Friendship for the passion of kitting .


well it already overdue .

Just want to say , i had been at camber sand UK on sunday 15th oct and do some landboarding with 3 other kitting guy from london in which i only meet and know each other on the same day .

I had been visiting UK ( Northampton ) from 14Oct to 21Oct after left madrid . it all for a company work trip . now i at erfurt germany .
Before i go , i do make plan to visit some kitting spot in UK and hopefully meet some well know kitting guy .well , i do know it really small changes .

Then it just happened
I make friend a guy at FB on 13th oct which he post a plan to kitting at camber sand on sunday 15th oct . ( I read his posting a edited video of AJ , kris beech etc while i at madrid ) .
After several pm forthback he offer to pick-up me at one of the train station ( barking station london ) and bring me with them in a car to camber sand ( 3 of them ) , then only we introduce each other .
It almost 1 and half hour travel one way . now i know it not easy to reach camber sand by my own . They pick-up me at 10am and drop me back by 8 pm .

They let me wear their extra harness then take turn to use their kite 12m speed 3 and venom 2 16m , trampa board and the helmet , while one of the guy shoot video of us .
there is a video of us posted at Fb , if someone need proof .
:D:D:D . well at least i appear several sec as nothing much to show , i dont push any trick just normal jump, to stay out of trouble so does my skill level ..lol .:D:D:D

I have to say , i never expect this kind of treat and trust to me .
All those kitting guy out-there they are awesome !!!!! .:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

I guess it the passion of this kitting make we trust each other , then we should have the same obligation and trust to treat everyone the same way at our home spot .

I agree with you. I have met so many friendly and kind people in many different areas of the kiting community. I just try to also pass it along as much as I can.

I was at Camber on that day, sunny and windy if I remember correctly. Straight on-shore and very crowded but still an excellent day. I talked to 3 Polish kite boarders in the parking lot, you weren't with them were you?

I go to Camber frequently and would be happy to give you a ride from South London, PM me when you are next in town. I don't have any landboard gear but you are welcome to use my buggy.

Camber is a friendly place. Kite surfers, Landboarders and buggiers all hang out with no problems.

JWC-- Founding member and self appointed president.

You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore, ...and also a boat with no holes in it.

The kite fraternity is great. I remember a time when visiting another city a guy (whose initials a ss) let me use his landboard and gave me a ride back to the airport. I also was passing through another city and met up with another guy (initials EC) and got a few runs in as well. We are all kind of "one in a million" (Atlanta has more than 2 million people and only two kite buggiers that I know of) so we have to stick together.
