Remove kitesurfing from the Olympics

Postby Brock Landers » Tue Nov 06, 2012 3:48 pm

Just curious if I am the only kitesurfer who wishes kitesurfing would be removed from the Olympics? I liked our once relative anonymity. The whiny windsurfers can have their self perceived lime light back in the corporatist Olympics. I don't care.

I'm not a sailor nor was I ever a wind surfer. I was/am a surfer. Surfers and sailors are different. All of the guys I got into kitesurfing with were all surfers or wake boarders. AKA...chill dudes. Not these whiny snot nosed sailors who want to try racing in kitesurfing. I met a few for the first time about 2 weeks ago and I wanted to punch their snot nosed faces in. They acted like elitists. Aside from barely talking to anyone they didn't even rig up in the same area as the rest of the kiters and they all had that elitist look on their faces. You know what I'm talking about. Like the dick head in the movie Karate Kid from the Cobra Kai dojo. That blonde haired dude. The kind of face you just want to punch.

Here's another thing about kitesurfing in the Olympics. It's boring! I can hear the announcer now:

"And they're off! The blue kite is going in a straight line towards the first turn...all the other kites are going in a straight line towards the first turn...they are all going in a straight line now...some are faster than others but they are all going in a straight line towards the turn....now they made the turn and are headed back in a straight line again!"

So exciting.

HAHAHA
Personally, I would like to see the industry grow, so I am for kitesurfing in the olympics.

Regardless, that was one of the funniest posts I have ever read.

You really think the Olympics is going to make kitesurfing grow ?
Look at windsurfing: sure did not help !
