just logged back in for the first time a while.......looked at my join date of '02 and laughed- 9 years on here, and 10 riding-Time flies when you are havin fun-keep the following in mind:
the gear is better, thankfully. but safety is all in the hands of the user- never forget that
kites come, kites go- it aint the equipment that does the ridin- you do
...one good stuporman episode taught me that I was not immune to stupidity disguised as bravado. 2 shoulder surgeries and a ripped bicep are my reminder
a bro lost to a shark at the home break taught me never to kite alone- miss you Steve
there is nothing like catchin a head high swell and 20k on a 9 and a rocketfish 5'0" with a few good friends
Enjoy the ride and the day.
