If I was the type, I would change religions often and be the most obnoxious, loud-mouthed convert the world has ever seen.
Or, if I frequently got a new pet, I would be instantly busy proselytizing about the amazing characteristics of Gila monsters or the like.
But after 17 years of windsurfing I believe I am putting it down to become a kiteboarder, and yes, I am singing the praises of this new activity to whomever will listen.
I’ve now kiteboarded in a variety of conditions using different equipment and believe it is the activity best suited to my declining physique and love of cool, surfboard-y things. Kites have a graceful, organic shape and I already enjoy calling everyone on the scene “dude.”
So until I change my mind, kiteboarding is the new ayatollah of rock`n’rolla.
