Seriously? 22 kites!
So is that considered a quiver or a collection? You only get to count the ones that hold air and are ready to fly.
I definitely understand the need for redundancy. You need enough stuff that breaking something is a pause, not a stop. There is a perfect amount of reverence for a kite. You should love em, but not so much that you hesitate to lend em to a trusted friend. Otherwise sell it. You sir would make the very best of kite buddies!
Currently have 8 kites. Used all but one in the couple years. Used to be a minimalist, but that went off the rails when my board quiver started to diversify. Eventually it devolved from three kites into three quivers, well maybe four. Wave, twin tip, foil and snow. Some nice overlap in there! Would pull that last one out in a heartbeat on the right day so they are all definitely still on tap.
