

The sport has the magic of turning it into a “lifestyle’. It will let you escape you from your life when you are on the water. It will enhance your dreams, hopes and makes you wonder why you not discovered this earlier.

Just the simple tool like some lines and a kite. That’s all that it is! It amazes me every time when I am on the water.

Do we use the sport as a cover from getting old? Do we need to accept that our handle-pass move is not going to be as fluent anymore when we are over 45?

Off course! But If you ask any person who comes of the water when he finished his session and has a smile like “The Joker’ out of the Batman film, would you change your sport for anything in the world??

I can guarantee that they only think of one line: Never! “You only live once”.

The kite is a 2004 Best Yarga, I think Best got EH to design it or used one of his designs. They were pretty sweet kites for the time and the price.

Nice one, maurice. I don't know what it is about kiting, I may never know for sure, but it's the most incredible activity I know... Nothing compares. The only drawback is, the wind doesn't always want to play and the frustration is morbid, cancerous... I don't know about living once. My ego thinks it's immortal and all the reasoning in the world can't convince it otherwise. Also, you are gonna get old anyway, but someone once said: "it's a disgrace to grow old through sheer carelessness before seeing what kind of man you may become by developing your bodily strength and beauty to their highest limit"... I understand there are some ethical problems with that but you only got one body, make the best of it!
