ok. might be 2 pesimistic and aggressive language 4 me, but what the hell, i agree.
i dont have that much experience, i havent seen hundrends of kiters where i kite, but 1 thing i know is that nearly all of us as soon as we feel confident with that thing on the air we want to impress.
who hasnt had the @#$%* feeling of power while kiting?
and i m not talking only about impressive tricks and high jumps. i m talking about just kiting with confidence and nice style, not dropping the kite and after that BEING ABLE TO JUMP NEAR KITERS AND WINDSURFERS, NEAR THE BEACH AND OF COURSE GOING IN AS MUCH OVERPOWERED AS ONE CAN
You go down to the beach, see the conditions and choose kite size depending on what others have - does that ring any bells to anyone else or is it just me?
then you come out of the water feeling satisfied that you didnt get killed in some sort of accident, that you managed the kite in conditions you thought you couldnt...
the danger is known & safe kiting is not only about having the best QR but about willing to enjoy without sacrificing someone..
i guess its up to us all to improve our attitude, stay out of others way and enjoy...
