yeah i decided to call in sick from kiting today. Gotta give my body a rest from all the adrenalie.
Its weird now hanging out on a windy day without kiting.
Yeah, I feel you Erin. On Sunday I was tapped from kiting at Dillon Beach on Saturday. A lot of adrenaline kiting what felt like the gates of hell. Sunday I managed to roll around on my skateboard powered by 3M but had no interest in pumping up a full size kite.

I was out at Crissy for only about 30 minutes before my hands were numb! It became miserable and I had to come in. But the wind was really nice. How did all of you guys handle it? More macho than me I guess.

I never really get cold in my torso area but my hands do. So i weqar some nice kiting or diving gloves. the problem is that it is a trade off of being warm to being fatigued from the increased amount of grip required when wearing gloves. i wish they made some of those ocean Rodeo gloves in 1mm thick, the 2 and 3mm are way too heavy.

That hand warming accessory is actually called a muff.
