This is a kitesurfing discussion. Not talking about my clothes or getting laid or my job. Pretty comical though. And in fact I don't really care what image I project when kiting. I have a goofy looking pfd for instance. Probably makes me look silly. I don't really care though.
I meant to draw a comparison on what we do at the beach and in real life. Everyone wants to look good doing whatever they do. It's makes it hard to look decent when you're a grown man flying a cartoon! Just saying that if Wainman wanted to make a good marketing decision, they would realize that fully 90% of the people who use their gear are adult men, and fully 99.9% of those grown men care what they look like and are practical enough to know that a white kite will be a bitch to keep clean. I think it to be a fact that if you are aware that you look good doing whatever it is you are doing, it lends the confidence to BE
better at it. So in that light, you might want to invest in a cool looking PFD, if you even need one at all.

I loosen up by going kiting, and the winds have been pathetic and offshore for weeks on end. I think I have been being a bit of a dick because of this, so accept my apologies, and feel free to ride a cartoon if it suits you.
