Great post: The joy of kitesurfing lies in different disciplines to learn to keep one motivated and engaged. Its not a 'one trick pony'.

Progression have it spot on: I felt (feel!) the same way learning directional surfing; crashes, body dragging, loosing the board and generally looking like a numpty.

Its all too easy to regress to a comfort zone (for me mowing the lawn with a TT) as you feel back in control and less of a numpty again. But when it does (occasionally for me) connect the feeling is fantastic.

Try a new discipline if you already haven't - it gives a fresh feeling to this great sport. Whats great about kiting in this area is that you can try all those disciplines in one place.

We just need some decent weather to try new things out: A consistent cross onshore breeze in Porthcawl would make it world class ;-)

Just had an awesome session on the foil at Coney Beach, max 12mph flat as a witches tit and wall to wall sunshine ! 8-)

An interesting read for anyone thinking about dipping a toe in the foil pool :D

I’m at stage 8+ I think I’m now a kitefoiler more than a kitesurfer!!
