Bump?(WTF?) hmm.. Not sure what this is in "Tier 1" talk, but I'll take a guess!
Bag
Us
More
Please?
O.K., I'll bite.
"Long Live Freestyle" (OOPS, I think I just stepped in some stoke....)
B-obby is displaying what is known as "Sharing the STROKE". Both of you got into an arguement you can't win, its about access and safety and staying AWAY the beach, not how bitchen' yer new slider is, bro.
B-rad is in a high profile place, and has the responsibility of managing a bunch of kitelooping clowns when they are at his spot, and you are obviously one of them. He doesn't seem like he wants to say anything else here, so: What are you guys going to do to help the situation?
Whats it gonna take to get you off the beach?
I have an idea!
Load up those 3 dozen jet skis with tourists and drive them out to the sandbar where they can all look at you real close, get glamour shots, and even get your autograph.(replace you kite knife with a sharpie if you want) Show them you're rigged suicide style and they might tip you, bra!
I applied what I have heard and read about access, to what I saw last week. This was Neil's, Rick's,Kent's, everyone elses plan right?
(Just testing the waters, if you don't like it- then be pissed at them.)
"Tier 1's", as they are called, are at a serious disadvantage in this situation, and the forum floggings will continue until they get the picture.
I did my part by bringing it to everyone's attention, and its up to you, the "pro" kiters and "hanger-on'rs" to start showing some care for our access. Its not newbies that are the problem, its you guys.
Rock on B-ros.

Yo Bobby, Ian...it will be out this weekend...love you both long time...


Magnum...they are friends...no arguments there...

If you have been around a while you would know we have done events at the sandbar and will be doing them again...

I don't have time right now to address every silly issue you bring up...you are making fun of lots of hard work and friends...

got to go...

Actually I Didnt make fun of ANY hard work or friends. I even gave you some ideas.
I bagged on Bobby for sticking up for you at the wrong time.
As far as silly issues goes, I merely addressed a problem with a little humor. I have/will spare you of pointing out every "silly issue" I got you on and you confirmed. There's plenty.
Let's just call this water under the B-ridge, and call it even.

If I wasn't on your side then I would have taped it- and been sportin' some new neoprene, courtesy of Kent's offer for taping kooky behavior.(All Florida Contest thread). I wouldn't do that to a fellow kiter, period. I just shook my head and left...

I did goof on you,the "experts", and their new "system", because if they are not going to back up what they say, then its all just a big joke. High profile riders, shops, and schools have the burden in this situation, not safe kiters and hecklers like me. Just letting them know that we are willing to try their idea-IF THEY have the nuggets to back it up..I have SERIOUS doubts that sponsored riders, will ever lose their hook up because I know those friendships run deep and thats not likely to change, so therefore the "system" is not likely to work.
Hopefully 3 things happen from this thread:
1. The slider and kicker gets moved to the sandbar.
2. ALL Leaders think about the responsibility they carry to LEAD BY EXAMPLE.
3. Hot Doggers/Pros/Kooks realize that they are in the spotlight now more than ever- and will possibly be called out for riding too close to shore. It can be seriously funny, or just serious without the funny, but it's very easy to address publicly.
Kite safe

Thank you for galvanizing my point Kitehigh...
If you didn't understand it, sorry about your luck.

How far (how many kite line lengths) should sliders and particularly kickers be from shore and bystanders? How much distance do you need to burn up a messed up kiteloop in higher wind? What about using protective gear? Opinions?
