This is why kit is so expensive. Wind sports attract millionaires.

It's such risky business. Many big investment companies have tried to invest in kiting and ended up pulling out.

Problem is that the wind sport business just loves to develop over technical solutions to problems that do not really exist IMO.

Robby Naish has been a huge influence on me.

I have seen his recent life movie release and really enjoyed it, go see it when you can or if it comes out online.

Organic sessions......this is the way. :-)

so because he has a nice house you write him off as the problem..

his parents were not millionaires he worked, competed, won multiple titles and then put it all into his own company, no bank loans no investment partnerships, his cash, his name above the door.

if over 15 years ago he bought a plot of land built his house on it and through no fault of his, property is now valued so much higher than it used to be? good on him.

Good for him on achieving success. I hope he is selling because he wants a change and not forced.
