WOW. That's so rad man!

I'm especially impressed that Blade promotes behavior that includes flying your kite over non-kiters and cars parked in a lot or at the end of a street.

Haha from that angle it looks dicey. But I can reassure you no persons or cars were hurt in the making of this film.

Perhaps you prefer "conduct"?

So when you look at this vid that is what you see!??

I feel sorry for you man.

If it had been some kind of reckless behaviour I would most certainly agree but I just can't see that.

Awesome waveslashing btw! :)

PS: A bit puzzled over the weather though ? Boots and Hoods ? How cold is the air and water since it is close to full winter suit ?

They are way up in the 'redwoods', Santa Cruz area, which is NorCal. Most people associate California with SOUTHERN California, aka SoCal.
And yes, the Pacific is quite chilly there - earth rotation and an Alaskan current is keeping this part of the coast at a refreshing 60 and less ...

And as for the bystander; that's about the same as in HI. In Kailua you've to rig almost inside a parking lot and launch/walk thru the beach crowd. Maybe I should bring a roll of bubble wrap for the faint of heart ... :lol:

peace

Maybe when one of you has an accident walking "thru the beach crowd" and either injure or kill some celebrity tourist so it becomes global news, you can send some extra bubble wrap to the other locations which will want to ban kiting.

Oh. I forgot. You haven't had an accident, so you won't have an accident.
