Vaguely on subject Toby I’m interested do you go out in varying conditions / spots or do you only use the big kite, and therefore avoid higher wind / wave sessions and different spots (flat water, chop, waves etc)?
I tried all conditions before (Kiting since 2000) with big and small kites.
Found out that the best and safest conditions for me to progress are a 18 sqm kite in 15-25 knots.
Guess why my injuries are almost nothing while I filmed 2440 tricks pushing to new boundaries?
Remember a session in 40 knots with a 5.5.
Worst session in my life, not doing one trick, just normal jumps. Just dangerous, never felt any joy, just fear.
Up to 35 knots I can see people enjoying it, more? That gusty stuff is far from joy.
And pretty sure many go out to tell their buddies afterwards. Helps to impress chics for sure too
Been there done that, now progressed
More chicks to catch the more tricks you land
Boys, aren’t we?
Anyway, just enjoy what you do. But do really enjoy it...don’t do it for others
Just be safe, deal ?
Every time I read about a fatality it hurts me.
