I think this poll can be interesting to see how often you manage to go kitesurfing.

What will be the average?

Let's find out!

I go once a week May through September (inclusive) during the summer
months. Then storms during fall and winter and North wind days
in spring.
(In gusty 30-40mph stormy conditions, I windsurf instead of kite)

Kite days

Postby LVRob » Fri Aug 05, 2005 7:33 pm

So far Dec - 04 Aug 05

Days kited - 122
Kiteable days but passed - 40
Away traveling / no data - 26
Days not kiteble for 16m (my big kite) - 55

Projection for 05, I'm not going to count Aug & Sept I plan to travel because it's typicaly light. Figureing 20 days/mo for Oct, Nov, Dec wich are good months here that will be anouther 60 days for a total of 182 days projected for 05.

I never understood how could one enjoy kiting every day. Even on vacation, when I kite every second day I feel like going to work. This is why I never envy to professional kiters (and porn industry pros, for that matter:-)

In 2004 I did 106 days. So far for 2005 I have done 77 days.

We normally get to kite 5-6 days per week between October and March. We used to get a wind drought around April but that has not really happened this year. The only problems are getting the windy days to line up with days off and winter winds are gusty northerlies or stormy westerlies.
