The Buddy System by David Dorn
Buddy up
Kiting is better with a buddy, when you share the experience it is more rewarding, and it is also safer. Your buddy can be a lifesaver, because he is watching out for you, knows when you are in trouble, and waits till you get back to shore safely.
On the water your buddy can get your board back to you or give you feedback about conditions and more. Off the water you can share stories and keep each other motivated.
