    Windsurfed for 30 years and checked out kiteboarding but gave it a pass after a friend got dumped on rocks, broke his leg which got infected and then lost the leg. Too risky for me. Foil windsurfing looks safer and uses some existing skills.

    that's crazy. was he in a 3rd world country ?
    I've heard many KITEMARE stories, pretty brutal. I have some scars.
    Kiting is a blast but thrashes you hard if you're jumping a lot and you're over 50 and not built like Laird Hamilton.
    Foiling is so much easier on the knees, the back, etc. Way more zen, too. Kiting is pretty aggro, all powered up.

    My daughter and I kited yesterday for the first time in 9 months. We were both nervous but we both got right back to where we were before, skills-wise (which isn't saying much). San Francisco bay is muddy and cold. My wife and our other daughter are holding out for a Maui trip.

    My whole body is sore.
