80-90 a year, here at the big lake in Japan and occasionally at the beaches down south. Might break 100 this year though...

I get to use my 10m a couple of times a year, the 13 maybe 25 or so, and the rest of the time, I have to put up as much sail as I can :( I've never used my 7.

Hoping to do some snowkiting this year...

Living in Vancouver, Canada, with a wife and 5 year old son and a full time job I get about 2 days a month outside of the summer. In summer we have almost guaranteed wind near by in Squamish so I can manage 4-6 days a month.

Summer.....6 times a week
Fall.............4 times a week
Winter....... 3 times a week
Spring........4 times a week

Average a week 4.25 x 52wk ...so 200 or a bit more is about how much i go out

Shortest session can be just as short as 30-45 minutes..but most are 1 to 2 hours

Close to our condo in Florida Atlantic ocean 80%....intra-coastal river nearby 20% (if offshore in surf)

.............. :surf: :sun: ......most sessions 95% late in afternoon or after work..only 5% in the morning.....

I kite about 200 days a year using my 5-7-9-13 meter kites.

I use 13M only with race board for about 20 days.

I use 9M with my twin-tip board for maybe 60 days

I use 5-7 M with surf boards to ride wave for the remaining days.

I kite mostly in the winter (Sep. to May)

I live in Penghu, Taiwan.

Oh man, I'm getting depressed. I thought I kited a lot, but apparently I'm missing out. I don't think I can ever make 200 days a year :cry: Need to move somewhere with more wind

wonder whether some app developer could make an easy kite session log-in app. It wouldn't be that difficult. Could be somehow lined up with google map so that you can remember spots you find while travelling or to get stats around your home spots.

I kite in south sweden 100+ days a year even in tough winter when abstinence is killling :lol: :lol:
Than I add regular travelling sessions, 2 x vacation 10-20+, other occasions 10+, I travel a lot and I have always with me 2 kites and a split board. Generally is 9m 40% 12m 30%, 6,5m 20%, 14m 10%.

Than I built myself a new kite and there you go I keep kiting everyday, whenever I want. :o :lol:

I will be at around 80 sessions this year, local rides but of course SBX, OBX, Shippagan and Cuba help me increase my number to 80 otherwise I would be at around 50 just here in Quebec. You guys that can get 200 kiting days without having to go for various kite trips are sooo bless! Lucky guys :thumb:
