I don't see a problem there... seems about normal to me.

yes, that's definitely a problem we all is called stoke!

Enjoy it and get on the water as much as you can!

Do you have a missy? Make sure she understands that she plays the second role from now on ;-)

Welcome! Just keep getting out there. The more you practice and get comfortable the faster you will progress. You are on your way... there will be some frustrating moments but that's all part of the steep learning curve. Stick with it!

Scary addiction for sure, but wouldn't trade it for anything. You know you have a problem when you find you never want to commit to ANYTHING!! in fear of losing a kite day.

Honey we are going to a cook out next week, oh okay sweetie but I may have a commitment at work :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry to tell you it gets worse before it gets better.

I gave my wife way too much spite going for family outings on windy days.

I have even a bigger problem than this. I have access to the ocean and nice wind almost every day. Problem is, I have no other kiteboarders to go with, no kite and am just starting out.
Curious enough, I am going to learn on my own and am interested in some company if anyone is interested in coming out to Manu'a to join me. I have accomidations as well. Thanks for any help and input in the matter. Zoltar
