The Thrills and Spills of Living in a Reno During a Kiteboarding Competition[email protected] Article
Imagine waking up to the sound of hammers while dreaming of waves – that’s living in a bathroom renovation north bay, or ‘reno’ for short, during a kiteboarding competition. It’s like trying to nail a kite loop while someone plays drums in your living room.
Rise and Shine: The Construction Alarm Clock
Your usual beachside dawn patrol is replaced by the sweet serenade of power tools. Who needs an alarm when you have a symphony of saws at 7 a.m.?
- Early Starts: The early bird gets the worm, but the early kiteboarder gets the best winds – and the first cup of coffee before the contractors hog it.
Breakfast with a Side of Dust
Forget the sand between your toes; it’s the sawdust in your cereal that you’ll need to get used to. Every meal is a ‘crunchy’ surprise.
- Mealtime Adventures: Eating in a reno zone requires creativity – like using your board as a makeshift table when the kitchen’s off-limits.
Finding Zen Amidst the Chaos
Trying to visualize your next trick can be challenging when your meditation soundtrack is a nail gun.
- Mental Gymnastics: It’s all about perspective. Think of the reno ruckus as a test of your focus – if you can keep your zen here, you can keep it anywhere.
The Balancing Act of Gear Storage
With space as limited as a downtown parking spot, storing your gear becomes a game of Tetris.
- Creative Solutions: You’ll learn to store kites in places you didn’t know existed – like that empty cupboard under the stairs or the bathtub (just make sure it’s dry first).
Conclusion: Surfing the Reno Wave
Living in a reno with a north bay contractor during a kiteboarding competition is not for the faint of heart. It’s a tale of perseverance, of finding harmony in chaos, and of keeping your gear dust-free. But as any true kiteboarder knows, it’s all about riding the wave – whether it’s made of water or the unpredictable tides of renovation. So slap on a smile, strap on your harness, and remember: after the dust settles, you’ll have a killer spot to rest after a day on the water.
