Why Kiteboarding is so Healing, if its done right?

The strong is wining when the wind is light,
the weak hopes it will change for the right.
The hard core is riding all the elements and goes with the flow,
rips it up in either high or low for becoming the one in the now.
Can you give up the concept of only light or high wind riding is good :?:
Or Wake-style or Free-style, male and female, dark and light,
soft and hard or cold and hot :?:
Can you let go of all these dualities and embrace the “one”
without skepticism or panic :?:
If so, you can experience the internal energy surfing even without riding.
If not, go back and fly a kite :!:
The hard core knows that not only the Kite and Board efficiency is the key,
but he interplays and imparts his own version of energy wave for shredding
for Dynamic Light Wind Compliance Factor
Do that :!: And now I tell you why?

A rider’s seeks equilibrium of gravity through edging
while experiencing forces of contraction and expansion
in that medium through his muscles and nerves.
By maintain a constant pressure through edging
that is equilibrium to the selected strength of gravity.
That’s why I would say kiteboarding is dancing with gravity.
Internally, mind makes perception into reality.
To ride out with gravity we must see it first.
However, gravity cannot be seen, what can be seen is only its traces.
Thus, we have to learn it by feeling the sensation of gravity internally.
As the feeling developing and grounded more and more
kiteboarding starts to turn internal and everything reveals and heals.
Than kiteboarding becomes more philosophical than physical.
Now you know why my Odyssey is dancing with gravity. :dance2:
