Earlier we wrote an article about why kitesurfers can best date a kitesurfer. In this article we explain why, as a non-kitesurfer, it’s better not to date a kitesurfer. No matter how beautiful it all seems … long days on the beach, tanned skin, beach hair, good body and so on. Relationships between kitesurfers and non-kitesurfers rarely last.
Do you dare it? Don’t say we didn’t warn you. In fact … don’t end up complaining to him / her that you see each other too little, for example. You have been warned!
10 reasons why you shouldn’t date a kitesurfer
1. You always come in second place
We can better be clear about it. Kitesurfing comes first, you come (hopefully) in second. This will never change!
2. He / she cancels your date or appointment last minute
Kitesurfing comes first. So if the wind suddenly starts to blow … he / she is not going to have dinner with you. Maybe after his day on the water but then he / she is so tired that he / she probably doesn’t feel like it.
3. He / she only wants to go on holiday to destinations where the wind is good
Choosing a nice sun holiday together? He / she already has in his / her mind where the wind blows well and where beautiful spots can be found. There is a good chance that he / she pushes these destinations forward as: “beautiful sun destinations”. Eventually you sit in the sun on a deserted beach with sand flying around as there is 25-30 knots of wind every day. Wonderful sun holiday!
4. He / she can only talk about one thing
There is a good chance that his / her passion for kitesurfing has since turned into an addiction. I don’t want to say he / she has a tunnel vision but there is only one thing that really matters and that is kitesurfing. And that is all he / she is talking about … kitesurfing, kitesurfing and more kitesurfing.
5. If he / she asks you to go to the beach, it’s not for a pleasant afternoon but so you can take photos
Is he / she asking you for a nice day at the beach? Forget it… prepare yourself that you can stand by the water for hours to take pictures of him / her. As a result, soaked socks and frozen fingers.
6. He / she gets grumpy if the wind doesn’t blow for a while
Addicts also have to do with withdrawals. For example, kitesurfers must be constantly fed with adrenaline. Isn’t it windy for a while? Prepare yourself…
7. Avoid chic dinners with the family
Where you like to dress up occasionally for a fancy dinner with the family, he / she has nothing else in his closet than hoodies. And preferably he / she also puts on a cap or beanie.
8. ‘Planning’ something nice? Forget it…
Making plans? Kitesurfers already get itchy with the idea. The only thing he / she plans is free weekends and kite sessions. All other appointments and fun outings go last minute.
9. Going out on a Friday or Saturday night? No, he / she wants to be fit
Going out late, resulting in a big hangover and relaxing on the couch all day? No, if there is even a slight chance of wind, he / she wants to be fit the next day and therefore goes to bed on time. Especially at the weekend!
10. They speak their own language
Knots, choppy, kiteloop, stoked … what is he / she talking about? Kitesurfers have their own language that you probably don’t understand.
Still want to go for it?
