    well, i've had a change of lfestyle recently.
    between training with my volunteer fire department, hanging out wth my little brother (Big Brother, Big Sister), and training for a triathlon, I don't have much time for hobbies. Fortunately, all of these activities are so rewarding that I count them as hobbies, too =0P

    Those look like some very fun hobbies, especially the kiteboarding.

    Sadly, I don't really have any outdoor hobbies anymore. It's something I hope to remedy in the future.

    Years ago enjoyed photography, shortwave radio, scanner radio, cartooning, reading SF and Fantasy, yoga, meditation, and Qigong. Built some electronic kits also.
    But unfortunately over the past few years I've fallen off the wagon and haven't been able to make time for them.

    hobbies?

    i love to read,
    i shoot - shotgun (both clays and hunt),
    i airsoft (i know, i know, but its at least some fitness too...!),
    i have just started exercising (semi) regurlarly again after around 18 months of giving up the gym to afford a house,
    i have started krav maga which i really enjoy.

    i rather fancy cooking alot more too. im not bad now, but rather 'traditional' i suppose. healthier eating combined with new ideas really appeals to me.

    i love cooking for the lady and her mom. guess that's a necessity though since we all trade days cooking.

    i love muay thai, mixed martial arts, traditional martial arts, and enjoying a nice cigar a few times a month.

    for anyone else who lights up, give the CAO traviata maduro divino a shot. a quality smoke for 7 bucks or so. my preferred flavor aside from the CAO brazilia.

    Lots of hobbies, but right now I'm spending a lot of time hiking. It's really fun and I get to geek out with gear =) Bags, knives, bottles, clothes, etc etc etc. Fun stuff!

    Reading, generally non fiction, fantasy/sci-fi. I will read almost anything---the only thing I will give shelf space to is non fiction. I truly believe that one of the best things a parent can do for a child is to try to instill a love of reading. If you can read and comprehend what you are reading, you can learn almost anything.
    BTW, I read much better than I write.
    Bicycling and bike commuting.
    Surfing the web, I'm an information junkie.

    I've been studying Tanimura-ha Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu for about 10 years. Big movie and music nut. I used to do some climbing, not so much since having a kid. A doodler more than anything when it comes to drawing. Raising the awesomest daughter on the planet is more of a passion than a hobby.

    Travel...travel and more travel!

    I have a BAD travel bug - and have spent more time traveling around the US & Canada in the last 4 months than I have here! (I have made 4 trips across in 4 months - as I have to come back for work in between)

    Cycling is my other hobby - try to combine it when overseas but usually ends up being on a spin bike in the hotel gym.

    Also love swimming..laps laps and more laps :)

    Biggest hobby..directly related to my travel bug is chasing the remaining Space Shuttle launches since STS-131 in April last year :) (expensive hobby but oh so very worth it)

    So the travel also ties in nicely with EDC - although what I carry around now is a lot different to what I first carried as EDC!
