I'm with you superstoke on this one. How hard is it to ask a kiter to help instead of letting some clueless chic launch you. How the do we know that she doesn't kite. Were not really that cool but we are too damn cool to run some dudes lines and beg to launch him. Ask for help and you will get it. Pat your head and you will get landed.superstoke wrote:Some guy asks his clueless girlfriend to launch him and totally kooks out then gets pissed that people didn't drop everything they were doing. Give me a break. What an arrogant prick. Then all these internet do-gooders that come and chime in how much they help people bring the arrogance to a whole new level.
Excellent post.papasmerf wrote:Has anyone ever wondered about the whole liability thing when launching someone. I mean, people sue people for EVERYTHING these days.
so let's say some strangers, (total newbies or little experience) show up at your beach and you're a local who knows how dangerous it is to launch there due to rocks, gusty winds, whatever. they ask you to launch them but even at the correct angle they can still screw it up somehow, like oversheeting the kite so it falls back and rolls, then hot launches and you (the launcher) can't get to it in time.
they could easily sue you saying it was your fault.
let's say you tell them the safest way to launch at your beach but they argue with you? They insist on launching in a more dangerous manner, do you still launch them or do you let them do it themselves
hey, i'm still going to launch anyone who asks but I'm just saying, a scenario like this is just a matter of time.,,,plus i'm at work and bored, that's really why i'm posting this
