Get more confident in jumps and actually land them. Start doing first tricks.

Either have as many sessions as my age or shoot my age at golf. Number of sessions is probably more realistic (I'm 67).
Good one !!
After yesterday's session....that would make me 187 years young !!

But really the goal
Try to maintain an averAGE of 180 days of kitesurfing yearly
They only exercise i care about and get to do
Happy New Year
Happy winds !!
Starting fresh at zero so far today

To grow a pair and finally send a down loop or heli loop from a jump and maybe finally crack a back roll.

In 2020 I kited least since I started kiting.

A combination of building a business on the side while still working s day job, injury and covid.

My skill and enthusiasm has dropped off. I now don't care if I miss a session. Gone is the addiction.
To some degree that is a good thing. Kiting had become all consuming and other parts of my life suffered. There definitely wasn't balance.

Now there is more balance in my life.

So... My goal would be to get out there when conditions are good. Build some flow back that I have lost through lack of riding (and some abs). But not let the addiction take over again.

2020 season was great, for 2021 I could only wish for the same number of sessions.
- break the 15m hight barrier
- Get more comfortable with kiteloops at 10+ meters high
- land proper boogieloops with enough time to helliloop on the way down.
- never miss a session when the wind is blowing 25+ knots
- little bit of new gear here and there;
- add more style to my overall riding. (proper pre-pop for air style jumps,

Not so bad goals considering 2020 was my first real season ever;

looking forward for 2021 and wish you all to stay safe and get lots of kiting.

2020 was also a good year for me, got into first unhooking, nice (down)loops.

For 2021, I have the following goals
- Consistent jumping above 10m.
- Backroll Kiteloop
- Loops above 8m
- Proper Heliloops (especially timing)
- Low kite loops-late bankroll
- S-bend
- Railey to Blind

I think all these goals are achievable.

Nothing sexy, but 20 sessions on water in Norway! Bought a car last year purely for kiting (downtown Oslo you rarely need a car - especially as I like to cycle). So should be possible. Envy those that live closer to a place with more regular wind. Definitely got to move again within a couple of years.
