You care enough that you opened a threat just to tell us how you don't care.

Btw, big news! I heard you can do both. Kiting and biking. Some people already do it, believe it or not!

Bought some new kites and boom, there hasn't been any wind.
I haven't been kiting in weeks and its pissing me off.
Ok, I was finally able to fly my new 10m yesterday and it was a blast. :thumb:

Care also
Record is 13 days in a row of not kitesurfing because of no wind...rain..bad direction...etc
Was so unbearable
So addicted
3-4 times a week is what body & mind needs
No other sport or activity will do ... got to harness the wind

I’m a city person but grew up in and around nature. Kiting is like an afternoon vacation every time. Read some cheesy quote a while back that the best therapist comes with four (five works too!) lines and a bar. I’ll take that.

The worst part of about mountain biking is if you crash there's a good chance for an injury that prevents you from kiteboarding. But if you have given up kiting I guess that's ok? I have no idea why anyone would mountain bike and kiteboard. The mountain biking is pretty risky and that's the only reason I don't do it. I could not stand if it I had to be off the water for 2 months recovering.
