" snowkiting, the best thing to happen to kiteboarding "
i miss chasta
he was THE snowkite visionary !!
there's some pessimistic attitudes above
yeah,can be tough for all to line up, but when it does,WOW !
it's really not about kitesurfing verse snowkiting, they're such different animals.
this is a great topic, because its time for snowkiting to come into its own !
snowkiting is a lot more than something kitesurfers do in the "off season"
and it's time....snowkites time.
if anything could change,kite companies need to step up and support more core,
driven snowkite visionaries,
call out companies the have no snow team riders ,don't buy their gear.
and more support for companies that do,and brands that support snow riders
step up with more support with gear ,events,photographers and filming
seems like a no brainier ,tens of millions of skiers & boarders as potential customers,duh!
as far as organized events blame the forest service/blm ect. red tape
they suck,I witnessed the whole best team shut down from filming in Utah
because the lacked the required permits.
Europe ,as usual with "extreme sports",is way ahead of the us in growth
blame the lawyers,and sue happy Americans !
even tho the us,with the execution of Norway ,
may have more terrain / wind potential and diversity
keep chasing those perfect days !
