Hopefully you will find and re-marry a water girl who can ride alongside you in most crazy conditions
Sharing the stoke with your soulmate 24/7/365 is (epic) :wink:

Haven't you seen blasts video's. He's already done that. He's an old dude that's pick himself up a young hottie that kites with him. So I guess that feeds his stoke also.

Which begs the question what is a male version of a cougar? Is that a sugar daddy?

I love a good kite boarding dream.

You dont get responses from people that are not stoked because they are not on KF. The posted question draws stoked people.

After 10 years I still cannot get enough of this mental sport, COMPLETELY addicted. Went out the other day in horizontal pissing rain, the kite resembled a paddling pool on the beach rather than a kite but I still had a banging session.

Being able to be part of such an adrenaline filled past time is a privilege that not many in life are able to experience; it provides another focus in life that enables you to live for the moment, something you can very rarely do. This is my passion and because of it I do not envy anybody or anything; though I do wish my kiteloop backloops were a bit higher and smoother! :)

Been at it since 2006, gods getting into kiting was intense. Still haven't felt anything like it. Lived and breathed kiting for the first four years or so. Became an instructor. Traveled doing that for a few years. These days im very picky about conditions, dont kite flat water at all. Damaged knees mean I don't ride a board with straps, and at the moment no fins either. Skimboards and strapless tricks are keeping me interested at the moment. Still love it but not with the intensity of a new romance it once had.

Ahhh.... some more stoke.

Spring is here and that brings the westerlies, storms, seabreazes. Yeha.

In the last week I've flown all my kites. 13,10,8,6 from monster surf to boosting even a 35-40 knot storm session....

Life is good.

I had such a blast yesterday! Glassy shalow beatiful bay and steady 25 knots. Sun setting at my back, full moon rising in front. Drinking beers with bodies on the breaks and just enjoying life! Today though not so much! It's like sex! It's great while it lasts and then you feel ashamed and broken:) Hate kiteboarding;)
