Developing Addiction

It seems I’m developing a new addiction:  kite-boarding!

Despite the fact that I have yet to actually ride for any length of time, I find that I am beginning to love kiting.  I love getting out in the water, love being active outdoors, and love the physical/mental challenge of it… including the challenge of staying calm while attached to a VERY powerful kite (more of a parachute really) while in the ocean.

I find that in the evenings I scan the wind forecasts to see if  I’ll be able to kite-board the next day!  And I am upset when the conditions are bad (as they were today).

Now if I can just get up and riding… I may develop a real addiction!!

Meanwhile, it’s great to be back in a place where I’m active and outdoors almost every day.  Big city life just isn’t for me (save for occasional visits)!

When I finally get up and running, I’ll have my wife shoot a short video and post it :)  Gotta celebrate those small successes!

    I really like your attitude: being active and having a passion is the best thing to “feel” alive! I remember one summer after failing twice an examination (geometry2) at the university because of a teacher that I couldn’t understand… I was so upset that to react I started learning wind-surfing! Not so easy for a girl because you need muscles in your arms to keep the sail! But I forgot all the sorrow and I spent a very good summer! And “the Universe” also helped me! The next year the Geometry2 teacher was a young nice and very skilled guy and I passed the examination at the first try!!! I think we always have to have a true passion!!!
    I’ve two actually: English and (the most recent) Japanese!!!
    Enjoy kite-boarding!
