About me

My name is Stuart Webb.
I've been kiting since 2003.
I typically get in around 60 sessions a year - the first couple of years probably more - so I reckon I've clocked over 800 sessions.  And I can't wait for the next one !
As of Feb 2017 I've spent approx. $9100 over the last 14 years - approx. $650 per year, or $10 per session.  Damn good run rate compared to snowboarding !
