I’ll never forget this guy walks into pay his bill, he came to me and I’m like “dude what happened to your face?” cuz I was 22, and tells me he’s a kite surfer. (Keep in mind this is 2001, the safety systems were non-existent). He’s like, “I got taken up and smashed into the cliffs on Dallas Rd and it shattered my skull” and the first thing that I could think of was “and you still do this sport”? And he was like, “Ya, I love it”! And in that moment, I was SOLD! “If that shattered your skull and you still love it, then that’s the sport for me”!
