Me. But I'm a lot more fussy about the conditions now.

Can't be bothered with light wind or really gusty conditions (unless it's nuking, and then the gusts go with the territory :naughty: )

Still am and after 16 years next week. I'm also more selective about conditions and get shorter, less frequent sessions in these days. This makes the times I can get out even better.

I don't kiteboard or surf but I'm still rolling around in the buggy after 17 years. Speed attempts keep me interested. Looking forward to riding the Black Rock desert and other dry lakes in Nevada next year. I use Genetrix Hydra. We have LEI's in common, which is why I lurk in background reading everything that comes up. Thanks BTW :D

Me!
14 years and my level is still getting better.
Started the sport because of jumping and still do.
The best feeling ever.

PS: not going out in any conditions like cold, stormy etc.
Lucky enough to select my conditions and skipped the trainer kites days.
18 is my number and not interested in anything else anymore...been there done that ;-)

Funny you ask. 10 to 15 knots, sun setting behind some storm clouds, some glassy flat sections between some great waves rolling in, just me and my bro on our 18m dynos, just a magic session.

After 14 years still stoked and the stoke grows every day.

Been at it for a few and still planning lunch time sessions!

Agree 100% about the "more selective" when looking at the conditions. But if its nuking I'm on the beach.... heart beating 200 over 250 putting the gear together thinking how big can I go (meters that is)...... lol

cheers
