LEARN KITESURFING – AN OPTION? 

Earth revolves around the sun, it is day, it becomes night. Life goes on. One day follows the other…

There is a series of things that we repeat every day … and every night. We eat, we work, we sleep, we relation ourselves with other people, some even mate. We practice sports – that is something more plausible – and, going even further. Some learn kitesurfing. Learn kitesurfing – an option?

Learn kitesurfing!

Kitesurfin what is that?

Kitesurfin, no, kitesurfing! ends in ggggggg!

Oh okay, so what?

 

LEARN KITESURFING – AN OPTION? 

So, learn kitesurfing!
what for? … how dumb this sounds! … Nonsense!

Nonsense not, it’s really cool …
Look, it’s a sport, it’s a lot of fun, you’re going to exercise, get in shape, actually you’ll fly over the water,
You’ll make a lot of friends, you’ll never feel alone anymore, you’ll have a great time, beleive it!

I am not feeling alone right now though, but, however … that must be expensive, right?

Expensive? no man! … no way! Mmm … well … maybe a little …

How much is a little?

three hundred euros

three hundred euros? for what?

for lessons …

for lessons? Jesuschrist! this is not cheap …
And … how much cost the equipment?

well, it depends …

What depends on?

On what you want to buy
A new kite cost real money, but … there are also used kites

And … they will not be broken?

Well, sometimes, a little bit … some yes, some not …
That’s why you have to choose well when buying a kite

And you’re sure this is fun?
Some bad part this must have …

Not man, no! … don’t worry!

Well, to be honest … sometimes you have to wait a little for the wind to start blowing …
Other times, when you are kiting, the wind just fades and that is the end of the navigation …

Ah! … and some times when you are pumping the kite … a valve fails, and, fiiissssshhhhh … it deflates
And sometimes you’re riding too fast or you jump and you lose control and … guashhhh!!! … big crash against the water! Or … a line breaks and this can be dangerous … and expensive, by the way

Apart from the fact that when wind is light, all kiters start to get downwinded and everybody must try to reach shore because, as people kite with small kites and also small boards, of course … the lack of proper wind create big massifications of kiters crossing ways and annoying each other …

And … oh! yes! … sometimes when you are kitesurfing everybody is crossing each other’s way,  lines cross, tangle and that is a big mess …


therefore, when people get downwinded and end up sailing inside the buoys which mark the bather’s area … if in that moment pass the Guardia Civil, you may get fined with 3000 euros penalty …

Hey!, you’re starting to convince me, do not stop now …

Aha! … an option, ins’t it?

… mmm … do not stop now? … what do you mean?

I have a friend who is masochist and when I will tell him about that, I’m sure he’ll be veeeeery interested!
It sounds as a real bitchy activity and it seems to me, the perfect ground for real suffering …

Author’s Note:
Come on, relax, that’s all a joke. It is a very cool sport
Considering that, if you live in Mallorca and want to kitesurf in summer, which is when the kiting appeals, do not get wrong!
Bes thing to do, you buy a large board, or at least a medium to large one, and, if possible, a Flysurfer kite – a 15 meters size or even bigger-
