Looks who's into kitesurfing now.

Like Secretariat - he didn't retire - he just got a better job.

There is no off season.

So, I guess he's leaving the windfoil to his bro', Diamond Joe?

Was just thinking - he probably shouldn't do the Branson trick of the nude model on his back. I wouldn't want to be around for the conversation when he got home and had to face the missus.

Looking at the video is doesn't look like Branson is very experienced either. Makes me wonder how he managed to pull off that photo with the girl riding on his back.

I am going have to seriously consider taking up kitesurfing. If old guys like that can do it, so can I.

You may have missed that Branson was learning to foil - that learning curve is pretty steep at the beginning for kites.

I'm not sure kitesurfing is for you, though. Who wants to spend all their time on the water with some scrawny lass hanging on your back? Looks like a good way to herniate a disc to me. Biggrin

Re: Looks who's into kitesurfing now.

I'm trying to remember something that seems somehow related.

Now I remember. "Take a ride with me on my foil and we can talk about the first thing that comes up."
