Thats great that you got some wind in Samui as I always thought that place was a graveyard for kiters.
And i wish that ppl who have got wind in Thailand would let us know.
I know its a bit of a lottery if u get wind here so its nice when it does blow, we know.
So many trips before and not 1 day on the water.
And its more of a holiday if I can get away from a westernised environment.
Plus i get a chance to practice a little Thai... hmm well I have to as no one speaks English here
Had an unusual episode where a Belgian guy, after a second of neglect got his kite firmly wedged in a tree.
Unable to free it without ripping it to shreds. He gave it up. He was totally pissed.
Within 5 minutes a young Thai guy comes along and says he will climb the tree and bring it down. We thought he was joking and would stop after 3 or 4 metres and come down. He went up and up... about 25 metres up. 1 slip and it would be all over. He deflated, unhooked the lines, wrapped it up and brought the bloody thing down.
Amazing and only in Thailand.
And he was well compensated for his effort.
Just wish i had my camera on me that day!
