[/b]I live in Idaho, near Hood River where we have 4 distinct seasons. I am an avid snowboarder and kiter. I often think about moving somewhere where it is warm and windy year round. Is there such a place? And would I miss the snow? Any snowboarders missing the snow? Am I a case of the grass is always greener? Help :(

I don't think so - I was an avid snowboarder for many years - I even moved to Lake Tahoe to pursue it, but ever since I found kiteboarding everything has taken the back seat - With ski season coming quick, I don't see myself spending the time or the money to go snowboarding, I'd much rather go kiting - All that said, I do think balance is good, but so far kiting is just way to much fun, and I don't get to do it nearly as much as I would like - Thats why I'm making a move in spring to do nothing but kite for as long as the money holds up

Thanks for your reply Stiffing. Just got back from Schweitzer not 30 minutes ago, where we had 14" of fresh overnight. It was a great day AND I am still jonesing to kite. So, where do you kite now and where are you headed in the spring?
