Weak enough to get his very own thread - And it wasn't even started by him!

No one ever starts threads about me... :(

And they think that I'm Steve... :cry:

Nah, it just irks me when a helmet is used as a safety pancea, when it is often irrelevant. Case in point: About a month ago, one of my sponsors* (Sid's Job) was getting a new piece of pavement put in. A backhoe had came and dug a 1ft deep, large square that concrete will rest in. The backhoe left a...

http://www.noc.com/ss/details/images/heshc01.jpg I think this one is kinda cool too :thumb: but does it offer as much protection as the holy? Just a question on that brain bucket...

Re: I pledge to wear a helmet from now on!

Every time i hear of someone gettng killed or badly hurt I have to tell you i feel terrible. This latest one from the UK makes me sick. I feel so sorry for his family and friends. In memory of him and others who have passed, I pledge as a fellow kitesurfer (who has never worn a helmet) to wear one ...

You used the word "safety" once in your compulsive posting affliction above and you look like a complete idiot - still! Steve - You are SOOOooooo close to forming a genuine, fact based arguement. Keep trying, because I *KNOW* you can do it!!! :thumb: For people like Steve, 'safety' and 'instructors...

Anyone who can SPELL 'instruction' or 'kite' should become a SKC (Sid's Kiteboarding Certification) instructor! If you send us $250,000 and we don't certify you - We'll give you a complete refund! Remember, it's not about money - It is about safety. And safety is WAY more important than silly money....

sid 5150 :thumb: What's there not to adore? Children trust him. He's used the word 'elbonic' in a sentence, and meant it! He can almost lick his elbow!!! I see Sid ripp'n it up every time I go out there, and I'm always impressed - But he's still down to earth enough to carry his own gear. A real cl...

No Worries! Lines will stretch as you fly - ESPECIALLY when they are brandy new! Most people don't even notice a difference in line lengths until sorting out their lines at home. Adjust the overall line-to-kite length using the pig tails on the kite IF you notice a pull to one side. If not, keep fly...
