Kitesurf

The fine line between adventure and misadventure‏ - Louis Tapper journey contd.

If you were getting bored with the daily updates of waiting for wind, eating good food and drinking beer on the beach, then today’s adventure, or misadventure might just peak your interest again. The incident today was potentially the most dangerous situation in my 3.5 years of kitesurfing. I don’t need a reminder that there is a fine line between adventure and misadventure and fortunately today I stayed on the right side of that line.
