Definitely my experience. I get very chilled kiting...but increasingly uptight the longer I am away from it. As I work in London during the week...I'm spitting nails when Friday comes...plummet wrote:I'm pretty chilled on the water. I'm more in a zen zone doing what I enjoy.
My personality change is off the water when I haven't had a session for a while. Then I become a grumpy wind junky needing a fix. I get particularly pissed off if there's glorious wind and I can't utilise it because of other commitments.
... it takes me a lot to get to the violent stage but this dude came with in a bee's dick I tell ya!Westozzy wrote:Don't know if I'd like to see you angry robbie, or indeed be the one who made you angry!
But then again I reckon I could out run ya, so I might be a chance...lol,
It doesn't really get crowded enough where we kite, but I have had a few incidents. My brother and I had an interesting upbringing, and spent a lot of our youth and early twenties hitting first talking later.
That alone was enough to to teach me to always stay calm when kiting and especially on the road. It also taught me nothing good comes from violence and also you are one punch away from hitting someone who can really mess you up...lol
But this experience in my youth has somehow given me the ability to stay calm when others are losing their heads,,,have stopped a number of potential bust ups at crowded spots.
That being said...if my son was put in danger ( he only 5 at the moment wont start kiting until he is 6....ha ha) my reckless behaviour (and I know Robbies son so it makes me all that a bit more angry reading it), I would see red. If the guy was being a wanker when I approached him I am certain ( unfortunately) I would give him a large dentist bill with my head, knees and elbows....tip don't use your hands fingers and wrists break.
But yes it can bring to worst out in us....only human after all.

Once I'm out there I'm pretty chilled
