    • I am not a kite nut. Denial is the 1st step to denial. Number acquired doesn't have to mean you still have them.1 to 3 learning, getting good and still stable. 4 to 25 lost it a bit. Get the shakes when you look at another kite.Lots of agonizing counting pennies and doing research. Becoming dedicated to the craft. 26 to 50 you've gone nuts. See a kite you MIGHT like. Boom it's yours. Know more than you ever thought there was to know. How any sail loads or unloads makes perfect sense at a glance. Kite configurations cross your mind hourly.Permanent grin on your face when grabbing a kite even when there's no wind. 51 plus ? TOTALLY DEDICATED !!! Learning and sharing all things kites has become embedded in your soul.You might be nuts at any stage though if you think it'd be worth the trip to fly at a pink lake. 🌰🥜s.
