New Summer Water Activity: Kiting or Windsurfing?


Recommended Posts

I spend about a month a year in Florida, with a couple of trips to the Mediterranean in the fall and winter thrown in to keep the beach-happy wife pleased. I get bored easily, so I'm looking to pick up a new hobby.

I tried kiting once, but it seemed incredibly dangerous, and the thought of untying lines and pumping up the goddamned kite drove me mad. I also found the skimboard that you do it on to be useless in deep water. The sport isn't so much about surfing as it as about being dragged along unpredictably on a wakeboard.

Windsurfing I've never tried, but it's safer and I can rent equipment anywhere I go. Would it be that much more boring than kiting, or is getting lofted into the parking lot really worth it?
