It will change!
I started windsurfing in 1974, entered my first competition in 76, before harnesses were invented, pure muscle power.
So hard, so few people involved, so lonely,
It soon changed,after 10 years I certainly was not alone, 10 years more and it was global.
Then I looked at kitesurfing and thought Jesus! Are they mad? They will all die! 2 years later And I was in.
Many lonely years followed, then boom! 2003 and it was mega popular, little safety, low quality, but such fun, manic and mega addictive.
Then foiling made an appearance around 2010, it looked like rocket science, no one I knew could do it, it was said to be impossible and would die away.so forget it!
I did.untill 6 months ago.
Just like the aforementioned sports it has evolved into something more accessible, safer, easier, more enjoyable, and will in time overtake twin tip numbers.
I just wish I was as young as I was at the start of the windsurfing boom, or at the start of the Twin tip boom.
But I am so glad I managed to cling on to the start on the Kite foil Boom, but sad I may never get to the performance level I attained in the last two sports, this kite foil sport seems to be so much harder, but so did windsurfing and so did twin tips during the early years.
So I am going to hang on as long as possible, and hope to enjoy the high points I am not even yet aware of yet.
The bad bit about this sport is the fact that you need lots of room on the water, plenty of space around you, the more the better, so lots of other guys foiling is not good news on smaller water spaces.
Will this change with better gear evolved over many years, well in my experience the answer has to be yes, but how will this gear look?
if I knew that then I would make it,and make a good living from it.
I just hope that I can afford to buy it and enjoy it when it becomes available.
