Lawn mowers will be lawn mowersCOOP wrote: ↑Fri Aug 17, 2018 8:19 amWell if you think it's fun and making you a better kiter, then good for you.
I myself over the years push myself to master tricks. So if I master the dark slide kiteloop, I then push to add a backroll in to it. If I master the front roll transition I then try to do a double front roll and so on and so on. If one of the crew starts to pull off an awesome new trick it then inspires me to push myself and master it. That for me is where the fun, adrenaline is and it brings me back to the water over the many years with more enthusiasm to go harder not a make believe gimmick!
I think you guys are missing out if you need this to improve or brag
Progression oriented risk takers will be always doing so even with Woo's on board. Its a fact, i see it every session.
I enjoy watching the progression of people learning the timing to get into the air, becoming comfortable in the air, learning the kite skills to land softly, down loop transitions etc etc....I love to see the look on peoples faces.
Woo has pushed some lawn mowers to start taking some risks and trying different things.
I'll say it again...its all about what you find fun.
For me its as much about the log book as well. Lots of sessions aren't about the boost...they are logged as the other things you accomplished in that session...what you worked on etc.
I guess you never come off the water wondering if anyone saw that sick slide...nor ever mention that you nailed it.
