Fun was had by all.
Joe talks to a Kiteboarder.
Joe to Kiteboarder: How long have you been kiteboarding?
Kiteboarder to Joe: I've been kiteboarding for 5 years. Before that, I windsurfed for 20 years.
Joe to Kiteboarder: Do you still windsurf?
Kiteboarder to Joe: No! My buddies and I sold all our gear. Kiteboarding is a lot more fun and less work.
Moral of the story: It's all about fun!
See you on the water!
Yes Virginia, kiters do jibe.

This should be an Olympic sport. I know you guys would get plenty of eyeballs to make your juiced up energy drink sponsors happy. After all, the Olympics is all about selling stuff that no one needs.
2012 ISAF Mid-Year Meeting Stresa, Italy
The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) has confirmed the final event and equipment selections for the Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition. The ISAF Council voted that Kiteboarding will replace windsurfing for the men's and women's board events and confirmed that sharks will be used to chase the kiteborders around the course.
"Kiteboarding has proven to us that it is ready to be included into the list of prestigious ISAF Events and it is a fantastic addition to the sailing programme for the 2016 Olympic Games. We expect to see many feeding frenzies caused by kiters lines becoming entangled. Who said sailing isn't a blood sport?"
See Miguel, even the ISAF considers Kiteboarding to be sailing.
Little Susi loves to fly....
...and boy can she fly!
It's called the coolness factor...plus wahines wearing bikinis...and for the wahines...the young turks.
That's why kiteboarding is sucking them into it's vortex. You should have seen the young ones tearing it up at Ocean Beach on Sunday. Freaking awesome!
