Here I am in 2008. I don't have many pictures, and I have no video. I kite for myself, no need to show everybody.

Kiting on a 2.5m kite in surf = far from average weak riding :kiff:
I saw a squirrel in a gimp suit at a one-man foam party.

Seriously? That was a weak-ass video for surfing, but the strapless air was nice. I've had better rides and carves on my 'door with no fins on my toe side.

Like most people though, I bet you've not had a camera around for the best stuff eh.

There's a guy at Mohave, named John G ; he weighs maybe 170 or
so. On the 3ft chop in 30+ wind, he will do a series of turns that literally
makes the face of the wave Explode on each turn. He'll do that
after coming out of a 20' jump ; and land on the face of the wave.
It's Full compression and Full extension on Each turn ; he kites with Passion
and Ya see raw-animal in his eyes when he's doing it !!

You should be able to do the same thing as John ; but you didn't .

Now where is your video or pics billie? Or what you have no videos or pics of you ripping on lake? :lol: Surely one of your many women has done some filming while watching her man!! Cant wait to see your massive skills and those decades of surf experience translated to kiteboarding! :lol:
Hard to do that with no feet ; but now that i got your attention, read that part
about Jon G and tell me what i'm trying to say to Ya. I Ain't banging on your
cage, just trying to rattle it a Bit !!
Ya see, you kinda Need an EGO to be Reilly Fricken Good at something, (you gOt it) !!
You also got a Lot of balance ; & the Air was Good.

Dude, tune your ego down, and your turn your riding Up ; you really Could be Good !!

Anyway, while you were skating around on your board, i borrowed a buddies kite
and jumped off a hill. That Rush is why i turned down a Free sponsorship for
kite equipment , so i could do what I'm passionate about, (it ain't Kite boarding yet).
Hold-on ---
But think Will be in a few more seasons. Kite-boarding is Almost as fun as a HG, but
with 1/10 the risk.

:nono: The only thing weak was the waves. Riding is solid. Of course I've ridden much bigger waves in better wind direction for down the line riding using smaller boards... But have you or anyone here ever ridden a 2.5 m kite in the surf? Doubt that's something anyone on kiteforum or probably anyone else in the world other than me can say.. :kiff:
