Who still enjoys a good old fashioned boost session?

For me it never gets old. Whenever the wind is right to boost big I've gotta boost.

Its what I love the most about kiting. Blasting through the air. Awesome.

For Me, anything over 8ft, and under 12ft is Perfect ; hardly
constitutes a Boost though ; does it ?

Had a fun one recently, it was a warm day after very cold weather, so there was fog over the water to 5m or so, then higher up it was clear, and much stronger wind. Made for relaxed riding until you sent the kite, then big "double" boosts, with nothing visible but fog around and the bottom beneath, through very clear water. Could see other riders' kites, from 150m or so, but not the riders, until they came close.
It was surreal, and probably not very safe, except that it was only 3 careful riders, we knew each other and knew the spot well.

Oh yes!

What bugs me on my local is not many attempt to really boost?!

I've seen only once a really, really big air. And he was on a foil (does that count? :)
