cwood and Kykeon, is this because you got lots of wind regularly ?
Asking, as we got winds from zero to 40 knots and everything in between quite often.
This is the typical low pressure weather systems in northern europe all year - occasionally in high presssure (= low or no wind) spring and early summer we got seabreezes also with good wind.
BUT, still I ride 4 out of 5 sessions on a hydrofoil, and all the mates too, meaning TT riders are only out 20 % of the time we are, or less if no specific lightwind gear (which is the case for most kitesurfers).
Of course, we dont go out when the wind is LAME for surfboards or TTs anymore, where it is just perfect for waveriding on hydrofoils, so that might change the percentage a bit, and other TT riders are maybe out struggling on huge boring kites, trying to stay upwind, like we did years ago
But I know what you mean, most havent found the holy grail yet, so the majority stick to TT's almost never getting out, and we dont notice this of course, as we can ride, in most spots, EVERY single day of the year somewhere, if we wanted to...
