I was never drawn to kiting like I was windsurfing. Started windsurfing way before the kite was invented. Always kind of afraid of the kite and the strings and all of that, heard and seen some horror stories. Looks like a lot of the early danger problems with the kite have been worked out. I like the simplicity of the windsurfer, but the kiters look to get way more radical. In any case, too late to teach this old dog how to kite, I'll stick to the windsurfer.
