Re: Telling your kitesurfing wife you actually want to be a wingsurfer

Nope, that's telling your windsurfing wife you want to be a kiter :) When I told my wife (medical person) that I was more interested in kitesurfing than racing motorcycles she said good, that's a lot safer than the class you were racing in (where in 10 years 2-1/2* out of about 80 in my class died ...

Re: Easy kite to learn kiteloops
