Are you crashing enough? Failure is your friend | Big Air Kitesurfing | Get High with Mike

If you're not failing, you're not trying hard enough. Sometimes we get complacent, go out there and keep doing the same old tricks we know we can land. You know what I'm talking about? Start your sessions with a vision and goals in mind. Hold yourself accountable and make sure you actually try to reach those goals!

How did you get to the level you're at? Did you just stay within your comfort zone? No you didn't! Success lies outside of your comfort zone, and the road to success is paved in failures. As Will Smith said, "Fail early. Fail often. Fail forward." Raising a glass to that one 🍺

I can only agree 👍🏻

I assume I am the biggest crasher out there, since every filming session (95% of my time I film) I crash about 50-70% of my trick attempts.

So around 100 attempts per session I can land 10-30 new tricks...depending on how hard they are.
I land those tricks about 1-3 times until I have the as perfect as possible stylish trick with a good landing.

The crashing is frustrating, but landing the new trick wipes away that frustration and brings a big happiness!

And with crashes also come new ideas!
