Yesterday I got back on the water after 7 and a half weeks of not kiting thanks to my broken finger. It's going to be a while before I'm un-hooking again but OMG it is SOOO good to be back on the water!
With the finger heavily strapped, I decided to go out on Sunday afternoon and see how it felt. I felt a lot of nervous excitement as I set up on the beach but as soon as I hit the water I had overwhelming feeling of joy - turquoise sea, good wind, friends all around, my kite in the air and I was free! As I rode away from the beach with a massive grin on my face I heard everyone on the beach cheer - I clearly haven't hidden my frustration at being injured very well! Thanks to everyone who has put up with me and who was so welcoming when I came back to the beach yesterday - kiter communities are the best.
Sometimes a time-out gives you a new persecutive on things. My time out just re-affirmed what I already knew. I love kiting!
