what are you thinking of when kiting on the water??

Postby deadmanic » Thu Jan 26, 2006 6:04 pm

I know it sounds ridiculous but havent you ever though about it??

I always i think about the last song i was listening in the car,....

others, that i have to do that trick that i had in my mind the whole week and that when the times arrive to do it i always have an excuse ( someone downwind, no good wave etc....)

the rest of the time i look out for my friends because some of them think that doing a trick in front of me makes doble points !!! all this singing the stupid song i was listenig in the car...

sometimes i think about braking a line or even worse, losing my board and having to go back to the beach making a body drag...

yes it is alway some song that gets stuck in my head while i'm kiting. it used to be some groovey tune that i listened to in my car on the way to beach, but now that my car stereo broke and I have a 1 year old son I find myself out in the middle of winter lit with 7m kite in 30 knots wind singing to myself "if your happy and you know it clap you hands..if your happy and ...." it is a little bit wacky!

when i'm idle, not concentrated on the maximum angle to go upwind or the next move or mistakes from the last attempt to nail something and how to avoid them the next time ... mostly the last song i heard, too.
