Not that there is anything wrong with that. Rolling Eyes
I like to kite when I am feeling lazy and just want to do something easy.

easy and lazy that's pretty funny. I think there is a whole bunch of folks that would strongly disagree with that. Robbie, Pete , Nevin , MS. Just to name a few.

It's getting windy! Grab your pumps and ask a clueless bystander for help!

What are you trying to tell us? That everyone in your family is named after windsurfing legends, and that you all find kitesurfing difficult?

Indeed some folks might, but all my friends who crossed over from windsurfing to kite boarding (most of whom don't windsurf any more)
say exactly that.

Not sure how the lazy label would apply. Although I do really miss stacking three boards on my roof, and enough gear in my suv to start a rental center. I should have used a trailer, must be fun looking for 2 parking spaces. And there is nothing more fun than walking with a 140ltr board and a 8.5 sail , my neck really misses that.
I Love watching kiters pull up in their mini coopers and enough gear to ride from 8mph to 40mph , Lazy bastards!!!!
Now easy is another head scratcher . Not sure why easy would be a negative thing. Yes it may be easier to learn the basics than windsurfing. But to imply that easier means less challenging is ridiculous. Just like windsurfing there are many different disciplines and endless skills to learn. Do skills come quicker? yes. Will you master the sport in a few seasons? No.
Still love to windsurf, glad I do both.......

Kiting in waves is what I would call beginner wave sailing.

I don't think your idea of windsurfing and kiting are the same as my idea of windsurfing and kiting. I have never seen you out when I am out so I understand why you don't get what I am talking about. Wink

And that is ok so why are you getting all upset?

Oh and just so you know I have one windsurfing board and three kite boards. They basically take up the same amount of space.

and if you ever see me driving a Mini Cooper please do me a favor and just shoot me. Laughing

I guess we can't all just get along...

I like trees, Windsurfing and Kiteboarding. I have a lot of self loathing issues.

I don't care which is harder although i'm pretty sure its the Trees and I try to avoid them when doing any sport.

Who needs a session???!!!!
