Should be to take up wing foiling. You'll see how addictive it is 😎

No thx, flying thru the air and landing soft is addictive to me since 20 years.

Let's see if you wingfoil in 20 years too 😁

Got in a rut, doing same ole stuff this year. Feel with all the covid stuff it’s put a bit of a damper on things. Saying that we did have a good windy year in the UK , which saved most of us sanity.

Time to get out of the rut , push and unlock a few new tricks for me .

Same as always
Spend as much time as possible on the water smiling and stoked
Whether from landing a new trick on a wave, cruising around with friends or coming up, breaking the surface spitting and laughing realizing that I was no where close to landing that last attempt. Just being on the water with wind and sun is THE BEST.

Either have as many sessions as my age or shoot my age at golf. Number of sessions is probably more realistic (I'm 67).

Toby - see how many of your tricks you can do in one session... :thumb:

Meet up with the awesome 40+ yr old guy guy i met last session who's starting to throw big loops.

Throw bigger loops myself and start to step it up a notch.

Backroll kiteloop transition.
