Re: Kiting prognosis after heart attack

Hi, I thought I would post an update. My wife and I had our first session today. 11 weeks after my operation. It was a calm session in shallow water and 18 knots of wind. I cannot explain the feeling as I took off on my first start. "I'm Back!" is what I said to myself out aloud. The stoke, oh, the ...

Re: Kiting prognosis after heart attack

I was underweight, avoided all the wrong fats, ate oatmeal and granola for breakfast, fruit salad for lunch. Red meat, maybe 2x a year, lots of veggies. Spearfish once a month fo...

Re: Kiting prognosis after heart attack

Thanks for the answers. I'm 60 but I feel 40. 2020 was supposed to be the year I hit a 15m jump. The cardiologist who ran the operation has never heard of kitesurfing. It was hard to get a real guide from him. he did say that for spearfishing, I should not submerge for 2 months. So today there were ...

Re: Leaving San Blas for San Andres Colombia

Just an update...

We love it so much here and there, that we spent six months in in both places, 2016,17,18 and 19. The original post is still valid.
We would love to share with more senior kiters. Both locations are wonderful. San Andres has lots of accommodation options, San Blas, not so much.
