Does anyone else notice how QUIET it gets when you leave the water? It's like time stops.

Does anyone else get a kick out of the sound the kites sometimes make whe hucking big air and moving it back and forward? Sometimes it sounds really cool, kind of like a jet or something.

The only time I've heard that is when someone kiting next to me sends a big jump. It always make me turn my head and look, which is nice 'cuz that way I get to see a move I otherwise would have missed.

It's harder going out because you're fighting the chop. Coming in, you accelerate riding the "swells" .
