I’ve never been very athletic. I keep reasonably fit, but team sports or activities requiring any sort of co-ordination just aren’t really a family pass-time. I remember one long weekend at a park when all the other barbecuing families were playing touch football or catch, my cousin mike spent a couple hours teaching us kids how to sharpen our knives safely and correctly.
I’d tried wakeboarding a couple times, with absolutely no success. I couldn’t imagine ever being capable of even riding a kiteboard, let alone handling the setup with the ease and grace of the experienced boarders dancing across the waves of the Columbia.
