Nice thread Plummet! Supporting the trick-less version of kitesurfing is very noble. I personally cannot do a single run without trying something tricky but I have respect for people who just come and go, it is what they like and that is fine!
In lightwind kitesurfing, coming and going is sometimes all one can really do anyway, it is nice to cruise around powered by a light breeze, very relaxing - well, throwing a trick every now and then is irresistible temptation but still..!
dammit i'm not offensive enough to sporn a multi page thread of hatred!.... bugger.
Ned i find myself hard to catagorise. I'm not a trickster but I throw tricks down on a occasions, i ride waves but and not a dedicated wave rider. i look to loop but and not a mega looper.... So i'm sort a generalist. ok at most master of none!.
ps the one thing i don't do is wake style. Don't see the point personally. why go for low tricks that all look exactly the same when you can jump big?
Lastly if i was going to catergerise myself i'd call me an adventure rider. Thats what spins my boat the most. doing epic distances and riding new spots. But I haven't been on mant adventure rides of late......
