A good day for me is 4 hours on the same kite.

Having to pump 4 kites and being over powered the whole time sounds like shit craic to me. I'd rather pump 1 kite and be perfectly powered

Started at 8:30am finished at 4:30pm. My 12m and 9m sit in the darkness begging to be flown, I pump them up indoors just to let them live a little each month. Was fun as hell seeing how each kite performed from each gear they had. Was like a one day full quiver test back-to-back-to-back. The pack down and sand was much worse than the pump :wink:

Good for you that is was a Saturday because it can be a bad day if you are stuck at work from 9 to 5 on one of the windiest day of the year
Glad you enjoyed yourself and did not get hurt
I'm like STFU rig one kite and that's it....but in your defense you were there the whole day
Perhaps after 15+ years of kiting it won't be as much fun to pump the whole quiver

You know it's a great day when it's 28-30 knots, your 7m is in the sweet spot, it's flat on the inside and head high+ on the outside, you start getting tired so come in to munch some energy bars and drink some water, then relaunch into exactly the same conditions and continue until a critical part of your body is about to fail. Unfortunately I'm now an old grandad so my body does start to hurt after a few hours. :-(
