Rickster, good example of how Webster has picked up the overhyped use of ESPN lingo and written it down. My older Webster (1984) has this definition: of the highest or utmost degree. Sounds like Peebs and co are tired of the contributions of mass media and marketing to language. Can't blame 'em. Look at it as you may, you can kitesurf without exposing yourself to high physical risk and you can kitesurf without pushing your limits agressively, which makes kitesurf like almost all other sports a non-extreme sport unless you practise it in an "extreme" manner.
ANON O mess,
No body but you have this wrong!
Websters got it in 84, highest or utmost degree,,skip to 02,,, of danger!
thats it! they got it, I got it, now its your turn.
Get this, extreme = utmost danger accquired by the participant on his own accord!
do you get it NOW.
Any nice person can be extreme by doing somthing dangerious on purpose!
To all others the same is just an unfortunate accident that happened because he did not know better!
Extreme is knowing better but not careing to avoid danger.
KITING CAN be and is extreme if you choose it to be.
Kiteing can be and still is extreme if you do not know any better.
ONE coin, two sides, both the same, EXTREME!
The difference is in understanding the difference.
the wind sucks hear, 35+ to 45
Extreme is rarely fun?
fo go yo bro no more extreme, your just pissin me off, not really
Right on Alkbob,
I forgot to mention I do have big respect for the extreme skills , my buds are all extreme kiters.
I ask em how does that feel to do that? "sweet" or "fuc" is all I get.
My one bud who does grinds off the gear rack on his van say's the more powered I am the easier it is to nail it!
I wouldn't know about that but, I DO believe him!
