why not? isn't it like the nature doing it?
And if it happens , I hope they start with my legs ; maybe they'll spit them out
because carbon & SS taste BAD !!
Kiting with others SAFELY truly needs to be like mountain climbing or back country skiing, where you respect the elements, count on each other, communicate, "pair up for safety", wait for the slow guy, etc., etc. Otherwise not kiting alone is just a false safety net which in my opinion is more dangerous than kiting alone.
Yes, YES, and YES !!!
And that is exactly how it is when i kite with my Friends !!
Down-winders in the North winter winds , we follow kiters with a boat ; great comradery, with
beer at the finish-line , 20 miles downstream !
I've driven the boat before ; still seemed to be Fun , just hanging out !!
Had a Bad yard-sale heading North on a down-winder to cottenwood once ; the best guy always
goes Last, to pick up gear & boards when needed, and that day i Needed my board
back. Thanks Darin !!!
Kiting with Friends is FUN and Safer than Not kiting with a friend.
We got a trick we call the double Argentinian back-roll :
Ya look to see if your buddy is looking,
Then Ya do the trick.
And last, Ya look to see if your buddy was Looking to see the trick Ya just did.
And it's WAY more FUN, than doing the same trick by yourself !!
Can Ya guess why we call it by the name we call it; my friend Santiago is
from Argentina ; he invented it !!
I've needed help , "More" than i've given it ; but i have done a rescue a time
or two , for others.
