Looking for a video of guy in maui

Postby Drew22 » Sun Oct 20, 2013 6:06 pm

Someone posted a video of a french/foreign guy in Maui getting dragged don the beach, screaming at his wife and people and eventually ends up running into another kiter. I cant find it in any of the threads and I was telling my buddy about it and how funny it was and I would like to show him.

Should be right on top on the forum. Don't be like this guy in" feature" video. Maybe even with a flashing gold border, with some neon colors so you can't miss clicking on it.

Although Maui does have its fair share of morons. That's not on Maui.

The guy passing behind him and signing not to launch is hilarious.
This guy is very dangerous and should have been stopped sooner.

Yeah, I made the mistake of posting it in the thread about the problems at Kitebeach/Ka Point in Maui. It was only after looking at it more that I realized it was from Kitebeach in the Dominican Republic.

My favourite part is two minutes in when he narrowly escapes the board slingshotting at him from behind thanks to his board leash. I can't think of a better example to dissuade people from using them.

I'd like to know a bit more about what transpired and in what order; and what the argument at the end was all about (there's plenty to choose from).

As for Jean Claude himself, I'd hope that between very nearly injuring himself and others, or getting chewed-out that he might have learned something from the experience. Unfortunately, everything about his body language in the video suggests that he's someone more likely to blame others for his mistakes than he is to take personal responsibility for them (at least in stressful situations--which for him, this clearly was).

I have to wonder if he and his wife/girlfriend are still together. :P

Still, even without the context it's probably the best video of a kiteboarding dick I've seen. For straight-up idiocy, it's got to be this classic shot on a Sony PotatoCam:
